Raffle Leaderboard

Running a raffle as part of your online auction campaign? Build the anticipation with our raffle leaderboard. Display the draw in real time and let the whole room watch the winners’ names appear on screen, prize by prize.

Auctioneer Led Auctions

GalaBid’s online auction platform also cleverly caters for live auctions run in person by an auctioneer. Display the live auction items with or without pre-bidding online and register winning bids and payments for live items.

Speedy Auction Checkout

GalaBid’s Checkout module is optimized for busy event check-out desks. Search by winning bidder name, auction item number, or auction item name to instantly see payment status. Quickly mark all or individual invoice items as dispatched and enjoy a smooth post auction wrap up.

Types of Fundraisers

GalaBid’s extensive auction platform is available to everyone, charities, non profit organizations and individuals alike. The free auction platform is also available for commercial auctions. With or without an associated event, GalaBid’s online auction platform is typically used to raise funds for charities, schools and religious organizations.

Free Auction Platform

How do we provide our auction platform free of charge? We provide online auctions completely free of charge to fundraisers in return for asking auction item winners to make a contribution to GalaBid when they pay for their auction items.

This contribution is entirely voluntary. Winners can change the amount of their contribution to any amount including zero.

Rest assured, If your winners don’t contribute towards GalaBid’s costs, your campaign will not be charged. Across the tens of thousands of auction campaigns we facilitate every year we receive enough contributions to continue to offer our platform free of charge.
