I filled out a number of applications for auction items through Bidding for Good. We did not purchase their services but several businesses use their application. I found that I got a lot of NOs from those businesses affiliated with Bidding for Good. I'd like to hear other's experiences with them. Did businesses say no because I didn't buy BFG's services? Thanks and good luck with your events!

I've had only 1 "yes" from a company that uses BiddingforGood and many didn't reply. I don't know whether the results are typical, since we are a small Christian school in a relatively small city so we don't offer much in the way of market size, but we aren't using BFG services either. I'd like to think that not using BFG isn't the reason.

Hi Laura-Thanks for the feedback about BFG. It seems like a lot of businesses are starting to use BFG for their donation requests. I'd love to know how they decide who gets what. I'm actually talking to one of their staff tomorrow about credit card processing and I'll see if she can give me any information about them!

I wondered whether you received any answers during your meeting. I'd be interested in knowing whether some companies only contribute to those groups who are BfG customers.

Our elementary school just hosted our first online auction and we used Auction Frog. They were great to deal with, very helpful and we had a very positive experience.

We used biddingforgood for our school auction. it went very well and their bidder community drive a bunch of bids. they also provided us some items that we kept most of the $$.

we know somebody who uses their donation system to manage requests and he says that using their service is not a factor.
