ReadySetAuction 3.5 Release

The items listed in this section are ideas that come from you, our customers! We love to hear about what we can improve and what would help you do your job better. You can make suggestions at any time. Each idea is reviewed by our staff and has the potential to become a part of ReadySetAuction.

  • We are thrilled to announce extended viewing of your eCatalog at no additional charge! This was our top UserVoice request - you asked for it and your voices were heard.

ReadySetAuction is pleased to present its first release since becoming part of the SofterWare family of effective, easy-to-use fundraising software solutions.


  • Extended eCatalogue Viewing - Your eCatalog is now available for browsing by potential bidders for 45 days before and after your event! Generate loads of excitement and chatter about all of the items being added to your auction catalog and team up with donors to promote your event by sharing their generosity. Allow early bidding to boost your live auction starting bid and extend the fun for several weeks after you event by allowing continued bidding on items for an additional 45 days without any additional cost to you.

  • Unlimited eBidders - No more credits for eBidders or caps and a la carte "add-on" pricing for additional eBidders. Unlimited eBidder access is included with Complete packages! Your staff will enjoy streamlined administration and relief from worry about reaching bidder threshholds and purchasing more eBidder credits. Unlimited eBidders can mean unlimited potential auction revenue for you.

  • Automated Text Messaging Setup - Text message setup is now automated with a Complete package, eliminating the need for expensive add-on options. It's never been easier to allow technology to work for you. Automatically send outbid notices to boost participation and watch as energetic bidding drives your auction income through the roof.

  • ReadySetAuction Pricing Tier Change - ReadySetAuction is now a better value than ever, with a simplified tier structure that includes unlimited events in a year and many of our most popular "add-on" features at no additional cost.
