About TravelPledge's Experiences
TravelPledge connects your benefit auction to fun experiences posted by generous business owners. Find local golf, B&B stays, wine samplings, luxury vacations and much more.
Step 1: Link Your TravelPledge & Event.Gives Accounts
If you don't have a TravelPledge account
Log in to your Event.Gives event and click Add Items. Then click Get Items.
After clicking "Add to event" for a TravelPledge item, you will be prompted to create a TravelPledge account, which will automatically be linked.
If you already have a TravelPledge account
Log in to TravelPledge, click Turn on Mobile Bidding from the Home tab and follow the prompts to link your Event.Gives account. You'll need your mobile phone number and Event.Gives event keyword to complete the linkage.
Note: If you already have an Event.Gives account associated with your mobile phone number and an event with the you enter keyword, the event will be linked to your existing event. If you don't already have an Event.Gives account, this step will create an account for you.
Step 2: Select Experiences Within Event.Gives
Log in to your Event.Gives event and click Add Items. Then click Get Items. Then select the ones you want to add to your event.
You can filter experiences by type using the filters in the upper right-hand corner.
Step 3: Pay Your Invoice After Your Event
TravelPledge will automatically receive winning bid information for any TravelPledge items that sold. Once we do, your invoice will be available within your Event.Gives dashboard.
Within Event.Gives, go to the Items tab and locate an item that sold. Then click Get Certificate.
Once your invoice is paid, winning bidders are automatically emailed their certificates, which contain redemption instructions.
Note: An invoice is available as soon as any TravelPledge item has a winning bid with a status of PAID. If you sell additional items, your unpaid invoice will update with the new sales. If you had already paid your invoice, we'll create you a new invoice for the additional items.
What if we selected TravelPledge experiences in Event.Gives but they didn't sell?
There's no need to alert us that your selections didn't sell. We'll automatically remove them from your event 60 days after your auction close date if we don't have winning bid information.
