Introducing TravelPledge Auctions, Simple Online Auction Software

TravelPledge helps thousands of nonprofits by connecting them with auction items from generous businesses. We’re excited to release our “all-in-one” online auction solution – TravelPledge Auctions!

With TravelPledge Auctions, you’ll enjoy:

  • Simple online auction software
  • Easy upload of your donated items
  • Access to auction items from generous businesses
  • Automated checkout and payment processing

Setting up an online auction with TravelPledge Auctions is a breeze. Enter basic details about your event, upload your donated items, and select some TravelPledge experiences.

Then open the auction for bidding by your donors.

Additionally, sell items at a fixed price if, say, you’ve procured a stack of gift cards from local restaurants.

TravelPledge Auctions also lets you collect cash donations. Specify as many fund-a-need denominations as you’d like and watch the donations roll in on a real-time dashboard. 

There is no app for bidders to download – they simply visit your custom TravelPledge Auction page.

After bidding closes, we email winning bidders a link to their invoice. Upon payment, winners of TravelPledge items automatically receive their certificate and redemption instructions.

Best of all, TravelPledge Auctions is free for nonprofits! We rely on optional tips from auction participants at checkout. Transaction fees from Stripe apply (2.5% + $0.30 per transaction).
