Whether you’re conducting an electronic auction with mobile bidding or a traditional silent auction with paper bid sheets, ReadySetAuction’s efficient check-in process means your guests can be off and bidding quickly. There’s no limit to the number of computers you set up at Check-in to handle your guest traffic. In fact, since there’s no software to install, many volunteers simply bring their own.
For an electronic auction, if a guest has not pre-registered for mobile bidding, the system will send him an eBidder registration email as part of check in. He can then complete his registration from his smartphone or at a Shared Bidding Station.
Eliminate checkout altogether by capturing your guests’ credit card information at check-in.
We partner with industry leading merchant processors to provide a secure fully PCI-DSS-compliant credit card processing solution for your event.
During your event, from as many computers as you like, you and your committee can quickly record winning bids and purchases from your traditional (paper bid sheet) silent auction, live auction, fund-a-need special appeal, raffle ticket sales, dessert dash, drink tickets etc.
With the click of a button, print consolidated invoices for all your guests. Each invoice includes everything the guest has won or purchased at the event — including items from the mobile auction, traditional silent auction, and live auction. Plus, it lists whether his credit card is on file and the payment options available to him.
Those guests who provided their credit card information at Check-in can simply gather their winnings and leave. No waiting in line to pay. Then after the event, you and your committee can complete their checkouts, at which time the merchant processor will charge their cards.
Any guest — including those who won items during the mobile auction — can check out face-to-face and pay by cash, check or credit card.
Mobile bidders also have the option to self-checkout and pay from their own smartphones.
Whether the guest checks out in person or self-checks out, ReadySetAuction automatically and immediately emails him a receipt. The receipt includes your organization’s tax ID and lists each item won and purchased, its price, and its value. You can also print the receipt on the spot if the guest prefers a hard copy.
