Great Support and easy to use system

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience with TravelPledge was great. It was easy to set up and easy to use. The customer service was great too! They even got back to me on a questions that I had the weekend of my event. This is an amazing free online auction platform that also helps you collect some donations to add more money to your fundraising goal total.

Pros

It was easy to use and get set up. Plus the customer service was excellent.

Cons

I can't think of any at this time but if I had to pick I'd say that there really wasn't much that I did not like about it.

Very nice set up, nice customer service.

Pros

It was super easy to set up and nice trips

Cons

Just didn't get the response we hoped for. I posted on all social media platforms, emailed our supporters. It just didn't do well

It was great working with TravelPledge!

Reviewed a year ago

Fantastic. We plan to work with TravelPledge again on similar events.

Pros

TravelPledge's platform was quite user-friendly for our online silent auction. Uploading images and creating item descriptions was a simple and intuitive process, and TravelPledge's customer service team was readily available to help when needed.

Cons

The only issue we encountered was the time-consuming process of having to re-number items according to dollar amount value in the dashboard when new items were donated. What would have made this process much easier is if we could simply click on the item that needed to be re-ordered, and drag it to the proper new place.

Foundational Auction

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great customer service. Super simple. Glad to have experienced it.

Pros

It was easy to set up and activate. There weren't too many confusing settings that can possibly be overlooked or messed up.

Cons

I would liked to have received bid and payment alerts. Also, some financial reporting would be good. Creating categories across the entire site would be beneficial. It would allow TravelPledge customers to search for all items within the category regardless of who's auction they're in (e.g. live events, sporting events, hotels, etc.).

Silent Auction Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

We will definitely use Travel Pledge in the future. It was easy, quick, and did what it promised.

Pros

When you are stressed over many other details of a fundraiser, to find a software that not only was easy to use but offered travel packages that we could run and enhance our auction

Cons

The only con I encountered was uploading the pictures. Being a non-tech person presented the problem but I read the instructions and figured out that I had to resize the pictures. From then on it went very smoothly.

This was a great experience. I would definitely use this product again. It was easy, fun, and rewarding. Even though this is a small, quick auction, the excursions really added to the experience.

Pros

The website was easy to set up and intuitive. The customer service was exceptional.

Cons

It would’ve been nice to have a direct communication option.

TravelPledge Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

[SENSITIVE CONTENT] was incredibly helpful and easy to access via email or phone. He really helped my experience be fairly seamless and answered all my questions. Learning the backend was fairly easy; there are a few things I would change, but overall, I'd rate my experience with TravelPledge a solid 9/10.

Pros

For taking the silent auction online for the first time, this software was great for the basics. It was easy to understand and learn the backend. For being a free option, I felt like it hit all the marks.

Cons

The text/notification features would like more flexibility/ownership there as the admin. Wish we could receive an email notification each time a payment was made. I didn't realize there would be so much activity from others outside of our event, which was encouraging, but now I know to make a note about shipping items in the details.

Super tool for Non-profit Fundraising!!!

Reviewed 2 years ago

TravelPledge saved us time and extra work outside of regular duties in providing appealing auction packages for many different types of people.

Pros

TravelPledge is extremely user friendly and simplifies the auction process. Rather than going out and begging businesses for donations, this program provides options with transparency of the actual retail value and with how much is automatically donated to the non-profits themselves.

Cons

We had no cons in our initial experiences. It is maybe just a matter of some of our donors growing comfortable with online options.

Pros

It was extremely helpful to be able to have a couple of conversations before setting everything up so I knew how to proceed. The representatives I spoke with were informative and made it simple.

Cons

Great Option for Non-Profits

Reviewed 6 months ago

Very positive experience. Would like to see more local experiences available. Would like the ability to do golf tournaments and walk-a-thons in addition to silent auctions.

Pros

Ease of use and professional presentation were key factors. The ability to have offline payment processing was a key deciding factor. Winning bids paid within 48hrs of close of auction.

Cons

Would like to see more notifications and the ability to add another user who also receives same notifications.

Very pleasant and easy to use.

Pros

Ease of use is incredible. It was such a terrific tool for us to spread the word for our auction and give the ability for guests to bid without having to attend in person.

Cons

Unable to see upfront the contact information for registered bidders. Also to download directly afterwards. The team was great to send it to us after the fact.

Perfect for our needs

Reviewed a month ago

Over all I am very happy and I would choose to use WinningBidder again. We had plenty of our own auction items so we did not need any of the extra that they were offering. I don't think I would have liked the outcome as much if we had needed to use their items because the consignment is high and then they take a large percentage. For what we needed this site was perfect.

Pros

We have used a very cumbersome software in the past. Winning Bidder was very easy for my team and me to navigate. The cost is very minimal and it is very easy to use and understand.

Cons

I needed to add my live auction items to the site but I didn't want anyone to bid on them. There was no option for that so even though I made it clear that they were live auction items, I have to go through and void bids that were made during the silent auction. Also, I don't love that they have to go in and check out completely at the end. Most people think that their credit card will be charged automatically. It would be nice for them to receive a text message with a link to the invoice instead of just an email.

Great experience

Great. Will work with them again.

Pros

Using TravelPledge as our auction host was a huge improvement from years past. It was much easier to use than our other host site. Customer service was wonderful. I didn't ask for help but they reached out to with suggestions that were very helpful and thoughtful. Creating an auction item was very easy and fast.

Cons

I wanted to include hyperlinks to golf course facility websites and donor websites. I also wanted to add videos to item pages.

Everything You Need

Reviewed 4 months ago

All in all, I am very pleased with the WinningBidder platform. It is a price to performance champ! It has everything you need and nothing you don't. Sure, there could be more bells and whistles, however, in the end, I would opt for the simplicity, intuitiveness, and cost of the WinningBidder platform.

Pros

The platform was straightforward and easy to use. The item setup was intuitive as was the reporting. For our use, it had all the basic features that we required for our 20+ item online auction. Their partnership with TravelPledge was a bonus and added a level of excitement and helped round out our offerings.

Cons

The formatting of items and website look, and feel was limited and bare bones. There is no ability to add video or hyperlinks to sponsor websites. It would be nice to have a bit more options and/or ways to see trending or hot items, to draw more attention/bidding.

Perfect auction site!

Reviewed 10 months ago

This was our first online auction and we had no idea whether it would be a success. We were pleased with how easy it was to share the link with our audience and how easy it was for them to use it. We will definitely use it again.

Pros

It was extremely easy to use from setting up the auction items to the registration. We didn't receive a single query about registering or bidding. The reports were also very helpful in managing our auction. We will definitely use it again.

Cons

We had some videos about our items that we would have liked to be able to embed in the descriptions but that wasn't possible. It would also have been nice to be able to label the photos to explain what they were.

Silent Auction Success

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent

Pros

I work for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and used TravellPledge to put on a silent auction. First, this product being free for Non-Profits was huge, I was trying to raise money to send coaches and athletes to camp and this product made that possible. The software was so easy to use and had so many aids to help. They partner with some pretty impressive companies that donate for auctions so that you can use them as you try to raise money. Most of these I would have had no chance at procuring but TravelPledge made it easy to use these and helped in reaching my goals. Also there were some questions I had and their team answered so quickly and helped me make sure the experience was awesome.

Cons

I wish there was a way to customize it a little more, maybe just change the background color and make it more appealing visually.

Winning Bidder Makes Me Feel Like A Winner

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall my experience was very positive and if I were to run another fundraiser via online auction I would consider using this platform again.

Pros

I liked how accessible this was and very user friendly.

Cons

What I liked least was that the view of the bidding page from the admin perspective and the buyer perspective were different. I liked the graphics and set up from the admin perspective, but they seemed to take a hit when it came to what the buyers saw.

Folds of Honor at Stoney Point

Reviewed 2 years ago

Once we straighten out the problem of establishing the account and having Travel Pledge to verify my checking account, no problems. They need to make it easier to set up the account.

Pros

Easy to place bids. Easy to add or subtract items.

Cons

Very difficult to set up the account. I was originally told that the account was set up and I had starting the LIVE AUCTION only to find that my authorization and account set up had not been approved and was not set up. Had to get my daughter (I am terrible with computers) to straighten everything out. Took more than 8 hours and several phone calls to resolve this problem/
