"I've never organized a fundraiser." "I'm not sure how much we made last year." "The volunteer that had all the data from our last event has left so we're not sure who gave us donations last time." "Closing the auction was a nightmare. A few items went to the wrong people. We're still trying to sort it out."
We know the challenges of putting on a successful fundraiser through our own experiences as well as from attending other events. That knowledge has been used to create hibid.
Absolutely! You don't need a location. We cover all the bases from registration to bidding to checkout.
Definitely! From online ticket sales to bid sheets to interactive slideshows to online guest access to self-serve checkout. Plus cash donation and other revenue tracking and integration. Plus tax receipts. And more ...
Yes! The gala options give you the world of possibilities. Simply use what you need and bypass the rest.
It's free, except for online payments. If you want to allow your guests to pay online for tickets or use the self-serve checkout we charge a 1% fee on top of the fee charged by the credit card processor. You have the option of adding our fee to the amount owing.
Manage your event wherever you are through our secure admin portal.
Tailor access to what people need to do so that the work is spread out among your volunteers.
Define as many auctions as you need, each with its own characteristics.
Create bid sheets with donor logos. Optionally preprint bid increments.
Get featured on our event pages. Preview some or all of your auction items. Include links to your donors' websites.
We have an easy to use plugin that allows you to display your auction items dynamically on your website.
Feature your items on a slideshow with item pictures and donor logos. Optionally display bids in real time. Add a target and watch your current totals move across the screen.
Allow your guests to register online for your event.
Give your guests the option of paying online for their tickets and items.

Guests with online access can see their results on their phone and skip the checkout by paying directly from their smart phone.
Can include payments for tickets (minus the advantage), overbid items, and cash donations. Also available for item donations.
Lots of pdf style reports on everything you can imagine.
