Item types on the GalaBid platform include:

Raffle - GalaBids raffle is a solely online, generating online tickets and containing a raffle draw under the raffle controls.

Buy-It-Now - But it now allows you to sell your items for a fixed price.

No Risk Items on Consignment - These are auction items provided by GalaBid that you can add to your campaign at no cost.

Sealed Bid - These items work just like auction items however the bids are kept anonymous to the participants so the bid blind by going off the starting price and the highest bid is selected at the end.

Locked - Locked items are used for live events where participants can view the items online and then bid in person and using the volunteer mode you can add the winning bid to the item and then take the payment.

Expand Advanced options under the Item description box to access a range of additional options including, vouchers and reserve prices.
