Online Bidding: Setting Up Packages
Creating packages for an Online Bidding event is very similar to creating packages for a paper bid sheet auction.
- It is best practice to set up your packages first as items in the Greater Giving software. See: Adding Items
- Assign items to packages. See: Creating Packages
- Ensure the packages:
Note: If a package has a Guaranteed Purchase price specified, the "Buy Now" option will be enabled for the package. If you prefer to disable the “Buy Now” option for a package, make sure the Guaranteed Purchase field is left blank.
- Have an image uploaded.
Note: Images will automatically scale to 300px by 300px - Images should be a JPG, JPEG, or PNG; the file size cannot exceed 20MB.

Once you have created your Online Bidding Packages, click Refresh under the summary area for Online Bidding on your Project Home to update the current number of Packages included in Online Bidding. To view how your packages will appear on your bidding site, click the Show Bidding Page link on the right hand side of your Project Home. This launches a new tab with your Online Bidding site.
