GalaBid Overview

What is GalaBid?

GalaBid is a cloud-based fundraising software designed to help Australian corporate foundations, nonprofits, and charities organize bidding, donations, and silent auctions. Features include event broadcasting, remote access, notifications, branded auction catalogs, online payments, and event analytics.

The application offers a live streaming feature, which allows participants to bid on silent or live auctions, purchase raffle tickets, and track event progress through the leaderboard. Attendees can receive invitations to purchase raffle tickets from mobile devices along with notifications for winning tickets. It also lets guests post photos on the social wall, participate in live Q&A sessions, and interact with other members, coordinators, and entertainers.

GalaBid allows organizations to collect donations from attendees and non-attendees, view current contributions through the donation screen, and send tax receipts via SMS or email. Event marketers can create custom posts and share event details and objectives across social media networks. Patrons can participate in silent auctions through online catalogs, receive mobile alerts for updates, and make payments online.

Excellent Platform

From start to finish [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and the team made our journey extremely pleasant, and were extremely helpful and helped us raise a significant sum of money for our charity this year.

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is amazing and always really helpful. We love using Galabid each year for our Gala Dinner. The guests really enjoy using it and it is a very simple piece of software to use.

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is amazing and always really helpful. We love using Galabid each year for our Gala Dinner. The guests really enjoy using it and it is a very simple piece of software to use.

Pros

Very easy to use
Great video tutorials when you need help
Easy to set up
Great functionality and ability to incorporate Live and Silent Auction items

Cons

It is expensive. Our event is a Gala Dinner to raise funds for the young people we support, and the Galabid bill is always the biggest bill for us. I am able to get discounts and free donations for everything else.

Pros

the software is easy to use, we can add in our own products easily, add in donations, mix them up, send out links early to possible users/bidders. The team are great to work with, overall the simplicity is great, text function words well.

Cons

We dont like that it is clunky to set up live projector display, it would be handy to have an honor roll type list of people who had donated, bought stuff. we can upload multiple pics into the gallery would be handy to have video as an option.

Response from CrowdComms

Hi Kylie - thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback. We really appreciate your thoughts. Great to hear you had a positive experience using the platform. The honor roll is something we're currently looking to implement, along with video options for the gallery. Thanks again and good luck with your future fundraising. The GalaBid team.

Our expectations have been exceeded and we would wish to work with GalaBid again if and when we run another auction.

Pros

The GalaBid software was very easy to use making it accessible for our group of inexperienced volunteers. This meant more people in our team were confident in using the site from the outset enabling us to spread tasks around the group. Setting up the auction and loading lots was straightforward and intuitive. The structures of the dashboard menus were logically laid out and the inputs required were self explanatory (albeit there are helpful prompts attached to each field). The customer facing site was attractive and its ease of use resulted in excellent engagement and results. The automated alerts to the bidders helped raise additional funds for our charity. Managing the auction with the dashboard, KPIs and reports was made very easy. In short, our expectations were exceeded at every level and we appreciated the support and contact from our account director who took a personal interest in how we were proceeding.

Cons

When registering as bidders, there is an option to use a landline or mobile (cellphone) number. I would only offer the mobile option as the spoken instruction is not as clear as the text instructions - a very minor point in an otherwise excellent product.

Response from CrowdComms

Hi John - many thanks for providing such comprehensive feedback. Is great to know you had a positive experience with so many of the platform features. We look forward to working with you again. Best, Team Galabid.

Excellent, Efficient and a pleasure to use.

Pros

This was an incredible platform and i am so pleased that we used it. It was easy to use and upload items and it was easy for people to register and use!
I was fundraising in lockdown for my best friend and i had no idea how i was going to run and distribute my auction. Then i contacted [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who was amazing and i honestly could not have asked for a better tool. It allowed me to reach a global audience with ease and it without a doubt more than tripled what i would have raised without it!
For me this platform is a no brainer and a must have for an auction! All my contacts found it easy and a lot of fun to use.

Cons

I didn't find any, it was easy to use and had lots of great tools to use.
