What users say

This is an amazing free online auction platform that also helps you collect some donations to add more money to your fundraising goal total.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A great option for nonprofits!

Reviewed a year ago

This software is super user friendly while offering features that would cost additionally elsewhere. It streamlines the entire auction process

Pros

The ease of use, as well as the trip options. Not having a middle man involved for the trips and items Travel Pledge offers compared to other auction software saves time and stress!

Cons

After using this software twice now, I truly can't think of any cons

Winning with WinningBidder.com

Reviewed 9 months ago

As a not for profit organization, we were trying to raise funds outside of our organization and offer products to the public for bid. WinningBidder.com did just that and a very affordable cost. Will recommend to other organizations and will continue to use.

Pros

Easy set-up and continuous monitoring of bidding process. Trustworthy Check- out & payment process for winning bidder.

Cons

nothing. All aspects worked as advertised.

Top Shelf Auction Platform

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall, a fantastic experience with WinningBidder who will now be one of our main platforms for fund raising.

Pros

We've worked in the charity auction space for almost six years across many platforms and TravelPledge is definitely among the top. Its easy to use, understand and process campaigns on. Among the more important benefits to non-profits is the low commission as we are allowed to raise nearly 15 % more of the funds our auctions garner.

Cons

The only room for improvement as far as I can tell is; It would be great to have more custom graphics on the auction page to make each campaign look unique and great. To be able to run auctions while simultaneously hosting live auctions withthe Travel Pledge packages.

Without TravelPledge We have no Silent Auction

Reviewed 2 years ago

Travel Pledge allowed us to include a silent auction for our annual poker tournament when we would not have been able to have one without them due to lack of inventory and time.

Pros

Library of additional Items for bid. Easy set up

Cons

Wish there were more low to medium priced items in the library
