Pros

I also want to note that the support team is outstanding and I was extremely satisfied with the helpful and knowledgeable service.

DW

Dawn W.

The one thing that impressed both my co-chair and I was the amazing customer support. The people we spoke to knew their product and provided the help we needed.

KJ

Kathy J.

It created a appealing site for our on-line auction. The support was amazing, turn around time in minutes, it was like having someover your shoulder.

CA

Carolee A.

JB

Jim B.

This was so easy to use. We hired one of their recommended deveopers, they built the website and truly it was flawless.

Cons

I had some trouble using the messaging features like emails. Hard time getting it formatted the way I wanted it and it lost some of our graphics after posting.

LS

Linda S.

They had horrible customer service and wanted to know WAY to much personal information about me in order to open an account. But that isn't Silent Auction Pro's fault.

John F K.

If you are looking for a platform on which to manage your silent or live auction – onsite or virtual – look no further.

BP

Bea P.

Cons

System is in serious need of a user experience upgrade - badly. It was extremely frustrating to figure out and some of the services required code-knowledge.

JB

James B.

Ultimately, between the odd culture and the mess of the social profiles, we ended up switching to a different software.

JP

Janae P.

It's also very, very expensive. The "newsfeed" type feature showing people who subscribed/unsubscribed/interacted in social media was strange and useless.
