List as many auction items as you would like, whether you curate your own items or select items from the Auction Catalog!
Easy to Share
Not only can you share your auction on social media, email, etc., but so can anyone else; helping grow awareness of your event!

Setting Up An Auction Has Never Been So Easy!
You can have an auction up in minutes
Auction Planning Is Fun With Givsum!
You don’t have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders when managing your auction. By using better tools, you’ll have more time to work smarter, not harder, resulting in more money raised and more meaningful relationships nurtured with your donors and attendees.
Bid from any internet-connected device, anywhere
No one likes hovering over a sheet of paper and elbowing away other bidders or trying to watch over two bid sheets at once. Instead, give your auction participants the ability to select the items they want and bid digitally, giving you the chance to raise the most possible at your auction!
Create And Customize An Auction In Minutes
Customize an auction with your own title, descriptions, conditions, and pickup instructions. Upload multiple photos per listing, set opening bid amounts, and bidding increments. You can even display auction item contributors and/or sponsors!
Run a quick small auction or an elaborate auction that’s as big as your imagination!
Add as many auction items as you’d like. Have more than one of the same item? No problem! You can allow multiple winners for the same listing, if you have more than one item available.
Direct Text & Email Communication
Real-time announcements to your auction participants is easy when using Givsum. When participants are outbid on an item, they can receive text alerts to encourage them to re-bid. When the auction closes, winners can receive automated notifications via email and text. You can also craft and send your own emails and texts to anyone participating in your auction.
Expand Your Reach: Share & Promote
The best way to promote your auction is by leveraging your social networks. Alert your family and friends of your upcoming auction through any social media platform, via email, or by sharing the link directly with others. Best of all, whoever sees what you’ve promoted can easily pass along what you’ve shared with the click of a button out to their social networks, and so on and so on!
