Web-based & live event bidding, too

For bidders who prefer not to use an app, Handbid has a mobile-friendly web interface and tablets available to set up at your event.

Bid from the web

With a single account, bidders can easily find your auction and bid from anywhere. The web interface is as fast and user-friendly as the app and includes real-time push notifications, as well as all the same bidding capabilities.

Bid from tablets at live events

Tablets can be set up as a self-service kiosk, or be run by bid helpers. Use tablets to sell event-only items such as raffle tickets. The interface has full bidding capabilities including item search, checking bids, and real-time updates & messages.

Manage your auction from anywhere


Set up your auction, get silent auction ideas, manage your guest list, create tickets, process invoices, view stats, generate reports, and message guests, all in real-time.

Manage guest lists


Make spreadsheets and paper guest lists a thing of the past. Handbid automatically generates guest list slots and lets you pre-assign paddles, assign tables, scan tickets at the door, checkin guests from tablets or smartphones.
