Auction Tips

Whether you are bidding online or in the Handbid App, here are some easy tips to help:

Max bid

This is the max you are willing to spend for an item and the Handbid system will automatically bid for you until you reach your max. Set a max bid and enjoy your evening!


If you have the Handbid App and accepted push notifications, you will be notified by push notifications when you are outbid on an item. If you don’t have the app you will receive text messages from Handbid.


Monitor what you are currently winning and losing on the Dashboard screen in your app or online.
