TravelPledge partners with industry-leading mobile bidding providers to deliver a seamless experience for organizers. Our integrations prevent manually loading items into your mobile bidding system, saving time and reducing errors.

TravelPledge currently integrates with the following mobile bidding providers:

EVENT.GIVES (formerly Bidr)

If you already have an EVENT.GIVES account:

  1. Log in to EVENT.GIVES and select TravelPledge experiences to include in your auction. Our integration syncs our experiences to EVENT.GIVES' database so no need to log in to TravelPledge.
  2. After your event, document winning bid information in EVENT.GIVES (i.e., winning bid and winning bidder contact info). This information automatically syncs to TravelPledge so we can prepare your invoice.
  3. Follow a link from TravelPledge to pay your invoice.

If you do NOT already have an EVENT.GIVES account:

  1. Log in to TravelPledge.
  2. From the Home tab, click Turn on Mobile Bidding.
  3. Find EVENT.GIVES in the list, and click Get Started!
  4. Enter your mobile phone number and Event Keyword to start your EVENT.GIVES account. Your event keyword will be used to create an unique URL for attendees to access at your event.
  5. Check your email for details about next steps. When you add items to your event, your items will automatically sync to your EVENT.GIVES account once a day. You may also sync items immediately by clicking Manage Mobile Bidding from the Home tab.
  6. After your event, document winning bid information in EVENT.GIVES (i.e., winning bid and winning bidder contact info). This information automatically syncs to TravelPledge so we can prepare your invoice.
  7. Follow a link from TravelPledge to pay your invoice.
