Features List

Confused by the pricing of online and mobile bidding platforms? So are we.

Many companies offering online or mobile bidding platforms for charity auctions prominently display the minimum low cost of using their software and then in a blur of asterisks and fine print list dozens of exceptions, restrictions, limitations, term contracts, and gotchas.

At MobilBid we pride ourselves on transparent performance pricing. You pay nothing until you use our platform. Our pricing includes access to all our advanced features, unlimited use of the platform, training, ongoing tech assist, and no restrictions… to everyone using MobilBid.

So, we decided to list our features. Use it to compare MobilBid with any company offering similar services.
