Enabling Bidders for Online Bidding
Bidders must be enabled for Online Bidding before they can bid on Auction Packages, or make Donations through your unique Bidding Page. Depending on your organization’s needs, we have multiple ways of getting your bidders into Online Bidding.
Under the Bidder tab of each Supporter record, there is a checkbox for Is an Online Bidder.
When the Is an Online Bidder box is checked, the Supporter will have access to begin bidding. This checkbox is automatically checked when:
- The "Enable Online Bidding" feature is used. For more information, see: Mass Enable Online Bidding. Greater Giving’s best practice.
- The guest self-registers for Online Bidding. For more information, see: Online Bidding: Self-Registration
- The guest is checked in through Go Time. For more information, see: Online Bidding: Guest Check-In
