STEP 1: DOWNLOAD THE HANDBID APP
If you have an iPhone or Android, you can download the Handbid app from the Apple iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store. Please note we strongly recommend you “accept notifications from this app” when you open it. This will allow you to get push notifications for “Outbid” messages during the auction.
STEP 2: SIGN UP
Next, you can create an account. From the Handbid App home screen, tap on the “GET STARTED” button and follow the prompts to get set up for bidding. You will be prompted to add your payment information to your profile in advance of bidding. A credit card will be required in order for you to place a bid.
STEP 3: SEARCH FOR THE EVENT
Under "ALL EVENTS", search for “Celebrate Architecture."
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 Handbid system will automatically bid for you until you reach your max. Set a max bid and enjoy your evening!
· NOTIFICATIONS: If you have downloaded 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.
· DASHBOARD: Monitor what you are currently winning and losing on the Dashboard screen in your app or online.
