How It Works

How It Works

StarsCharityAuction is an auction site that raises funds for nonprofit organizations through online charity auctions with celebrities, brands and more.
Through our toll free telephone numbers, one-on-one online chats, remote screen sharing, StarsCharityAuction is here to assist you in any way possible.
It’s free to join StarsCharityAuction and bid on amazing auctions. You may signup by Facebook, Twitter or your Instagram account.  You are not required to sign in to browse or search auctions.
To participate in bidding on any charity auction you will need to create an auction wallet. Auction wallet ensures bidders have a valid credit card to pay or donate to an auction.
If Buy Now is offered you may purchase the charity auction at the set price and end the auction. If Bid Now is offered and at the end of the auction time your bid price is the highest price and there is either no reserve price or your bid is above the reserve price, you win the auction. Auctions may offer Bid, Buy Now, or both.
Remember, if you don’t win, you don’t pay! Unless you want to donate any amount your heart desires to the nonprofit organization the auction supports. In which case, instead of winning the auction, you receive an official letter thanking you for your tax deductible contribution.
StarsCharityAuction fees are 10% of the proceeds to cover the credit card payment fees, transaction fees, and to maintain our staff of fundraising representatives and developers who work hard to make sure you have the technology and personal support you need. 90% of the proceeds benefit the favorite charity of the auctioneer.
Once you review your invoice and approve payment for your winning bid, you will be prompted to communicate with the auctioneer to arrange receiving your auction prize.
Once you inform StarsCharityAuction site of receiving your auction prize, you may leave a feedback for the auctioneer about your experience.
StarsCharityAuction ensures you will receive your auction prize or 100% of your money back.   All we ask is for you to notify us with any questions or concern within the first 30 days of your payment.

Holding Your Own Charity Auction To Benefit Your Favorite Charity

If you have an item or an experience you want to auction off to benefit your favorite charity, you may request to be approved as an auctioneer.  Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t charge an annual fee for the privilege to list auctions.  In fact, you may be a bidder, an auctioneer, and even hold multiple charity auctions all at the same time.  Once you are approved, you choose your favorite charity from the 1.6 Million charities that we have partnered with. You may search for charities by name, unique EIN number, distance from your zip code, or choose one from list of popular charities.

Don’t worry you are not locked into any charity and you may change the favorite charity you want to raise money for at any time.
Once favorite charity is chosen, you may list your charity auction. StarsCharityAuction empowers you to choose your starting bid price, fixed price, reserve price, sales tax, shipping and handling charges. You can even decide to have the shipping charge be paid directly to you to cover shipping instead of benefiting your favorite charity.
Once your auction is reviewed and approved by our staff, it will appear online. You may take advantage of our build-in connections to Facebook, Twitter and Email to share your auction with your family and friends.
If you want to be recognized for holding a charity auction to benefit your favorite charity, you may post a picture of yourself, share a bit about yourself or your company, as well as write about the charity you are raising money for, under the setting page.  You may also choose to hide these information for privacy reasons.
If you don’t mark your account as private, StarsCharityAuction’s top contributors will honor your contributions by displaying the amount you raised for your favorite charity. Top Contributors ranks the users based on the amount of money donated by winning bidders and the amount of money raised through holding charity auctions.
By offering 90% of the proceeds and our Donate Without Bidding feature, StarsCharityAuction raises more money for non-profit organizations than our leading competitors.
