As the Auction Admin you have a few options on how to get your guests registered and ready to bid.
Pre-register your guests
If you have a contact list with your guest's name, email AND phone number, you can pre-register their bidder account by uploading their information into the Attendee area of your Auction Dashboard and scheduling a welcome text message.
**Please see How To Add an Attendee HERE.
When you have your completed list in the Attendee area you will schedule a welcome text message which is pre-labeled as “Auction Starting Soon." Your text messages are located under Auction Options > Text Messages.
When the guest receives their welcome text, they will also receive a link to your auction. When they click on the link, they will be directed into their own bidder account and ready to participate in your auction.

Share your Auction URL
You can share your auction URL with your audience via an email blast and allow your guests to register a bidder account independently on their computer. Your auction URL can be found on your auction dashboard or from Invite & Promote > Links & Widgets > Send Auction Link.
