Credit Card Processing with Spire Payment Solutions

What is Spire Event Processing?

Spire Event Processing is an innovative solution designed to expedite processing bank cards at your auction event.

How does Spire Event Processing work with Auction!?

Your guests swipe their credit cards at check in.  Bid numbers of guests who swiped their credit cards on arrival are downloaded to a plain, CSV file, and Synced withAuction!. These bidders are marked for Quick Checkout.

At the end of your event guests with Quick Checkout invoices pick up their purchased items and go on their way. Additional guests can also swipe credit cards at the cashier using the same Spire card readers.  Final balance amounts are uploaded to the Spire Web Portal from Auction!, typically one to two days after your event.

Once transactions are uploaded and processed, Spire directly deposits proceeds into your organization’s bank account.  Payment records are downloaded from the portal, and automatically recorded in Auction!, reconciling balances.  It’s simple and easy!

Is Spire easy to use?

Yes! Spire has developed an innovative solution using netbooks & card readers in conjunction with a web portal, and they provide these for your event. The netbooks communicate with Spire's web portal via encrypted wi-fi or 3G cell phone signal. Your credit cards are never stored locally. Use a standard USB flash drive to move data to Auction! at your event, and log into the portal in a web browser for post-event processing. No special hardware or drivers are needed for Auction!

What is the cost?

There is a one time fee of $100 to purchase Premium Features for your Auction! V4 software.  Premium Features will be enabled every year thereafter when technical support for V4 is renewed.

Spire Payment Solutions will charge fees for their services which are generally paid post event, after the proceeds are deposited in your organizations bank account.

When do I need to decide?

Spire Payments Solutions would like 3-6 weeks advance notice to set up the merchant account for credit card processing.
