EasyAuction™: Your Auction Database

software is a web-based data system that allows nonprofit organizations to hold a professionally-run fundraising auction using volunteers. It is especially designed for church auctions, school auctions and other nonprofit auctions—any organization that sees holding an auction as a way to raise money for operating expenses or for a specific project.

EasyAuction™ was developed by Sara Mellen, author of SOLD: How to Run a Great Community Auction, and is the product of 15 years experience helping run auctions for a variety of churches, schools and other nonprofit organizations. EasyAuction™ is not only feature-rich, but is priced low enough that even the smallest auction can be run in professional manner.

Because the software is provided online, it can be accessed through any type of computer (PC or Mac) and using any browser. Data entry can be assigned to more than one individual, since the database is held on the Internet instead of individual computers. Our motto: Make more money and don't burn out your volunteers!

Among the benefits that EasyAuction™ can provide for your auction are:
  • Easy-to-use online data entry forms for bidders, donations, sales and payments.
  • Customizable category lists, bid sheets, bidder cards, receipts, and donor thank-you letters
  • Numerous reports, including but not limited to:
    • Lists of donors, bidders and items
    • Two catalog versions, simple two-click pdf and Microsoft Word™-editable
    • Bid sheets, both two-click pdf and Microsoft Word™-editable
    • Bidder cards (3 different formats)
    • Attendance information
    • Oral auction paperwork including information cards for the auctioneer and runner sheets
    • Sales reports, both detail and summary
  • The ability to download information so that you can create your own custom forms (such as the catalog) and back up data locally.
  • Optional features such as member list upload, credit card processing and an online donation and registration module.
