Here's a New Selling Point for Auctions


If you've ever waited in line at the end of a charitable event or auction to make a donation or to pick up your winning item and you found that the line was moving rather slowly, AuctionPay offers a solution.

Targeting non-profit organizations and other charities, AuctionPay's electronic payment system speeds up the registration and donation process at these types of events. A slow or confusing check-in or checkout at a live event can be frustrating for attendees, donors and volunteers. The founder of the company, Jeff Jetton, a payment industry veteran and frequent auction attendee, started AuctionPay after standing in one too many long lines.

The system uses AuctionPay's proprietary software and touch-screen prompts on a credit card processing terminal to capture guests' payment information at registration as well as collect payments at the end of the event. All attendee information is stored in a centralized and highly secure database.

AuctionPay uses Wells Fargo Merchant Services for processing payments. Transactions are completed within two to three business days and are processed all in one batch. Since transactions are processed all at once after the event is over, a phone line is not needed at the fundraiser. AuctionPay's credit card terminals also provide alerts that a credit card is expired.

Users of AuctionPay's solution range from large non-profits to schools and include clients such as Ronald McDonald House, Good Samaritan Foundation and the National Kidney Foundation.
