What is Mobile Bidding?
Mobile Bidding is a way for charities to raise more at silent auctions when guests bid from their phones, and is a key part of modern nonprofit fundraising. As market leader, Gesture has run more mobile bidding events in the U.S. than anyone.
Registration is quick and painless so donors can start bidding sooner. With pre-registration, auto-registration via integrated ticketing, and importing capabilities, we’ve got you covered.
There’s no software to download or device to manage. Donors bid from their own phone or computer and remain up to date with SMS outbid notifications and status banners on every item page.
No phone? No problem! Our staff will act as personal shoppers during your event to ensure each donor has the white-glove experience they deserve.
Guests can conveniently pay by phone and pick up their items without needing to open their wallet or obtain a paper receipt.
Make Hope Happen™
Our flagship technology automates your auction, allowing donors to bid from anywhere in the room… or the world. Maximize bidding activity by placing it directly into the hands of your donors. Encourage others to bid whenever and wherever they feel inspired, whether that is during your event or at 2pm on a Tuesday afternoon.
As the market leader, Gesture has run more mobile bidding events than any other company. From elegant galas to golf tournaments to local school fundraisers and stadium events, we’ve done it all!
Our fundraising experts will guide you through the best ways to utilize technology to improve your donors’ giving experience and increase revenue for your cause.
