January 2023: the current dashboard release has new graphics and some interface changes. Many screenshots still reflect the older release and will be updated shortly.

In general, Sponsorships are sold from the Auction Website and in many cases, the Sponsorship will include a benefit for the sponsor. These benefits may be in the form of, for example, recognition on the Auction Website and/or Tickets to the "In-Person" event being held by your organization.

The key difference between a Sponsorship and a Donor donation is the Sponsorship will be, in most cases, purchased on the Auction Website and its payment will be recorded through the Auction Website without any intervention by an organizer.

The Sponsorship is generally going to be a For Sale item which means the organizers can use the Record Purchase or Sell Tickets functions as appropriate from the Auction Dashboard as well.

Selling Sponsorships

Sponsorships in Auctria are best handled as an item bidders can purchase. In many cases, Sponsorships are also configured as Tickets since they will generally include a number of admissions to the event, especially with "in-person" event or events where the number of participants are limited.

  • For Sale Items
    • For Sale type items represent items that are sold for a fixed price. These items are also often "sold" to multiple people. For Sale items are used, for example, when selling auction Tickets, or "raffle tickets" as well as items where the bidder thinks of buying the item rather than winning it.
  • Key Topics: Tickets
    • A curated list of User Guide pages and sections related to Tickets and how they can be sold using the Auctria platform.


    Ticket Items should only be used for event admissions and other similar gate-keeping measures. Please do not enable this feature set for items that represent other kinds of "tickets", such as raffle tickets, drink tickets, etc.

  • Online Bidding - Only Ticket Holders
    • Bidders must have a ticket assigned to them to bid.
