When prompted, confirm the cell phone number that you have on file.
Upon confirmation, you will be directed to the bid area. You should receive an automated welcome text message containing your bidder url within about two minutes. If you do not receive a text message, please notify a volunteer or staff member.
Bidding – Using your Smart Phone
Click on the link found in the automated text message
Notice that the link also contains your bid number. Once logged in, this number will also display on your home screen.
When prompted, confirm your name. If the name displayed is incorrect, please see a bid helper or registration volunteer.
Search packages by number, keyword, category, or pull up packages with no bids by selecting “No Bid Pkgs”
Select Details/Bid to bid on a package
You can bid the next increment, set a max bid, or simply “Watch” packages. If you enter the highest max bid on a package, the system will automatically place bids in your favor until your max bid is reached or until the auction closes. If your bid is lower than the highest max bid on that package, you will be prompted to enter a higher bid.
