Raffle

  • In the eCatalog, visitors may view the raffle package, but they cannot purchase the raffle tickets that are automatically created when the raffle package was set up. IMPORTANT: Because of the variety of online gambling and raffle laws at the state and city levels, ReadySetAuction does not directly support the online sales of raffle tickets.
  • Auction staff may record raffle ticket purchases using the Control Center's @Event > Record Sales > Wins & Purchases page. 
  • Auction staff may record the raffle winner using the Control Center's @Event > Record Sales > Raffle Winners page.
