Everything You Need to Run Your Next Auction
Real-Time Bidding

Boost engagement and excitement

Managing bids on web-based forms or paper auction sheets puts the burden on your donors and forces them to check on other bids when they should be having fun! With real-time bidding, supporters can:

  • Build a watch list of favorite items, set maximum bids, swipe to bid, or bid via QR code
  • Opt in to real-time push notifications that tell them when they're outbid
  • Manage bids, one-time purchases, and donations in one place
Guest Registration

Simplify signup and check-in

Confusing registration and check-in are things of the past! With the auction platform, it's easy for supporters to register for your event and check in. Make a great first impression with a registration system that lets guests:

  • Register for your event, check in, and make bids all in one app — no separate software required
  • Set up a preferred payment method ahead of time
  • Get started quickly with an interactive tour of the app and simple-in app or QR code check-in

Supporters can easily make an impact at your event

You won't need extra tools to incorporate a fund-a-need option during your auction. You can easily share a need with your supporters so they can make a donation within the app! Use the app to:

  • Set up fund-a-need donation options for things like scholarships or sponsorships
  • Run a live fund-a-need appeal with in-app and offline bidding
  • Have fund-a-need donations appear on supporters' running tabs

Streamlined Check-In, Bidding, and Checkout

  • Check in to the event on the app instead of waiting in line
  • Create a payment method on the app, which is faster (and safer) for everyone

Make Auctions More Fun for Donors and Staff Alike

Easy Item Setup

Create new items, add descriptions, and categorize them for easy browsing. You can even import all items from a spreadsheet!

Simple Checkout

Take the stress out of checkout! Donors pay on the app, so you can dedicate more staff to retrieving items and thanking donors.

On- and Offsite Bids

Busy donors will love being able to bid on their favorite items in real time — even if they can't attend the actual event.

Set Up Multiple Auctions

Manage large groups of items by setting up multiple auctions. Different lots of items can go up for bid at different times.

Time-Saving Features

Automatic personalized bid numbers and unique QR codes make it easy for your donors and staff to manage payments.

You don't have to learn the system alone! Our team of experts offers unlimited one-on-one training for you and your staff.

“We had our event on Saturday, October 12th, and by Monday I was able to confirm and finalize all of the Qgiv auction data that was exported to Bloomerang. Last year’s event was on November 3rd, and it took weeks to wrap up! Because the reporting and acknowledgement processes with our previous provider were so cumbersome, it was a nightmare going into our year-end giving.

Because we were able to finalize everything with Qgiv so quickly and get acknowledgements out to donors before year-end giving appeals, we feel good about moving forward with November 13th as our event date next year. Qgiv has made it possible to move our event to a later time that makes more sense for our constituents. To have everything done so quickly and so seamlessly before we go into our year-end campaign is exactly what we wanted.”
