Pros

I love that I can use this all all-in-one for an event. The best feature is the text-to-give as well as the live thermometer that you can use at an event to encourage people to help meet the goal.
We had only a few weeks to turn our auction virtual and GiveSmart was super user friendly and easy to set up. Donors loved how easy it was to bid and watch on items.
GiveSmart is very intuitive and easy to use. Couple that with awesome, supportive customer service, and this software is a winner.

Pros

Snowball is a great product that makes it that much easier to raise money via text-to-give and other useful features. They provide a great customer and user experience.
Snowball tools helped Encuentro take our fundraising activities to the next level - super easy to use and set-up campaigns and I love the text to give feature and online auctions.
Adding items takes minutes and editing them is just as easy. I loved the simplicity of the auction itself and that it could be run by one person short on time.

Cons

The only problem is that we do not have an easy connection between GiveSmart & our accounting system. Our Treasurer has trouble with what she receives from GiveSmart.
One thing that our donors had trouble with was the checking out process.
Unfortunately, in a virtual setting, it seems less risky to run the site and auction yourself on the day of the event.

Cons

My organization is still charged the processing fees. I would imagine this is "industry standard.
Every once in a while, a purchaser has failed attempts at donating/purchasing a ticket. This usually leads to a double charge with the need to refund.
Sadly, it just was not robust enough for our needs.
