About Us

“MobilBid was founded on the principle that game-changing technology should be within the reach of all fundraisers.”

Derek Fisher, President & Founder

At MobilBid our mission is to help people achieve their fundraising goals. We measure our success by the success of our customers, and we partner with them on every event they hold.

When we decided to explore mobile bidding we first consulted with non-profits and fundraising professionals to fully understand their needs. We then teamed up to build a smartphone-centred, mobile, silent auction platform with advanced features that is fun and easy to use. One that delivers better results…with less stress, and affordable to the widest possible spectrum of users.

We’re excited that in just a few short years, MobilBid is now used at hundreds of events annually and trusted by national non-profits, healthcare foundations, schools, colleges, professional sports teams, and smaller community charities.

We owe this success to the people we serve and strive to serve them well.

MobilBid is a division of NDI, a Toronto-based, Canadian technology company serving academic and non-profit markets since 1995.

An Easy Process

Open Account

Clients open a free account with access to the unique, software. No download or purchase and no annual or monthly fee – ever.
Our fees are based solely on our clients’ success.

Auction Setup

The intuitive software guides users through a custom-design set up with images and full descriptions, unlimited items, and bidders.
Auction parameters can be set for preview, pause, open and close.

Guest Registration

Guests use their personal smartphones to text a phone number that sends a custom link inviting them to register and access the auction.
There is no confusing native app to download.

Mobile Bidding

Unlike conventional silent auctions, guests don’t jostle to place bids. They use their phones to place bids and receive outbid alerts from anywhere.
A max bid allows the system bid automatically.

Express Payment

At close, MobilBid begins sending invoices to winning bidders with a prompt for mobile payment. This generates a receipt used to claim items.
Bidders can also pay by cheque, cash or credit card.

Customer Care

At MobilBid, we work closely with our clients, placing a high value on community, sharing information and promoting best practices.
This leads to a better understanding of their challenges and needs.

We enjoy seeing our clients succeed and listen carefully to their comments and suggestions. This process is invaluable in helping us continually improve our products and performance.
