Comments: This site delivers! Easy to set up and add/change items. Simple bidder sign up and bids can be manually input for those that are not computer literate. Support was simple and available 24/7. No up front cost just a small % of the highest bid, this is a small nonprofits dream.

Comments: Bidding Owl is not only easy to use as a site manager with regards to set up, figures, reports, etc., gorgeous to look at with as much description information one determines is necessary as well as three colorful photographs and/or logos, and is very simple for bidders to use, at home or via their mobile devices as well, but the customer service is simply top notch! We had several questions along the way, as we had never run an online silent auction before, and when we called for help, either someone answered and helped us immediately, or we received a return phone call within minutes. We highly recommend Bidding Owl - we made a great deal of money for our food pantry, had fun doing it, and received all the support along the way you could ever ask for!

Comments: We used BiddingOwl.com for our annual school fundraiser. The program was super easy to use and it saved us a lot of work. Our volunteers were able to enter the system at the same time and work on the donations and the guest/bidders. The school auction was a real success, particularly, because we used mobile bidding for the first time. Our donors love it and it was a great addition to the event.
