Create your own silent auctions using Paybee's auto generated silent auction landing pages and bidding sheets, each with with their own unique and shareable URL
Take the tedious work out of your auction as the Paybee system auto-generates bid
sheets for each of your auction items. These bid sheets can be generated in traditional written bid format or in QR code format allowing for digital bidding on auction items. Simply upload your auction items into PayBee and our software will prepare print ready auction item files.
The Paybee system creates a live feed of your current high bidders to each silent auction item. This leaderboard can be checked at all times during the auction to keep all your guests up to date with the event's activity. In addition, bidders may place their next bid directly from their mobile device without ever having to return to an auction table.
PayBee gives you the ability to send out real time messages to your auction participants. By way of both SMS and email you can contact your silent auction bidders at any time of your choosing. The PayBee platform provides automatic messages regarding auction closing times as well as post auction checkout links, which you can use for collecting payment on winning bidding for auction items.
Save time by bulk uploading all of your silent auction items at once. Simply fill out a pre-made spreadsheet template and your auction will be ready in minutes. Customizable fields include silent auction item name, description, photos, videos, quantity, starting bid, bidding increments and more!
Streamline your silent auction using Paybee's silent auction software. Once your Items are uploaded into the PayBee platform most of the work is already done for you.
Donors can partake in the bidding from anywhere with an internet connection as Paybee's silent auction software has completely eliminated the need for bidders to be present in the same venue as your auction items. Bidding can take place from an online dedicated landing page, an sms or email link or by QR code scan on a printed bid sheet.
Track your bidders live from your auction management page as well as your bidding leaderboard. Make changes as you go with the ability to add and delete bids as well as send alerts to your bidders in real time. You have complete control over your auction with the ability to pause or end bidding at anytime. Pre-scheduled options are also available allowing you to specify auction ending dates and times.
Winning bidders can pay for their items from anywhere. Each winning bidder will receive a payment link for checkout by email and SMS upon winning their item, they simply need to click through on the link and can pay via credit card or smart pay from their own device. Additionally, event volunteers using the PayBee mobile application can accept bids and payments from winning bidders via credit card swipe, cash, check or bank account transfer.
