If the guests’ names weren’t provided at the time of the table purchase, then at Check-in your computer operators can assign them to the proper ‘party’ as part of checking in a walk-in guest. You can direct donors to your Ready Set Auction-hosted event website where they can fill out the online procurement form to submit information about their donations.
When submitted, the information ‘lands’ in the inbox in your Control Center where you and your committee can review it and add it right to your list of donations. If your organization has purchased the Complete plan, then you can conduct online bidding leading up to your event starting at AM EST (AM EDT) 45 days before your event date.
If your organization has purchased the Ready Set Auction Select or Complete plan, this same merchant account will allow guests to purchase tickets and sponsorships online and make cash donations online prior to your event, and for winners to self-pay from their own phones/tablets during and following your event.
If you want to use an existing merchant account with Ready Set Auction, you will need to set up a gateway with one of our merchant processing partners.
There’s never any software to install or maintain, and never any need to sync your data.
Your account Administrator can add up to 50 committee members to your staff roster and invite them to set up accounts for logging into the Control Center.
Our partners can also advise you on how to purchase compatible swipers.
The merchant account your organization sets up belongs to your organization.
Since guest information — including meal choices — flows directly into your Ready Set Auction Control Center’s guest management tools, this feature seamlessly automates RSVP tracking. At the time they buy their tickets online, guests have the option to save their credit card for event purchases.
Your committee can also capture a guest’s credit card information via the Control Center prior to the event and during check-in. You can sell tables online, and the person making the purchase can even enter the names of the guests at that time.
