Auctria Launch and Auctria Assist are new customer service options designed for those who want help setting up the logistics within the Auctria platform. These are great options to free up your time to work on other important details.
Team members are the people (identified by an email address) that are able to sign in to the Auctria site and help run your auction. Team members can add items, bidders, bids, etc. You may call them administrators or admins for short. In the system you will give them User permission to help plan and run the event.
No -- we will not automatically bill you for each year's license. Should you choose to use Auctria for the next year you will need to re-enter payment details to renew your license. Auctria does not believe in locking you in for any multi-year obligations.
On the Explorer plan, if income goes over $10K it will stop accepting bids, donations and purchases. Bidders will get an error until you remove excess bids or upgrade. Keep an eye on your dashboard to be safe!
For paid plans, if your event income goes above the $ limit, then you'll be notified and can either upgrade the account or reduce the income recorded.
Any income recorded from bidders counts towards the $ limit -- winning bids, purchases or donations.
No -- our only fees are the annual license fee.
If you use the optional integrated credit card processing there is small processing fee from Auctria. The credit card processor has its own fees that are direct to them.
Emerald & Diamond plans include texting feature: a dedicated phone number and up to 1,000 or 3,000 initial texts. Additional texts are available for purchase ($25.00\1,000 additional texts).
We don't charge you a percentage of what your event raises; our license fee is a fixed price upfront cost. The only additional costs are associated with processing credit cards through the site and the optional texting features.
There is NO limit to the number of items.
The Explorer plan is limited to 250 Bidders.
The Emerald plan is limited to 750 Bidders.
