Thank you for considering BiddingOwl. Little did I know that when I started as the auction chair for a local charity years ago, I would end up helping thousands of other non-profits worldwide.
It has been quite a journey. BiddingOwl started as a necessity. Collecting items, guiding volunteers, organizing the event, and holding the auction was tedious and stressful.
The idea to find a better solution was born. Other platforms were unaffordable for our small cause. So we created our own software.
Today, we have hundreds of thousands of happy bidders and auction managers. We are proud to support you with exceptional customer service. Our platform is intuitive and provides you with all the right tools.
I welcome you to give BiddingOwl a try. We are here to help and support you.
We believe in old fashion business standards. We never do anything that we personally don't stand for. For example, nothing is worse than waiting on hold to talk to a customer service rep. Even worse if there is no phone support whatsoever. At BiddingOwl, we still pick up the phone. It's amazing how many customers call and say: "Wow, I didn't expect to talk to a real person!"
"Your customer service goes above and beyond, and I appreciate that!" - Kelly
"We want to thank you one more time for helping 'Random Act of Kindness' through our 1st online auction. It was a success!" - Martha
"BiddingOwl is awesome! I love this service. You are all amazing!" - Dawne

"On behalf of the board, staff, and pets-in-waiting at Humane Society, I want to thank you for your outstanding platform and support throughout this process. This was our first-ever online auction, and you made it painless! Not an easy task, and you are to be congratulated for your superior products and service. Please do not hesitate to add us to your happy and satisfied customers list. Seriously...you all are the absolute best!”
"Customer service was THE BEST!!! No matter how often I called with nit-picky questions, they were friendly and patient. They always had an answer when I screwed something up. I love that they can test the site to ensure everything works properly before going "live." User friendly, and the fact that you had a live body to talk to if you had questions. User defaults made the process fast. We chose BiddingOwl because of the access to a telephone number and price.”
"Bidding Owl has revolutionized the way that our non-profit organization can fundraise! Previously we were only able to reach people at in-person events, and with the ease of use, registration process, and ease of sharing to the world, we have raised 20 times as much money. It's really astounding. The best part has truly been the customer service! Very helpful to walk through all the set-up steps. They've also been quick to help my bidders and me when we needed help. A+++++”
"This is absolutely wonderful. The layout is so easy on the eyes. Other online auction sites layout the items in a messy or confusing way. Technology is not a strong suit for me; I have had to call the help desk only 3 times in the last 18 months. Jo'Anne is wonderful, patient, knowledgeable, and kind. At first, I was hesitant to use a site that charges a fee. But, I soon realized that the nominal fee was worth it. I also love that I can reach wider audiences with an online auction.”
"Everything about BiddingOwl is top-notch and professional. Each time I use the system for an annual auction fundraiser, I am more and more pleased with this software. The system is user-friendly, and it works like a charm! I am so pleased when I email or call the office that someone can always help me get through any issue. This service matters most to our non-profit. In all our years using the system, no one has ever complained about access and usage.”
"The biggest surprise was this was our most successful auction ever with a record-breaking amount grossed and netted. We will be using BiddingOwl in the future from here on out. We were so upset that we could not do our annual preschool charity auction in person this year due to Covid and were hesitant to even try it online. BiddingOwl was easy to use; if we had a question, the team would personally answer the phone and help us.
