On both tablet and phone options we offer competitive and sealed bids or a mix of both!
Guests can view the items in the auction by scrolling through the ‘LOTS’ page and clicking on a lot to view the full description, any reserve and the option to place a bid. Each guest must complete the registration process to enable them to bid.
When using the tablet option at an event users must register, they can use any tablet in the room to do so. Prior to the event the guests names can be pre-loaded if provided in the correct csv format.
Guests will need to click on their table number, then their name, if pre-loaded (if not they enter their name at this point), telephone number, email address and create a 4 letter/digit password which they will then use to bid.
If your guest does not want their name to appear on the leaderboard they can opt to bid anonymously.
To bid your guest will need to click on the lot. At this point they will see how much they are required to bid (to reach a reserve or outbid previous bidder). They will then be able to enter the bid amount, enter their password and place their bid.
On the sealed bids option they will simply be told their bid has been accepted if it’s above the reserve. Reserves are set to go up in increments depending on the value of the item. All leading bids will be displayed on the tablet as well as on the live scrolling leaderboard. When using sealed bids the display will just show that bids are being made without showing the amount.
