When guests arrive, they’ve already got a paddle and a credit card on file

Using Handbid, you can front-load all guest registration information  so there’s almost nothing else to do after a guest arrives. All you have to do is hand them a glass of champagne – and point them to the auction area!

Ticketing and registration features put your entire check-in process on autopilot. From the moment guests show up, they can bid on items and give with total ease.

"Our fundraising increased by more than seven times with Handbid.

When we used paper bid sheets our auction raised $3,000. When we started using Handbid, our auction raised over $23,000."

Here’s how ticketing and registration work in Handbid

number 1

Set up your event in Handbid, specify a ticket price, and make tickets available for sale.

number 2

Guests purchase tickets online and enter registration information.

number 3

Guests can edit their own guest list, freeing up your staff from having to track down guest info before the event

number 4

Guests’ credit card information is securely stored, so they don't have to provide it again.

number 5

When guests arrive at your event, they’ve got a paddle waiting for them.

number 6

Guests pay invoices and check out right from their devices – it only takes seconds.

Get all the boring stuff done before the big day

Self-service registration ensures you have all the guest info you need before your event begins.

When guests show up, there’s virtually nothing for them to do! You’ve already got their information and payment info. After you scan their tickets, they can grab a physical paddle and start mingling.

The best part for you? Ticketing and guest registration is integrated with your auction activities, minimizing your admin workload.
