Fixed Percentage Pricing

If the free pricing structure doesn’t quite suit your needs, the fixed percentage pricing is a flexible alternative.

A Flexible Solution

The fixed percentage charge is 4.75%*.  This applies to all our fundraising solutions, including auctions.  You can choose to cover the costs and deduct from the amount raised by your fundraiser.  Or, you can pass the costs onto your fundraiser participants by adding an amount to each bid or donation.  The third option is to split the cost between you and your supporters.   For example, you may choose to cover 2% of the cost and pass the rest on via an amount added to bids and donations.

Why Chose a Fixed Percentage Platform?

If you have corporate sponsorship, you may prefer to use these funds to cover the platform costs.  Or you may simply prefer not to ask your supporters to participate in an opt-in feature.  Whatever your reasons, fixed pricing offers you the flexibility to structure the platform costs in a way that suits you.

*excludes Stripe charges and costs.

Trusted By Globally Loved Causes

For more than 10 years, the GalaBid fundraising platform has raised millions for charities and non-profits around the world. See what some recent clients have to say:

Ronald McDonald House Charities

We have used GalaBid at our events with +400 guests and +100 auction items. It has made the entire silent auction process much easier, less resource heavy, and ultimately increased our revenue.

Hilton Hotels

Excellent. The technology was seamless. The follow up was prompt. Overall I would really recommend this service for charity balls & other fundraising events.
Artist Aid Ukraine

Artist Aid Ukraine

We could not have been more impressed by the platform GalaBid gave us to raise money for work with the victims of the Ukrainian conflict. We were able to run a week-long auction of nearly 100 donated artworks and also a month-long sale at fixed price of over 250 pictures and sculptures. We have raised over £150,000 for the charities involved. We have experience of several on-line fundraising and auction sites - we will never look past GalaBid again.

Life Flight

We loved using GalaBid at our annual gala. It was a fun and interactive way for our guests to engage with all of our silent auction items without leaving their seats. This definitely added value and interest to our event!
