How It Works

Our Native App

A Smart way to leverage technology

  • handbid-phones
  • auction-manager
  • ipad-with-drinks

IPhone & Android Support

We support the latest versions of iOS (iPhone or iPod Touch) and Android devices. It’s easy for users to download the app to their phone and participate in the auction in real time.


Event iPads for non-smartphone users

Attendees who show up with a BlackBerry, Windows Phone or a flip phone can simply use the Handbid iPad kiosk app at the event. The app is easy to operate and designed to accommodate multiple users. When iPads are shared, bidders can request to receive text messages on their cell phones when they are outbid.


Integrated payment system

The choice is yours with Handbid’s integrated payment system. You can:

  • 1) Collect credit card information in the beginning for automatic processing at the end
  • 2) Get card information of file, but allow bidders to approve the transaction at the end
  • 3) Only request card information and payment by phone at the end

Easy auction item management

The Handbid auction manager allows you to manage all of your items in one place. It’s no problem to make quick edits or even add items at any point – even after the event starts.


Real-time notifications

There’s no need to navigate web pages on a mobile phone or wait for a text message to arrive. Bidders receive messages instantly through the app.


Handbid TV with real-time stats and updates

The Handbid TV functionality that’s built into the iPad app allows you to configure and display live data like high bids or total bidding amounts on a big screen for everyone to see.


Automated receipt generation and checkout

At the end of the auction, Handbid automatically tallies winners and generates invoices in a matter of seconds. Typically, winners are notified of the items they have won by text message. They can then review their invoice and pay from their phone.


Extended bidding

We’ve all experienced the frustration of last-second bids coming in on eBay or when volunteers are pulling bid sheets. Handbid has the perfect solution. When you turn on extended bidding functionality, any items with last-minute bids will be kept open for bidders to battle it out until bidding activity ceases.

What Clients Say

Handbid is exactly what any auction needs to be able to power-up to the next level.  Our well established paper auction added 10% easily and will likely add as much next year now that everybody absolutely loves using the app or the Handbid Bidpad.  Handbid freed our auction from paper on tables and let everyone participate on their own terms.

The training, support, and ease of use is just simply amazing.  I can’t say enough about the features, the functionality, and the folks at Handbid.  Thank you Scott and Jen!

I cannot think of one time during my experience over the last two weeks when I had anything less than a positive experience with Handbid employees. They are professional, straightforward, caring and clearly proud of the work they do by focusing on Handbid’s clients.

The intuitiveness of the app originally attracted us to Handbid, but the key factor in our satisfaction was definitely the human element – the support from the team and their attentiveness.

One thing that sets Handbid apart is its customer service. These guys work hard for us at Tennyson. I remember one time where they left their own event to come to help us at ours.

Handbid was incredibly helpful…they even showed up halfway through our Gala with a team to assist us with the closing of our auction. They continued to go above and beyond throughout the entire process, we highly recommend them
