Auction Fees

Depending on the organizer, they might choose to pass on the fees to their donors to raise more money or not. Please contact the organizer directly to check this. If you've won an item and you covered the fees you can read through below

You've won an item (or several) after bidding, awesome!

Once the auction has closed, you'll be automatically charged for your winnings to the card you've added to your account. The amount charged will include a payment processing fee and service fee on top if the organization has chosen for donors to cover fees.

For most auctions, the fee is 5.95% + $0.30. More information on how the fee is calculated when the winners are to cover them can be found here.


For example, a $100 item will have a $6.65 fee. The winner will ultimately pay $106.65 for their item.
