An Integrated Solution
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. No need to track the details using different systems, spreadsheets, or other documents. Your data is always available to you - even after the event is complete.
From Online Auctions ...
You don't need a location. We cover all the bases from registration to bidding to checkout.
To Galas ...
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 ...
And Everything In Between
Give your guests access to follow the auctions on their phone. Optionally allow bidding - even when bid sheets are present. Or open bidding early and switch to bid sheets during the event. A great option for golf tournaments.
Free To Use
The core of hibid is accessible without a fee. That means you can enter items, create bid sheets, track guests, run a slideshow, record cash donations, create an event page, offer online bidding, create tax receipts, run reports, enter payments, export your data, and more - all for no charge.
The only thing we charge for is processing online credit card payments in real time*.
* 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. Credit card payments are processed through Stripe. The money is deposited directly to your account, minus the fees. We do not store credit card information.
Secure Web Access - Manage your event wherever you are through our secure admin portal.
Multiple Users - Tailor access to what people need to do so that the work is spread out among your volunteers.
Event Page - Get featured on our event pages. Preview some or all of your auction items. Include links to your donors' websites. We also have an easy to use plugin that allows you to display your auction items dynamically on your own website.
Online Registration - Allow your guests to register and pay online.
Bid Sheets - Create bid sheets with donor logos. Optionally preprint bid increments.
Slideshow - Feature your items on a slideshow with item pictures and donor logos. Add a target and watch your current totals move across the screen. Optionally display bids in real time. Even create your own custom slides.
Online Bidding - Let your guests bid from their phone - even when bid sheets are present.
Checkout - Print individualized checkout summaries that you can give your guests before they pay. Cashiers have access to the same information online so that payments can be recorded easily. Guests with online access can see their results and skip the checkout by paying directly from their smartphone.

Even More - Define multiple auctions; track cash donations and other revenue like raffle tickets and treasure box sales; create tax receipts; export your data into Excel or other programs.
