Receiving Your Auction Items
Auction and event check-out will be done online through GiveSmart. Visit the Pay tab at the top of the GiveSmart homepage to review your purchase summary and check out with a credit card. Payment for any auction item, raffle ticket, vote or donation is due on Sunday, March 14th. Cross Trails Ministry will automatically charge any outstanding balances no later than Friday, March 19, 2021.
If you win an item, we will reach out to you by Friday, March 19, 2021 to coordinate fulfilling your item. Many of our auction item donors have graciously agreed to arrange to mail items to their winners! If that is the case, you will receive the donor's contact information after the auction. If your item is being held by Cross Trails, we will contact you after the auction to arrange a pick up or to mail your item. Some items can be shipped for free (usually certificates), which will be noted in the item description. If you prefer to have your other item(s) shipped to you, please consider adding item #500, "Shipping," to your cart before checking out to help CTM cover the cost of shipping your item.
Thank you for your patience as we work through each item's winning bids to ensure everything gets to the rightful owner. For any questions about auction items, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
