"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."

We’re right there at your side. Literally.

Running a hybrid auction doesn’t have to be hard.

When you decide to use Handbid for a hybrid remote/in-person auction, our seasoned team of auction experts shows up, too. We’ll set up at your event site, train your team, and work directly with you to ensure everybody has an outstanding time at your event.

Can you even run a hybrid auction without Handbid?

Good question! Very few auction software vendors can run hybrid events where a live auction accommodates in-the-room guests and remote bidders. Good thing we’re different!

We designed Handbid specifically for in-person and virtual fundraising events. Since the platform supports both of those event types, you’re 100% set to host hybrid auctions for local and out-of-town bidders.
