Raise more money at your next charity event with a fully-staffed, wireless auction from ibidmobile.net. Your guests will love our fun, fast-paced iPad, online, and mobile phone bidding system. Your staff will love how our professional team manages your auction before, during, and after your event.
Our iPad Valets roam your event, encouraging your guests to bid using our specially designed app. The iPads beautifully display your auction catalog in vivid color and our interactive technology keeps guests involved throughout your event.
Before your event, we help you get your auction catalog published online. With our free Catalog Genius app, you can easily organize lot descriptions, add pictures, make revisions, and add new lots anytime. Your dedicated auction manager will help you every step of the way with technical support and advice on pricing and marketing your items.
Start the bidding early with an online auction that continues right through your event. Your guests can also check-in online and bypass the registration desk. Automatic proxy bidding encourages bidders to set their maximum bids in advance. By the time your event begins, the auction will be well underway.
At the event, our registration team provides guests with bidder and table numbers and swipes their credit cards. Now they are ready to start bidding. During the reception, our friendly iPad Valets chat with your guests about the auction and help take their bids. At seated events, they work the tables during the meal service. Guests don't need any technical expertise. They don't even have to touch the iPads. But most of them will want to and we encourage them!
Top bids are posted instantly to every iPad, an electronic leader board, and your auction website. Outbid notices are sent automatically to mobile phones so guests can rebid anywhere, anytime.
Our auction system is specially designed to handle the fast-paced bidding at a live auction. We supply paddles at the tables for each guest and post the bids and pledges in real time to encourage participation and drive up the bidding.
With our instant closing, your auction can stay open longer to raise more money. The checkout desk opens immediately at the close of the auction, or guests can checkout from their smart phones. Unsold lots can be offered for sale at the event or online to maximize your revenue.
After your event we provide comprehensive reports, analysis, and bidding data to help identify potential donors and the best lots for next year's event.
We charge a flat fee for our service based on the number of guests. With ibidmobile.net, you never pay a commission. The base price is $3,750, which includes registration for up to 400 guests, plus $325 per iPad Valet. There is typically one iPad Valet for every 25 to 30 guests.
All required staffing, equipment, and software is included. Leader boards are displayed on your existing screens. Additional charges may apply based on the duration, configuration, or location of your event. Online-only auctions are available separately from $299 plus $5 per lot.
