Collect donations. Either use suggested amounts or enter your own donation values. Donations are a great way to convert undecided supporters. Pre-suggested values are an effective way to raise more money than having the donor enter their own contribution value. The Stripe and PayPal integration (optional) makes collecting funds a breeze.
Do you have a specific project that needs funding? Paddle-Raises and Fund-A-Need are effective tools to do just that. Give your supporters the option to pick where their money should go. It could be a new school computer lab or a food drive for your animal shelter. The possibilities are endless. These tools can also be used for raffle ticket sales.
Streamline ticket sales to your event. Add several options, including pricing levels, food choices, and more.
Also, sell other tickets such as raffles and 50/50 (check your state laws regulating the sale of raffle tickets).
Your bidders and supporters receive instant notifications via SMS and email if they have been outbid or won an item. Links provided bring them right back to the item to up their bid.
Engaging with your supporters is essential. BiddingOwl gives you the right tools. Send emails or SMS notifications to your donors and update them on events or encourage them to give to your cause.
Mark your favorite items and save them in your Watchlist. Monitor your bids in real-time.
Don't have time to keep watching and bidding? No problem. Set a proxy bid and the system will bid on your behalf up to the amount set as your max bid.
Depending on your setup, your supporters can either pay with all major credit cards (Stripe or PayPal) or pay you directly via cash or check outside the system. Our system handles refunds and encourages extra donations during checkout.
