Run your auction with Handbid
Handbid is a mobile app and auction management platform designed to make auctions more fun, accessible, profitable, and easy to manage.
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 and tickets. The interface has full bidding capabilities including item search, checking bids, and real-time updates & messages.
Stream Live Video to your Bidders/Guests
With Handbid Live, you can stream live video to your bidders within the Handbid Apps and mobile bidding website! No need for your guests to leave Handbid to access a video feed elsewhere.
Promote items (live auction, silent auction, donations, forSale items) directly under the live stream. This is a great way to do a virtual paddle raise or live auction!
Setup in seconds
Batch import or individually add items and fine-tune how you showcase items on the fly. Handbid automatically generates your auction for you AND even creates display sheets with QR codes for simple item lookup.
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.
Simplify ticketing & check-in
Reduce lines at the door. Manage, generate, and sell printable or digital tickets and scan them right at the door from iPad or iPhone! You can even register bidders and capture credit cards to make checkout easier at the end of the event.
Real time reports & stats
Pull detailed reports showing top bidders, item performance and overall revenue performance in your auction. Export data into spreadsheet format or into beautiful PDFs you can share!
