The recently enhanced Downsyzor application now provides groups with a convenient all-in-one tool for charity auctions and other community fund-raising events.
Community groups and charitable organizations often rely on the generosity of donors in order to fund their operations. Charity auctions are a common form of fund-raising for such organizations, but these events have become more difficult to arrange as a result of the recent pandemic.
The new Downsyzor application from 888 Auctions allows charities and community groups to run online auctions that are visible to local and international buyers.
Access and use of the new application are relatively easy, with users having to fill out a questionnaire relating to the auction prior to onboarding.
The company provides some guidelines about the contents of an auction, which should contain at least 50 items.
It is recommended that auction contents on the updated application contain some high-value items such as lamps, jewelry, watches, coins, vases, or silverware, in order to attract a reasonable amount of interest.
Lower-value items such as appliances, tools, memorabilia, and sports equipment are also appropriate, however, 888 Auctions suggest that cheap or broken items and clothes do not sell well.
As 888 Auctions arrange for packing and shipping of all sold items, users of the new application are advised to have all goods being auctioned in one location.
Designed for ease of use, charity groups and community organizations just need to photograph the items to be sold and upload them to the application.
888 Auctions holds cataloged auctions on the new Downsyzor platform every week, however, charitable organizations are encouraged to contact the company to discuss their specific needs.
A company representative stated: “Downsyzor can be used for fundraising by churches, charities, sports teams, and community organizations facing challenging financial circumstances. We have an alternative solution for you to raise funds through crowdsourcing content sales.”
