Fantastic Auction Program & Service

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was very impressed with the access I had to get questions answered promptly. Suggestions were given on how we could have a more successful auction. It was great to work with [SENSITIVE CONTENT] He really knows his product. I have worked with other on-line auctions and they did not hold up in comparison to Better World. I will recommend them to anyone I can now and in the future.

Pros

It was easy to understand. It is intuitive and they clearly were able to anticipate the needs the customer has in order to run a successful auction !

Cons

I think the tutorials are well done but I found it so much more beneficial since it was my first time, to use their concierge service. It was well worth the modest price.

Totally Failed Us in the Most Critical Moment of Our Year

Reviewed 9 months ago

Awful. It is well-intended by very poorly executed.

Pros

The interface looks good enough, albeit somewhat dated. The BetterWorld items you can add to auctions are great, and I also like how I can list things we do and allow people to donate toward that specific cause.

Cons

It didn't work. We hinged a lot of our fundraising strategy on our silent auction, but when we got to our event, most people couldn't bid. They instead got a message that they needed to accept terms and conditions, but there was no clear way to do that. We ended up having to do a messy hybrid of online and in-person bids, but this put our online bidders at a severe disadvantage. BetterWorld's ineptitude cost us a lot of money and was easily the worst part of our event. Stay away.

Small nonprofit enjoyed using BetterWorld

Reviewed 3 months ago

I would absolutely recommend this system to nonprofits for their fundraising events. It was easy to use and helped us eliminate more than $1,000 in costs compared to similar products.

Pros

Cost: we are a small organization that needs to keep costs low, but we also needed a digital platform for our events and sponsors. This was a great solution. Easy of use: Our members could easily use the system to set up auctions, activations, donors, tickets. etc. In addition, our supporters generally found the system easy to use!

Cons

Limited customer support, but we could have paid for a person to be available for support if needed.

Great Platform for Non-Profit Fundraising Events

Reviewed a month ago

I have been very happy with BetterWorld and would recommend them to anyone looking to generate funds for a cause.

Pros

BetterWorld has made creating, managing, and sharing our fundraising activities with club members and on social media a breeze. The set-up is super simple and the customer support is top notch.

Cons

The system defaults to donating a high percentage of contributions to help BetterWorld offset their cost of doing business.

KRFC 88.9 Auction with BetterWorld

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

User friendly. great customer service, low fees

Cons

Our auction ended on a Sunday outside of BetterWorlds hours. We had an issue with a bidder making a mistake. His mistake could not be retracked because BetterWorld was closed, so that kind of messed up the auction item.

BetterWorld - Non-profit Fundraising

Reviewed 2 years ago

In addition to auctions and raffles, they also offer ticketed events and donation campaigns. Overall, I've been extremely impressed with BetterWorld. It has helped our non-profit soup kitchen raise funds free of charge! The product is super easy to use, and they have a stellar support team.

Pros

I searched high and low for a affordable software package to conduct online auctions and raffles. BetterWorld is free! They make their money through contributions; transactional fees that are voluntary for the end-user. Their mantra is "Organizations should be able to raise funds for free and keep 100% of what they raise." This is true, as many of our donors cover the payment processor fee! I used BetterWorld as our primary fundraiser during Covid, when we quickly changed our fundraising model to online only. It was incredibly easy to set up, and I could easily track and download incoming donations. I think it's a great product, and a great price for non-profits. As an added bonus, their support is VERY responsive!

Cons

If your donor isn't aware, they'll be charged the fees to support BetterWorld. You have to uncheck the box before checkout. We had one user who placed several auction bids and was charged multiple fees even before winning. They complained to me and BW, and were quickly refunded their money. When I set up a donation campaign this year, the "contribution to BW" amount defaulted to $20 (for a $250 donation). I opted not to run the campaign because I thought the $20 fee was high and could be problematic. Ideally it would be nice to have a fundraiser that encompasses auction items ad raffle items instead of having separate setups for each. I handle this by creating a web page with all items on our site.

Online Auction Platform was Great!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I only used BetterWorld for that one auction experience, but the experience was so positive, I would definitely use them again. The idea of helping fundraisers have the tools we need at an affordable price-point is really nice, especially for orgs as small as ours.

Pros

We didn't find anything we didn't like about the auction platform. It was so user-friendly that even I (not the most tech-savvy) could manage it with little assistance. And it looked great! It was great to be able to upload and arrange images, divide auction items by type, and receive clear info about bidding. When the auction ended, there was no chasing people down to get payment because all bidders had entered their card info and the charge was processed immediately.

Cons

We had a small issue that I assumed was my fault. I contacted BetterWorld and they determined it was something in their system they had not yet identified, and they actually thanked me for pointing it out so they could fix it. They were very responsive.

Easy and Low Cost

Reviewed 4 months ago

Very good, we are happy with the product.

Pros

We like that we can organize multiple events, donation campaigns and our gala without large expenses to our non-profit. We also like how user friendly and how much education there is for us to learn how to use the system. Very happy with our experience.

Cons

The lack of notifications when people buy tickets for ticketed events or donations. Would like to be notified right away.

BetterWorld is Better, period.

Reviewed 2 years ago

I absolutely love Betterworld. I was extremely hesitant at first and took a leap of faith. Their products and features exceed the competition and much more inexpensive.

Pros

The user friendly settings and price points.

Cons

There is nothing I can honestly think of.
