Both your donors and attendees are important. They can be the same person -  someone who donates to your auction might also bid at your auction. Pearl Bids keeps track of these great supporters of your cause. No need to enter them twice. We track what they donated and on which items they bid, making it super easy to get started when you start preparing for your next auction. 

When you print your Sign In Sheet, a personalized sheet is generated for the attendee to keep.  With the  Attendee’s name and bidding number right on this sheet, great for their silent-auction bidding, the live-auction bidding (Hold up that number!) or raffle tickets. 

If you hold a silent auction fundraiser for a non-profit or NGO you will need this report. It shows the winning bid for each item organized per person, it's market value, the amount paid, and if payment was more than the market value. The information is helpful in determining whether or not the payments can be catagorized as being tax deductible. Accountants love this report. It can also be emailed in CSV format. This is why you use a silent auction app!


* a yearly bidding-license is required to enter new bids.




If you raise funds for a non-profit or NGO, a silent auction app needs to report who donated and what they donated to your auction.  To help, we’ve built the Accounting Donation Report! The Accounting Donation Report can be emailed as a pdf or as a CSV file, for easy import in Mac OSX Numbers, MS excel, Quickbooks, etc.

It is handy to organize your auction according to table name (Spa Table, Travel Table, Dining Table, etc.). The Silent Auction app, Pearl Bids, allows you to easily print out alisting of each item on a table, including a small graphic and donor recognition. Combined together, these table lists create the perfect booklet/catalog for your attendees.
