Heart on drift wood

While planning your next Fundraising event there are several key aspects you need to take into consideration and certain things you need to be aware of, in order to make the right decision when it comes to selecting a fundraising organisation to help you.
Below are five Traps that lie out there, waiting to snag you:
1) CommissionsSome companies will charge a commission on YOUR Donated items! Yes, they aim to take a percentage on the sale of items you have worked hard to procure, at no cost.
With Ezybidz this is not the case. We have never before charged any commission on donated items or services and will never do so in the future. When you choose Ezybidz, you get 100% of the funds on your donated items and 100% of funds over the cost price on consignment items! In addition to this you will be assured of the most professional service and the most amazing donated items without any unnecessary commissions.
2) Authenticity of itemsWhen the guests at your event are bidding on an item, they certainly want to know if the item is real and unquestionably authentic. This can be a deal-breaker in obtaining a successful bid on an item that will benefit your fundraising event. Worse still a faulty item or bad experiences which can come from unexperienced companies could put guest off supporting your charity again in the future!
Ezybidz has been in the industry for over 15 years and buys from only reputable sources, some for over a decade. All items come with a certificate of authenticity issued by Ezybidz, who stand behind their products, 100%.
3) Hidden chargesOne thing you must be aware of when deciding on your Fundraising partner is the hidden charges that may arise. At Ezybidz Fundraising Solutions, we can offer our technology and services, along with aspirational (and sought after) experiences and items, all with NO upfront or hidden charges. We are a fundraising solutions company and our main aim is to help you gain as many funds as possible for your charity.
Some companies charge a fee if your guests lose their bidding card, which they can’t participate in the auction without. Beware of these costs.
4) Paying for the system when it comes to electronic bidding, there is always a sophisticated system involved and most IT companies charge their customers to use their electronic bidding system.
Ezybidz does not. We aim to provide our world-leading electronic system at NO-cost, so both you and your guests can enjoy the simplicity of electronic bidding, with no hit to your bottom line!
5) Event staffing coordinating a Fundraising event can be a rewarding but overwhelming task, especially when faced with running an electronic auction! While volunteers are supremely beneficial, they may fall short on expertise in fundraising auctions. So where do you turn?
Ezybidz will arrange professional staff who are dedicated to help you succeed in exceeding your Fundraising goals! We call our team: Customer Service Representatives (CSR), who will run both the Live and Silent Auction, including collecting payments to completely relieve you of the stress. This comes at NO-cost, and with up to a dozen CSR’s able to be provided for your event, think how much the IT companies offering electronic bidding will charge for that!
So while organising your next fundraising event, be aware of these 5 hidden traps that are out there and be aware of the possibilities that arise by choosing Ezybidz. Just remember, Ezybidz Cares!
