You can use the BiddingForGood Marketplace to boost your auction catalogue with exciting items - Travel Packages, Celebrity Experiences, Sports Collectibles, and more!
There are 2 types of items to choose from; Instant Items and Consignment Items
Instant Items do not have a cost, so if the item sells you will keep 67% of the profit and BiddingForGood will invoice your organization for the remaining 33%. Sold instant items do not have a performance fee.
Consignment items have a cost associated with them as noted in each item. There is a performance fee on Consignment items. The fee is applied to the amount raised above the item cost. If the selected consignment item sells, the vendor will send you an invoice based on the cost. Once your organization pays this invoice, the item will be released to the winning bidder. If the item does not sell, there is no risk to you.
How to add Marketplace Items to your auction:
- After clicking on Marketplace in the top menu bar in Auction Manager, peruse the items and select those that you think your bidding community would be likely to bid on. Add the items to your cart as you shop.
- Go to Your Cart and delete any items.
