FAQ

How does online bidding work?

RallyUp uses the English Auction method of bidding that is common to charity auctions. A supporter bids on an item, and that bid becomes the high bid until someone makes a higher bid. The first bidder will be then be notified and will have a chance to increase their bid.

Can I add an online auction to an in-person event?

Yes, and there are a lot of advantages to doing that. You can open your auction for bidding a few days, weeks, or months before your event (a few weeks is common). That way you can promote the link along with your other event communications. Supporters at your event can make bids during the event (text-to-bid is a good way to do this), but those online can bid at the same time. By adding your auction online, you can attract bidders who can’t attend your event.

How will bidders know if they’re outbid?

The system instantly emails a bidder if they’ve been outbid. Donors simply click a button to make a new bid. Rebidding is quick and easy since the system already knows who the bidder is and doesn’t have to collect their information again.
