Silent Auction Mobile Bidding
This year, you will use your very own smart phone to participate in the Silent Auction. Any phone works where you can receive a text message and can connect to the internet (including iPhone, Android, and Windows - all smart phones work with this platform).
No bid sheets will be used to allow for easier access to items for bidding! You will have access to volunteer helpers who can walk you through bidding or you can bid with a volunteer on a Surface Tablet located at the Mobile Bidding help station.
This is the first screen you see when you log in by clicking the link from your email or text message. This screen allows you to confirm your identity before proceeding to the bidding interface.
You can enter the item number or search criteria in the red box. An item number lookup takes you directly to the item where you can view details. Entering search criteria takes you to a result screen where you can pick your item. You can view your bidding history and watch list by pressing "My Bids" and you can also see the items with no bids by using the "No Bid Items" button. You can also filter items by category for a quick look at all the items in a given category.
You can see the current bid, the closing time, a photo and details about the item. You can type the next bid amount or any amount above that and the system will bid for you up to that amount. We'll send you a text message if you're outbid. You can also "Watch" the item without placing a bid. We'll put it on your "My Bids" page so you can keep track of the bidding on that item and jump in when ready!
