Have a Silent Auction

The gorage.com website can serve your needs for an online auction by acting as a silent auction for your items.

How does it work?

When creating your item listing, put the minimum price you want to get for the item and state in the description (or title) that it is a silent auction item. Specify the length of time that buyers have to make an offer. At the end of that time period, the buyer that made the best offer above the minimum price wins the auction. You can notify them by e-mail that they have won, then get payment from them.

Why a silent auction?

Having a silent auction gives you the ability to accept serious offers on your items. If you choose to state the highest offer or change the listing price to the current highest dollar amount offered that is up to you. Otherwise, potential buyers will need to make an offer that they are willing to pay for the item not based on what the last bidder posted.

Who can benefit from using gorage.com to have a silent auction?

Silent auctions can be of great benefit to non-profit organizations that use online sales for fund-raising. In addition, sellers that have memorabilia or collectible items that are valuable may also use a silent auction to maximize the amount they receive for that item. gorage.com will be offering special discounts for 503c non-profit organizations to assist them in creating more effective online fund-raising events.
