Latest Release of ReadySetAuction Adds Most-Requested Features

Just in time for fall fundraisers, we’ve added some exciting new features to ReadySetAuction! Two of our most-requested features — integrating bidder and donor accounts, and making email address optional for both — lead the list. We’ve also made improvements to invoices, receipts, reports, and more. Read on for all the details…

Introducing ReadySetAuction Showcase (beta)

With ReadySetAuction Showcase, you can display a customized slideshow of your items and sponsors on displays placed throughout your event venue. All you need is one or more devices that can run a web browser. You can even project your Showcase onto a large screen if you have the right equipment.

Online Procurement, Donations, Sponsorships, Public Catalog, and More in the Latest ReadySetAuction

As summer begins to heat up and many of you start making plans for your fall fundraisers, we’re pleased to announce a set of new features that add self-checkout for all bidders and make your event website a more powerful fundraising tool than ever. Since you might prefer to be outside enjoying the nice weather rather than staring at a screen, I’ll keep this short and sweet…

Online Ticket Sales & Event Website Improvements, New in ReadySetAuction

Just in time for the spring auction season, you can now sell admission tickets to your auction online through your ReadySetAuction event website! This new feature is fully integrated with the ReadySetAuction Control Center’s guest management tools, is easy to set up and easy to use, and it seamlessly automates the time-consuming tedium of RSVP tracking.

Along with online ticket sales, our newest release gives your organization an improved and customizable auction website that you can brand with your own logo/artwork and welcome message. Read on for an overview of the highlights.

RSVP Tracking, Table Assignments & More Make Guest Management Easy

We’ve been busy here at ReadySetAuction leading up to the new year. Over the last six weeks we not only re-launched our marketing site — what do you think of the new look? — but we’ve also added a bevy of valuable features to our new ReadySetAuction platform to boost the productivity and efficiency of your committee. These features include tracking of RSVPs, meals, table assignments, and sponsors’ guests; the ability to designate a donor as a business vs. a person (or persons); and an array of new reports. Read on for more details.

ReadySetAuction Live Adds Donor & Donation Tracking

I’m excited to announce the latest release of ReadySetAuction Live, as always, a free upgrade for our existing customers. Our amazing code smiths have been working around the clock to bring you some awesome new features. ReadySetAuction Live now keeps track of all your donations, including: items and services that you can auction off, in-kind gifts, consignment items, defined sponsorships, and monetary donations.

Is Mobile Bidding A Good Fit For Your Silent Auction?

One of the newest trends at charity auctions is mobile bidding — using smartphones, tablets, laptops, or other mobile devices to browse the catalog and make bids, purchases, and donations. Mobile bidding can add excitement, quicken the pace, and raise the profitability of a silent auction.

But is mobile bidding the right direction for your event and a good fit for your supporters? Here are some things to consider.

The '80s Style Prom Theme

Transport your guests back to the era of big hairdos, puffy dresses, and Madonna by throwing an ’80s Prom-themed auction! There is nothing quite like reliving these, er, glory days (or experiencing them for the first time!). So break out your dancing shoes and be prepared to “bust a move!”

New in RSALive: Flexible Bidder Registration & More Printed Auction Materials

We’ve just released the latest update to ReadySetAuction Live, right on schedule!

The emphasis of this release was threefold: make it even easier for your eBidders to become registered, streamline eBidder registration for walk-ins, and provide a full array of printed materials for those of you holding a traditional — as opposed to an electronic — auction.

ReadySetAuction Live Launches!

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we announce the launch of our new mobile bidding service — ReadySetAuction Live™! Read our press release.
