We used GalaBid for the first time in 2018 for a gala ball and found it so intuitive and easy to use, even for the most technology challenged! The support and training that stands alongside the system is also second to none and made administering the back end of the system very straight forward. We had guests who commented on how easy the system was to use from a bidding perspective, and that they loved seeing the live leader board on the big screen. The live leaderboard also had a huge impact on the total funds raised on the night. I would definitely recommend GalaBid to anyone looking for an auction platform.

Using GalaBid not only increased our overall income, it also improved our donor relationships due to the huge exposure they received online. Bidders enjoyed the competitive nature of the bidding thanks to the onscreen display of current bids. This all supported an excellent outcome for Gut Cancer Foundation. A huge thank you to GalaBid.

Easy, fun and effective! Using Galabid at our Annual Gala Dinner for the last two years has been great. It has helped elevate our event and makes the silent auction bidding process so easy and fun for our guests. It was easy to set up, and Cathy was fantastic. Always available for support whenever we needed her. We love GalaBid!

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!

GalaBid was amazing! It was user friendly for our guests and created a fantastic atmosphere on the evening because everyone was able to see who was outbidding who and, in particular, during the live pledge when we could see the thermometer rise to above our target. The Admin Panel was so user friendly after a couple of hours of training, and Cathy was a fantastic support helping every step of the way which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend GalaBid to anyone.

We used GalaBid for the first time this year and found it a great system. It was simple to set up and very easy for guests to use. The donation and raffle features streamlined processes on the night, and the online payment option made the checkout process much easier for guests who won items, with no queues at the end of the night. The training sessions and tools given prior to the event means everything is broken down and easy to operate on the night. Cathy and the GalaBid team do a great job of checking everything is set up correctly and are able to answer any questions throughout the process. We highly recommend GalaBid and will be using it again ourselves next year.

The Grocery Charity Ball Trust

We used GalaBid at our major fundraising event, Harcourts Dancing with the Stars, with an audience of 2000 people. Our silent auction had been done on paper prior to that and we found our revenue increased significantly and it was easier to attract sponsors to donate items with an online presence. It was great to have the option of a live feed and we used it to encourage bids in the last minutes. It also simplified the payment system!

Rotorua Community Hospice

GalaBid is a great addition to our annual black-tie fundraising gala and really enhances the silent auction experience. It allows guests to compete against each other without leaving their seats and be instantly notified when they are outbid, all while looking slick and professional. The system is easy to use for both admin and guests, and Cathy and the GalaBid team are very helpful with setup and the other processes involved. We highly recommend GalaBid!

GalaBid was fantastic! They took all of the stress and workload out of hosting and running an auction. The platform is easy to use for both the organiser and the bidder. It’s is an extremely professionally presented platform. I would never do an auction any other way again.

We used GalaBid for the first time for our 2016 Charity Regatta and it significantly increased our event’s exposure and amount raised. The platform is extremely user-friendly and Cathy provided amazing instruction and support. We have already engaged GalaBid for this year’s event and I would 100% recommend GalaBid to anyone who wants to increase the success of their fundraising event!

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.

The GalaBid system was second to none and exceeded all our expectations. We had over 400 people attend the auction with a lot of corporate identities who regularly support such community events. Many commented to me personally about the GalaBid system and wanted to know the details because it was the best system they had seen. The account manager Cathy was outstanding and nothing was a problem for her. The set up was explained over the phone and was simple to do. The money raised exceeded our expectations by a long way and we have no doubt GalaBid had a significant impact on that result. We would highly recommend using GalaBid for any similar events.

Rotorua Police Welfare Fund and Charitable Trust

The staff were always extremely professional and having support staff on the night gave us a huge advantage. Using the platform meant we processed payments in half the time compared to the previous year. Throughout the whole process the team at Galabid were instrumental to our fundraising success.

We had a wonderful experience with the whole Galabid team, the platform and the result we achieved with the online auction. We can strongly recommend to give Galabid a go, it's very easy to set up and use, the team at Galabid is extremely helpful and we'll definitely never return to traditional paper silent auction. Thanks to the team at Galabid and talk to you next time!

Taronga Zoo’s Zoofari 100 event was our most successful fundraising gala to date. We worked with GalaBid to arrange an online auction, lucky key and raffle. Customer service from Jasmine, Steve, Cecilia and Jordan in the lead up and at the live event was exceptional and really assisted in progressing the event smoothly. As anyone who has run a charity event would know, one of the most time-consuming aspects is arranging, collating and preparing prizes so it was invaluable to us that this process was as intuitive and well-supported by the team.

The auction exceeded my highest expectations and more than doubled last year's take. We can’t speak highly enough of Henry's efforts, charm and professionalism. In my dealing with him up to the event he was terrific with great update speeds and made it clear that nothing was too much trouble. Without Henry’s presence and your system our take would have been considerably less. I'd recommend your company and it’s services to anybody.

This auction would not have been the success it was without Alice's support. We had a very short time lead to deliver this app, I'd never done one nor a fundraiser before so Alice's guidance, hints and tips and energy on the day made a massive difference.

Our allocated event manager was fabulous to work with and truly amazing with all the guests on the night. Many of the guests were new to the system but Alice put any fears they had at ease by assisting them with the registration and bidding process. She was a huge part of why the event was so successful.

Thank you so much for running the silent auction at the mothers2mothers Midsummer Soirée last night. The Galabid platform worked so well and you were an absolute delight to work with, and so crucial on the night in helping our guests. The evening was a brilliant success and we made lots of new friends for mothers2mothers, so we’re in a very happy place.

I just wanted to take this moment to say a huge thank you for all Galabid's help in making Buttle's Chances for Children charity auction a success. In particular I would like to single out Henry Hall who helped us immensely. We had last minute amends that was actioned immediately and helped link up the site with our AV team. All done very proactively. Also I can not thank you enough for your after care as we help each successful bidder redeem their prize.

I worked with Dee and the Galabid team in 2017 on a dinner for 850 guests at the Battersea Evolution. It was a pleasure to work with them. The service they provided in the run up to the event and on the night was so personal and genuine. Nothing was too much trouble and any queries were resolved very quickly and professionally. I got the sense that our success was as important to the team as it was to us and the charity. The night was successful raising over £46,000

I am writing to thank you so so much for all your help on Saturday evening. I cannot thank you enough for your time, patience and all the help you provided on the night. I do not know how we would have managed without you your support was fantastic. The service that we received from Galabid was absolutely second to none and I would have no doubt in my mind to recommend you to other people (well we have already) It is not often you work with people who go well beyond the call of duty. Thanking you once again.

We were all extremely happy with the Galabid site, particularly the technical help that Alice gave to Molly in the site set up, and in supporting us on the night and the aftermath. I was delighted with the final outcome considering that we decided to go with it even though it was so very close to the event. Somehow it did enhance the evening, I was concerned that the additional fundraising would detract from the event or that the older audience would not be able to cope with the technology but surprisingly they managed to work it out!

The GalaBid team were very supportive with our fundraising efforts, were always there to help regardless the level of question. They made a huge difference on the night of our event, not only to the enjoyment of our guests, and the warm and empathetic cooperation with our staff but in the raising of auction income on the night – looking forward to working with you again in future!

Thank you GalaBid for all your help & support on the run up to and on the evening for our Charity Ball, having you there on the evening meant that for the first time we could actually relax and enjoy the evening, giving us more time to chat to our guests and sponsors, no stressing about who’s bought what, offering on the spot payment not only helped on the evening but meant less work after the event, and having a profit figure earlier than we have previously managed led to a quicker press release and sponsor notification which was great! We very much look forward to working with you again at our next event in 2018

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your assistance and support in our auction this year! We really appreciate the rate that you gave us and all the technical support. Trying to manage over 100 artworks is a really big job from our end but Galabid certainly made managing them online very easy. We did not have one person contact us to ask for help registering or bidding. Capturing all the bidders data made the follow up (particularly the shipping) so much easier for us as well. The only issue (which is not the fault of Galabid) is some of the bidders failing to go through with their purchase – so we really appreciated being able to run the second chance auction! This enabled us to raise an extra $7606 and made sure every artwork sold – which we were really pleased with! Overall we raised over $110,000 for our projects in Ethiopia which is phenomenal given, School’s A Gift, is a small volunteer run organisation. Thanks again – have a great Christmas and I’ll be back in touch in 2018 for the next Peace of Art!

Henry Hall and the GalaBid team were a pleasure to work with. The entire process from start to finish was smooth and easy. A very impressive outfit for sure.

We used a mobile bidding platform for the first time this year for our annual gala dinner. We were a little nervous about how this would go as the fundraising aspect of the gala dinner is so critical. We couldn’t have been happier with GalaBid. From beginning to end they were extremely helpful, professional and responsive. The platform was easy to set up and if we had any questions, someone was always available to assist us. I couldn’t recommend GalaBid highly enough.

St Finbar‘s Primary School was looking at ways to fundraise for school improvements without continually tapping into our own small school community. We had held small live auctions at school functions before, and items were often sold well below market value due to the small pool of people wanting to bid on them. The idea of taking an auction online meant that members of our school community could participate in the auction, but it also meant anyone could participate. Our market was endless A decision was made to hold an art auction online, with an aim to raise $5,000-10,000 after expenses. Some savvy marketing on social media, particularly Instagram saw the auction accumulate a strong following, and we were delighted with the result. $18,500 was raised, exceeding our expectations. The support from GalaBid was instrumental. The straight forward user interface made it easy for bidders to participate. The SMS function was a great way to cummunicate with registered bidders, successful bidders and also invite unsuccessful bidders to make a donation. Adding the Donation option saw us raise over $1,000 that we would have otherwise not raised. An Account Manager that can be contacted by phone was invaluable and something that sets GalaBid apart. We felt we always had excellent support – no question was too big or too small. This was all supported by a simple landing page we set up, giving our auction and polished, professional and enticing look. We’ll be back!

St Finbar's Primary School

I have found Galabid to be an extremely reliable service. It is very easy to use; even guests who feel uncomfortable with technology have found it very easy to navigate at an event. The staff and account manager’s are always helpful and available. Thank you!

St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School

AU
The night was a great success, due largely to the silent and live auctions. The Galabid silent auction platform, was easy to use and provided a very seamless process for our guests from bidding through to payment and pickup. Many of our guests have not used the online system before and were initially sceptical, but I am pleased to advise they have now been converted. I would like to thank Ty, for his patience and guidance in establishing the site and ensuring we, as an organisation, made the most of our fundraising opportunity. You were always available for queries and nothing was too much trouble. I have recommended Galabid to everyone I have spoken to about implementing an online auction platform and will be in contact for our future events.

Western Australia Olympic Committee

AU
We have used GalaBid for a number of functions over the last few years. Guests enjoyed bidding against each other and we raised more money than in previous years when we had paper forms. The account management teams and staff on the night are a delight to work with – always happy to answer any questions whether big or small. If you are looking for a system to take the hassle out of fundraising then this is for you. The system is self-explanatory and very easy to use.

Westpac Foundation

AU
Our items went for record amounts this year and we raised more than any other year. I definitely put this down to the GalaBid system and the ability to have people bidding in high volumes in the last 10 minutes instead of only 1 or 2 people at the table being able to bid at any one time. I have all positive reports on this product and was very impressed with the ease of use and the professionalism of the staff at GalaBid.

HeartKids NSW

AU
Henry was great from start to finish. He was professional and efficient at the event itself and was always available when we needed help or advice in the lead up to the live auction – we would definitely use Galabid again for any future charity auctions.

RSPCA

GB
We would have no hesitation using GalaBid again and recommending them to any charity looking for an online bidding system. People were much more likely to bid. The fact that they were given notifications when they were outbid was really clever. People remarked several times that they had spent more than they intended because they got competitive with someone who was bidding against them. The ability to send out prizes to attendees in advance was particularly useful. Not only could people start bidding before the event, it also meant that people who didn’t make it to the event could also bid. Everyone was talking about how fantastic it was and how handy it was to be able to bid in advance.

Children's Medical Research Institute

AU
GalaBid enabled us to reach far more people than were attending the lunch. By having an online platform, Alumni, past parents & friends were able to purchase raffle tickets and also bid on silent auction items. We had raised $60,000 before the lunch had even started. Also, being able to add prizes into the silent auction right up until the time of the event is great as we were getting prizes until the night before. This definitely helped maximise the return from the event.

Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College

AU
We are so so pleased with how everything went with GalaBid and all the feedback we have received has been overwhelmingly positive! I would certainly recommend GalaBid to anyone organising an auction. We ended up making $50K on the silent auction and about $22K on the live – last year we made a combined total of $28K so obviously we are stoked with this outcome! Your staff have been a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for your generosity and support of Fight on the Beaches – we will certainly be recommending GalaBid at any opportunity!

FIGHT ON THE BEACHES

AU
GalaBid enabled many more guests and even those not attending our ball to bid on the auction, which resulted in a profit of at least $40,000 more than previous years. Guests having their own handset and receiving a text message when they were outbid were options not previously available as well as being able to add the full prize description and photo to the online system. Items were much easier to find using the categories option, so guests didn’t have to wade through the entire catalogue to find what they were interested in. Our guests enjoyed using the platform with many getting in early with registration and bids and setting up their favourites prior to the night. We are thrilled with our overall result! GalaBid was around 40% of the price of the previous system we were using with a 30% increase in profit from our auction items.

Giant Steps

AU
GalaBid allowed us to silently auction off prizes on the night, creating an exciting and interactive atmosphere for our guests. Also in using GalaBid, we were able to kick off our fundraising efforts prior to the evening by opening our auction several weeks before the event. Undoubtedly, this contributed to the success of our evening and allowed us to raise funds for this important new Fertility Research Centre.

The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation

AU
Second year in the row and absolutely delighted to be working with GalaBid. From contract set up to post event report, extremely professional and easy to work with. No hesitation in recommending GalaBid! I cannot thank you enough for the support I got from all of you: The platform is easy to register to, intuitive and injects a sense of competition amongst bidders as they receive a text message when they have been outbid. The branded console was displayed during breaks to, again, increase bids. Excellent customer support was also provided pre, during and post event. Looking forward to be working with you again.

CREATE Foundation

AU
We have used GalaBid for two years now as the bidding system for our major fundraiser of the year – our Gala Auction. The process from start to finish is simple to use. From the set up with upload of items and logos, to ease of use on the night and a seamless payment and collection process.
I would not hesitate in recommending the system to any organisation that wants to get great silent auction results with an affordable, uncomplicated system.

Brisbane Lions

AU
Because the night’s so busy it was great comfort for me to know that the GalaBid team were there and looking after the silent auction. Their support is fantastic and the preparation before the event was a breeze. We opened our auction one week before the event and it meant the bidding was well underway before the event began and guests were familiar with the system by the time they arrived. Giving people the option to pay for the items they won directly on their phone at the end of the silent auction meant our checkout desk was really quiet. More than half of our winners made use of this service.

Children's Cancer Institute

AU
We raised 50% of our silent auction revenue before the night started by using the GalaBid platform. Guests were excited that they could sign on prior to the event and scroll through the 100 items that we had on offer. This allowed them to know exactly what they were interested in bidding on before they walked into the room. It also gave them the opportunity to look at our pledge opportunities and the live auction items. Launching beforehand also allows people that are unable to attend the event still be a part of supporting School for Life through a pledge or auction item.

School for Life

AU
Just wanted to personally say a huge thanks to you for all your help in the lead up of POSH. We were a new team this year and down on resources, so really grateful for your wonderful support and guidance that made the POSH auction another success this year. The team on the night were fantastic also. Liam, Luis and Cecilia were an outstanding team together, extremely responsive and always happy to help our volunteers and guests.

Cancer Council NSW

AU
Our auction was a terrific success and easy to run because the infrastructure was already in place. Bidders fedback that they found it very easy to register and bid and they particularly liked the text notifications regarding the status of their bid/s. We also had a live auction at our lunch and the GalaBid site gave us an opportunity to market those big ticket items well in advance of the auction. The live auction was a great success on the day and included phone bidders who had learnt of the items via GalaBid.

Cranbrook Rugby Club

GB
We used GalaBid last week and it helped us raise in excess of $1.25 million which was over and above our target. The checkout was made very easy for guests and the pre-event bidding helped us increase bids and ultimately revenue. Looking forward to using GalaBid again.

ASX Thomson Reuters Foundation

AU
GalaBid created a dynamic edge to a long running event that had severely under performed in the silent auction bidding result in the past. We were able to broaden our reach beyond the room on the night and create a great buzz and excited marketing feel for the event. From the initial hesitation from older committee members and guests I think we have them hooked!

Cromehurst School

AU
Pretty much from the word go I knew GalaBid was the right solution: it was very easy to use and I really liked the user friendly interface and the fact you could load your own pictures and item info. Using mobile phones is such a great way of doing things as it provides a whole event solution Also having a fully electronic catalogue meant we could do away with our display tables as space was tight- this meant we fitted another 100 attendees as we didn’t need auction tables. But the main auction features were what really made a difference: not just silent auction but also being able to advertise live auction items ahead of the live event and communicate our bursary programme through the donation features included in the catalogue which helped to secure us extra fundraising revenue. We also had quite a lot of ‘home bidders’ i.e. people who couldn’t actually make it to the live event. In fact 30% of our bids were made by non-attendees. It also meant on the night we can concentrate on fun rather than just fundraising – the technology did it all by itself.

St Ignatius College Riverview

Thank you so much for your all your help and support in making our Fundraising dinner on Friday night such a success both financially and socially. All our guests had a great time and really pick up on the GalaBid system quickly and had a great time biding throughout the night – many people commented on how easy it was to use.

This is the first time Bond has used electronic bidding at our annual Indigenous Gala. We had over 550 people at our event and the GalaBid system was fantastic. The system is so user friendly from setting up the Silent Auction to live bidding and then completion of the event. The support I had from Bree our Account Manager was fantastic and nothing was too much for her. Without a doubt we will be using GalaBid again next year.

Bond University

This is my first experience running a silent auction and the decision to use GalaBid sensational. GalaBid is intuitive and super easy to use both from an admin perspective and a user perspective. GalaBid is a highly professional yet simple (to use) platform and the feedback from volunteers and users was exceptional! The support I received from the team at GalaBid was amazing, no question was to small. I would highly recommend GalaBid to anyone running a silent auction.

We recently held our most successful event ever. It also happened to be the first time we had used Galabid and we don’t think this was a coincidence! The thought of going back to silent auction sheets and hard copy brochures now seems archaic! GalaBid helped make our event a HUGE success.

GalaBid were an incredible addition to the fundraising efforts of our ladies lunch this year. Throughout the entire process the staff at GalaBid were friendly, professional and more than happy to answer all of our questions. The platform itself was incredibly easy to use and our team had a lot of fun creating our Silent Auction on such an interactive platform. The feedback from guests on the day was overwhelmingly positive and we can’t wait to work with GalaBid again on other events in the future.

I think in total with the raffle, silent auction and live auction we raised $290,000 – which is 3 times the amount we thought we would get so everyone is over the moon.
The system ran very well and Luis was wonderful onsite on the day. We were able to get over 300 people registered for the auction, and it was really easy to do this with guests texting and then receiving the link. It was great to be able to see all the bids, and the leader board worked really well in encouraging people to bid.

The Event Pty

We used Galabid for the first time this year and were very happy with entire process from start to finish. The system was easy to use both from a host and a user perspective and the layout was easy to view and user friendly. Galabid gave us the opportunity to try a new way of increasing our fundraising efforts in a simple and hassle free manner. Thank you to Jasmine and Andrew who were very accommodating, helpful and lovely to work with.

GalaBid took the hard work out of building and promoting our silent auction and added a whole new layer of fun for those participating in it. Not only did we hit our target before the event started, we ended the day 56 per cent ahead of what we’d netted the previous year.

Thank you so much GalaBid for your incredible ease of use site. This is our 4th year we have used GalaBid to aid in our fundraising for Tour de Cure and every year it just gets better and better.
Your staff have been very supportive throughout this process.
Our guests and users of the site are most impressed with the ease of use and I am just happy that the net can be cast far and wide by using your site.

I used GalaBid for a charity event I was putting on. The service from start to finish was first class and our account manger was available whenever we needed her. Will definitely use GalaBid again in the future. A great program!

The payment integration with our bank was seamless and it allowed guests to make their payment at the end of the auction, using the phone!

Your advice about opening the auction early was spot on as we made 36% of the final auction takings the day before the event. We had many extremely positive comments about the online auction. It proved to be great entertainment!

It was easy for people of all ages to use, allowed those who could not make it on the night to participate and it ensured we had reached over 50% of our target before the Auction Night started.

Guests loved the interactive system, and the companies that donated items were happy to have their websites only a few clicks away from the items they had donated.

Every person young and old used the system and we certainly more than doubled the amount raised for our cause, far outreaching our target.
