ZGIVE Pricing, Features, Reviews and Alternatives

ZGIVE product overview

What is ZGIVE?

In addition to supporting traditional nonprofit-led auctions, ZGIVE offers out-of-the-box themed auctions that nonprofits can use throughout the year, using risk-free consignment items. Ready-Auctions are designed to help you save time, simplify the auction planning process and eliminate the need to secure donation items.

Key benefits of using ZGIVE

Ready-Auctions™: In addition to supporting traditional nonprofit-led auctions, we have out-of-the-box themed auctions that nonprofits can use throughout the year, using risk-free consignment items.

For example, we offer jewelry-themed auctions, sports, gift baskets, etc. ZGIVE handles all of the auction programming and the nonprofit handles promoting and marketing the event to their audience. There is zero upfront cost for our platform, including no upfront item charges, so there is no financial risk to the nonprofit.

Ease-of-Use: The user interface is extremely modern and intuitive, which makes it easy for nonprofits to create an auction and simple for donors to bid on items.

Text Engagement: Our auction platform offers nonprofits the ability to communicate with their auction participants via SMS before, during and after the event. This is designed to help boost engagement, interest and donations.

Pricing: The Auction Pro package allows for unlimited auctions throughout the year with zero cost upfront – we just charge a 5% performance fee once the auction is over. For example, if a nonprofit raises $20K at an auction, we won’t charge them anything until after the auction is over, at which point we will charge $1K. This pricing model completely eliminates all financial risk for the nonprofit.

Pros
We did a silent auction and we had over 100 people registered to participate in the event, so we ran the event for a week's time. We reached our goal of $35K and we're super thrilled with ZGIVE.

Our event raised over $11,000 which was a huge success for our first time. And it was great to use ZGIVE to help us get to that amount.

Thank you ZGIVE so much for helping us make this event top notch. And I encourage anybody that is looking, to use ZGIVE for their auction.

Cons
The "Buy It Now" option confused a couple people and they clicked it by accident. Would be good if we could reverse that it needed.

Unfortunately, ZGive doesn't communicate with our current CRM (Results +).

Exceptional Digital Fundraising Platform

Reviewed 2 months ago

I used this product on behalf of our small, rural non-profit museum for the first time this month and I am thoroughly impressed and plan to be a loyal customer for many years to come. The whole experience and assistance offered by ZGive staff was stellar.

Pros

ZGive is an exceptional fundraising platform that works for a wide range of non-profits. ZGive only makes money when you make money so if you are a small organization without a robust operating budget, this is the perfect choice for you. The Customer Support is excellent and the software is user friendly and well-liked by donors.

Cons

I like the idea of product partners that I could use to add auction items to our event but both partners available--jewelry and trips--we too high priced for the community and surrounding areas that our museum is located in. I wish ZGive had product partners that provided lower cost auction item options.

Vendor response

Hello Lee, thank you for this review, we really appreciate it! As far as the risk-free items, starting Oct.1st we will also offer risk-free gift baskets and home decor in a very accessible price range to meet the needs of the smaller nonprofit audience base. Thank you for the feedback - we look forward to a successful partnership!

ZGIVE is Top Notch!

Reviewed 3 months ago

We just used ZGIVE for an online auction and I cannot stress how incredible it was. We raised a few thousand dollars from our event. It was just absolutely amazing. Thank you ZGIVE so much for helping us make this event top notch. And I encourage anybody that is looking, to use ZGIVE for their auction. We used the text messaging feature to reach out to all the people about the auction and over 90% of the people said that they used the text message they received to get into the auction, which made it easy for them. So once again, thank you ZGIVE and I look forward to seeing and doing more things with you.

Pros

The text to give feature is the best technical thing about this product. However, the customer service is what sells it. ZGIVE is with you from start to finish to make sure everything runs perfectly. If you have any question, whatsoever, they are there for you.

Cons

It would be really cool if we could use this as an emailing platform, like mailchimp, as well.

Vendor response

Hello Gregory, thank you so much for your review! So happy that you are enjoying the platform and seeing success. We appreciate your partnership and look forward to many more successful fundraising events!

Online Auction

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

"Last March we did a fundraising event with ZGIVE. We did a silent auction and we had over 100 people registered to participate in the event, so we ran the event for a week's time. We reached our goal of $35K and we're super thrilled with ZGIVE. The platform was easy to work with. It was very user-friendly, and we were very extremely successful. Thank you ZGIVE. ​ Jay Williams Executive Director, OC UNITED"

Cons

Buy now option would have been nice, option to bid again with in 30 sec after the end time would have been nice.

Vendor response

Hi Jay, thank you for your review and for your insights. We have a ZGIVE 2.0 upgrade launching in September that will offer new features that will make the user experience even more intuitive and easy to use. Thank you again, and we appreciate your partnership!

Easy to Use!

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

We recently used ZGIVE for our fundraising event for the Rotary Foundation. Our event was a hybrid event, so we wanted our members in person and at home to be able to bid on the same items, and that went great. Everyone was able to use their phone to view the auction and bid on items. We also had a unique thing at our event where we set up a wine and liquor pull which gave our guests an opportunity...

Cons

The "Buy It Now" option confused a couple people and they clicked it by accident. Would be good if we could reverse that it needed.

Vendor response

Hi Mandy, thank you for your review, we really appreciate it. And thank you for your honesty about the Buy It Now feature - we are launching our upgrade in September and have addressed that issue on the platform. Look forward to building our relationship with you helping your organization take fundraising to the next level!

Fundraising Made Easy

Reviewed 4 months ago

I have been very pleased with ZGive and the support I have received. We signed up during the pandemic and it really took a load off of my mind knowing that I had another way to connect with donors and raise money for my non-profit.

Pros

We love that we can have different campaigns set up and know at a glance what programs interest our donors.

Cons

Unfortunately, ZGive doesn't communicate with our current CRM (Results +). As we look to a new CRM product this will be very important.

Vendor response

Hello Nancy, thank you for your review, we really appreciate it! Excited that we can partner with you on unlimited fundraising campaigns throughout the year. Also, thank you for your kind words about the customer support you have received. We look forward to helping you raise more money for your organization and building a lasting partnership with you!
