  Why Bid Beacon? 

We provide simple tools to give you the fundraising edge

Bid Beacon was created for the frequent fundraisers, event planners, revenue generators and volunteers. If your goal is to raise funds, we can help! No “discovery calls” to find out pricing, no lengthy demos with sales teams. Simply sign up and go! Bid Beacon can be used completely self serve and offers flexible pricing.

Recognize your valuable sponsors by promoting them throughout your auction which includes a dedicated sponsors page. You can also create optional sponsor tiers.

Easy-to-navigate platform for both admins and guests, instant outbid notifications, multiple online payment options, and an online raffles integration with Raffle Rocket. Silent auctions through Bid Beacon have the ability to increase your fundraising potential. 

There are zero hidden fees when using Bid Beacon. We simply take our platform fee off each transaction, so don’t worry about paying anything upfront and out of pocket. Best of all, every auction has a platform fee cap. This means Bid Beacon will only collect a platform fee up to the auction’s cap. For more, please visit our Pricing page.
