jumblebee auction options

Built around you

We are very flexible when it comes to your auction. We want to work with you to provide a service that ticks all the boxes you were looking for within the cost parameters you had in mind. As with every aspect of our relationship with you, the look and feel of your auction can be tailored to exactly what you want. Our auction technology can include charity logos and images, running totals, leaderboards (in your chosen colour scheme), countdown timers, sponsors, a range of pledge options and prize donor logos. If you have many lots your can categorise them so that people can easily navigate their way around your auction. You can also add ‘buy now’ options – useful if you have several identical lots. We also have a selection of our own prizes available if you would like to add more to your auction. The pages are easy to navigate and are smart phone optimised.

When it comes to technology, if you’re ending the auction at an event you can decide whether you would rather run the online auction through your venue’s wifi, using mobile signal or whether you would like us to supply a wifi server for reliability. You choose whether you would like your winners to be emailed or to receive a text. You can also decide whether you need an AV package, tablets and/or screens. If you don’t want any technology at all we can also run paper auctions, also called sealed bid auctions. We have put together some suggested packages in the table below for your auction but we are always open to other suggestions and ideas so get in touch if you can’t see an option that works for you.

Personalised to you

Because every auction we run is 100% personalised we don’t have off-the-shelf pricing. We have given a breakdown below of the three main routes you can take with a jumblebee auction, from the online version through to the full package with tablets, screens and a wifi server. jumblebee auctions are free to set up and run and there are no additional costs with an online silent auction other than the 5% of takings. Additional support is priced in two ways, either a fixed price or a lower fixed price plus a small % of the winning bids. Unlike other companies, our prices are not dependent on you taking a number of externally sourced auction lots with a supply price (though these are available through our Superstars partnership and we have our some of our own prizes available). We will work with you to put together an auction that really ticks all of your boxes.

In addition, jumblebee can collect payments for you via its credit/debit card payment gateway (Stripe – additional transaction fee of 2.4% + 20p for UK cards and 3% + 20p for AMEX and non-UK cards per transaction applies), or you can collect payments via cheque, bank transfer, cash or through your own PayPal Account (PayPal fees will be deducted).

Working with you

jumblebee aims to help raise funds for good causes at the lowest cost possible. Every effort is made to keep our cost base low so that the highest % of funds raised goes directly to your cause or charity.

We’ll listen to your requirements and put together a package and price for you that covers exactly what you want from your auction. Find out more about how we can support you with your auction.
