Event Ticketing

Streamline checkin by selling tickets through Handbid. Guests can purchase tickets, apply discount codes and get setup for your event well in advance!


IPhone & Android Support

We support the latest versions of iOS (iPhone or iPod Touch) and Android devices. It’s easy for users to download the app to their phone and participate in the auction in real time.


Event iPads for non-smartphone users

Guests who are not tech savvy or don’t bring their phone can simply use the Handbid iPad kiosk app at the event. Put these on the table or have bid-helpers roam with them. Handbid App for iPad easy to operate & designed to accommodate multiple users.


Integrated payment system

The choice is yours with Handbid’s integrated payment system. You can:

  • 1) Collect credit card information in the beginning for automatic processing at the end
  • 2) Get card information on file, but allow bidders to approve the transaction at the end
  • 3) Only request card information and payment by phone at the end

Easy auction item management

The Handbid auction manager allows you to manage all of your items in one place. It’s no problem to make quick edits or even add items at any point – even after the event starts.


Real-time notifications

There’s no need to navigate web pages on a mobile phone or wait for a text message to arrive. Bidders receive messages instantly through the app.


Handbid TV with real-time stats and updates

The Handbid TV functionality that’s built into the iPad app allows you to configure and display live data like high bids or total bidding amounts on a big screen for everyone to see.


Automated receipt generation and checkout

At the end of the auction, Handbid automatically tallies winners and generates invoices in a matter of seconds. Typically, winners are notified of the items they have won by text message. They can then review their invoice and pay from their phone.

What Clients Say

Handbid was a big hit at our Silent Auction! Everyone loved it! Overall, we give it rave reviews all around, from us (using the manager side) to all the bidders (using the app)! I think it truly enhanced our event and helped us reach our goal! We cannot say thank you enough!

“The auction was a huge success! Guests and staff could not stop talking about how easy Handbid was to use. Thank you so much!”

“Teaming up with HandBid not only significantly exceeded our Mattingly Charities fundraising expectations last night, it provided a very enjoyable auction experience for our event team and attendees. Thank you Jeff Porter and your HandBid team for all your support and extraordinary customer service.” Don Mattingly / Manager Miami Marlins

The event and app went great!  Everything went extremely smoothly and I was not only pleased with our success, but that of the app.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I can’t imagine ever doing an auction again without HandBid.  I was nervous to do this, but when I looked and at all the auctions HandBid had done, I realized that even if I don’t know what I’m doing, clearly YOU DO.

We threw this Event together in a two-week time span with 5 items initially. Because of the ability to easily add items online, we were adding items as the event was starting, for a total of 51 items.  That gave us a ton of additional revenue that a table auction couldn’t have managed.  We raised over $32,000 from the auction, and $75K from the event because the online auction was such a big draw and the buzz about your app so powerful. We found out after this closed that about 75% of our winners weren’t even at the auction.  All over town, people at other fundraisers, on the train home, sitting at home with their kids, were participating in our auction!

And to the customer service component, you should probably consider renaming this app HandHeld, because that’s what we got—our hand held throughout the entire process. Your people were accessible, informative, friendly and it made all the difference.  Diana and Kelly were sensational.  Diana was boarding a flight to another auction and took the time to talk me through last minute questions.

Now that I know the value of this app, I would have paid 5X the price for what we received because it enabled us to reach a massive audience and display things professionally and consistently.


I have been doing silent auctions for years, always using the paper bid sheets and have been successful with them. When I found Handbid and realized that the process could get easier and it would make my auction more successful, I was blown away. Even people who were not at the auction could participate in the bidding! and the ease of learning the product was incredible. Two thumbs up for this program!
