Auction Bidding Instructions - This year all bidding will be done via your cell phone!
TOP PRIORITY: Charge and Register Your Cell Phone!
To place bids on auction items, follow the directions below after registering with an AuctionsByCellular staff member (in RED) at the event. ABC staff members will be present at the event to be your “Personal Shopper” if you do not prefer to bid via your cell phone.
If you have a Smartphone:
Just click on the blue link in your welcome text message and it will take you to your personal bidding page. Click on an item you like and place your MAX BID right there. MAX BID: Simply enter the highest price you are willing to bid for the item and the ABC smart system will automatically bid for you up to that maximum amount. If you are just placing the next minimum bid, please keep in mind that another donor may have a max bid in place so you may have to bid the minimum bid multiple times in order to take the lead.
No Smartphone…NO PROBLEM! Bid by Text, IT’S EASY!
To see the current high bid on an item: Press reply to your welcome text and simply text the 3 digit item number. EXAMPLE: “102” then press send.
To place a bid by text on an auction item: Simply text the 3 digit auction item number and your MAX BID amount that you would like to bid. No dollar sign ($) needed. EXAMPLE: “102 300” then press send. You bid a MAX BID of $300 on item number 102.
*** CONTINUE USING THE SAME THREAD OF TEXT MESSAGES DURING THE EVENT... YOU WILL RECEIVE OUTBID NOTIFICATIONS THROUGHOUT ***
