Web Deployment - Online Auction System - Kiwibid

Press Release

Opening online: 1st September 2003

Kiwibid is a unique auction site that provides non profit organisations with the ability to fundraise without the hassle of planning and financial outlay. We register organisations, pick up their donated items, photograph and describe individual items and they are sold through an online auction process. From the date they are sold, within abut 10 days; the organisations will receive a cheque for the amount raised.

Kiwibid is great for schools, social groups and many more organisations. It appeals especially to those families who seem to have never ending donations for school camps, sport trips and social events, as unwanted items are always easier to find than money! In the meantime we are providing a professional and reliable service to buyers as they only have one payee and all costs are outlined prior to participation in the auction. Delivery guarantees, competitive postage and credit incentives are all available to all who purchase on Kiwibid.

Kiwibid aims to run a successful auction site that will provide financial relief for organisations in communities nationwide while providing buyers with the professional service and quality goods that they need and will enjoy.

The Kiwibid technology framework was designed and developed by doLithe Internet Solutions, a Wellington based firm specialising in the provision of functional business solutions. Working closely with Kiwibid executives, the doLithe team produced corporate branding, online look and feel and web based auction capabilities.

Built on an open source platform, the system offers robust scalability mixed with the flexability of Java and XML. Check out the finished product at or visit to learn more about the providers.
