Well, we can’t speak for every silent auction software company but ClickBid is just $500. An entire event with managed support for only $500. There are no limits to bidders, items, totals and payments either. Signup is easy and can be done online.
You can also pick and choose to add on features specific to your needs such as ticket and landing pages, mass messaging and higher levels of support. However, everything you need to run a top end auction is included in our flat license fee. Our rule of thumb is to use last year’s auction total, add 20% (typically it is much higher with mobile bidding but we try to be very conservative) and then subtract $500. That is what you can expect to increase your auction totals in the first year!
