It is absolutely free to register, and create a date auction. As long as you have an active, non-expired, date auction, you get all the benefit of a paying member. In other words, CharityDateAuction.org is totally free for participating users.
If you decide not to have your very own date auction, yet want to bid or make offers to date other users then a monthly subscription of $24.95 per month is required. ChairtyDateAuction.org also offers three and six month subscription at substantial savings.
If you are date auction winner, you are obligated to pay the amount that you bid or offered. If you don’t win a date, you don’t pay your bid or offered price. As a date auction winner, you will receive an invoice to pay your bid or offer price with proceeds benefiting your date’s favorite charity. Once payment is received, you are allowed to communicate with your date via email, Skype and/or Instant Messenger.
If you are a paying member or have an active date auction, you can send messages to other members that are not holding active date auctions. If they respond and you elect to see their response to your message, then there will be a one time charge of $5.00 that will benefit the user’s favorite charity. If you don’t get a respond or decide not to see the reply email there will be no charge. If you decide to pay the one time charge of $5.00, then there will be no future charges to correspondence more with that user via email, Skype and/or Instant Messenger.
91.5% of all money you donate or raise through your date auctions goes to the non-profit organizations. A small fee of 8.5% is charged by FirstGiving.org for credit card and other processing related charges.
Please bid responsibility, and have a great time while raising money for your cause.
