AUCTION FAQs

How does the silent auction work?
We will be using mobile bidding for our auction. You will be able to use your smartphone/tablet to keep up with the status of your bids and continue bidding until the auction closes. You can be the winning bidder wherever you are in the world!

Start Bidding
Browse the Silent Auction and start bidding on your favorite items! Place your bid on selected items, and set a maximum bid if desired, and Givesmart will continue to keep you in the running until you reach your maximum.
 
Keep Active
You will be notified via text if you have been outbid. Keep an eye on your favorite items! If you are NOT receiving the text messages make sure you have the correct mobile number under your profile. The texts will continue to notify you when you have been out bid or reached your maximum bid. When the silent auction closes, you will also receive a text message if you won any items!
 
For easier bidding you can also do the following:
Set a maximum bid. The auction software will automatically raise your bid by a predetermined increment until your maximum bid has been met or the silent auction ends.
