  • 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

“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

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!

Everyone loved Handbid. It was so much more convenient than paper and we doubled our revenue!

We used Handbid for our auction and it was a huge hit.  It was the first time we had done mobile bidding and the crowd was totally into it.  Diana was great to work with and their support team was there to answer questions the night of the auction live on the phone. Hands down, we will use them again!

Handbid made our auction so easy! Without bid sheets to monitor and collect, I was free to use the Handbid manager to send out messages to guests and monitor items that were not getting bids. Handbid truly gives you a bird’s eye view of your auction and puts you in control of your end results. It was fantastically simple and convenient!

Handbid not only made the silent auction a lot more fun and engaging for our guests, but also resulted in a significant increase in revenue generated for a great charity.
