Auction Software Crash Course: FAQ

How do I choose the right bidding app for me?

Decide which features are a must-have for your organization. Make sure your bidding app and auction software provider is secure, mobile-friendly, and ready to offer support. From payment processing to gamification, the platform you choose should offer everything you need to make your auction stand out. Limit the number of third-party platforms and maximize your profits by investing in a comprehensive bidding app that comes equipped with all the tools you need to run a successful mobile auction.

Why should I use auction software?

Compared to their in-person counterparts, online auctions take a lot of behind-the-scenes work, streamlined by dedicated software. Auction software mitigates these challenges and offers a variety of benefits over traditional silent auctions, such as allowing guests to place bids faster, receive immediate updates on their items via push notifications and text updates, and ensure their bids are always legible and valid. 

Beyond attendee engagement, your organization can also leverage auction software to monitor your item catalogue and view every bid as soon as they’re submitted. Determine which items perform the best, draw attention to high-value bidding wars, and boost revenue at your auction.

Whether you’re running a penny auction (which requires bidders to pay upfront, whether they win or lose) or a more traditional auction, online auction software keeps everything streamlined and organized. Make paper bidding a thing of the past!

What is auction software?

Auction software empowers organizations to run online auctions at both digital and in-person events. It allows event organizers to create virtual catalogues of auction items that guests can bid on in real-time from their computers or smartphones, no matter where they are.

Auction software streamlines all the backend processes of auction management. It gives you a central location to plan your event, promote auction items, register bidders, assign paddles and tables, check guests in and out, collect performance data, message guests, and more. Intuitive solutions (like Handbid) offer additional features like livestreaming and gamification tools that can take your auction to the next level!
