Once you create your auction and save it, it will generate a link you can share with your guests. Your Auction will be listed both on our website at https://www.handbid.com/auctions/ as well as in our mobile apps.
However, this link WILL NOT BE VISIBLE TO ANYONE until you put your auction in either Preview, PreSale or Open modes. Even if your auction is in Setup mode, you can still get your WebSite URL to share with others. Simply go to the menu at the top right of the auction manager and select "Auction Website".
This will open a new tab in your browser with the website. You can then copy this URL and share it with others.
IMPORTANT! The URL for your auction is created when you create your auction. You can change the name of your auction, but your URL will stay the same as the original URL.

If you wanted a shorter version, we could create a short code (e.g. "bestever") and you could then have a URL that would be:
To get a shortcode, simply email email@example.com and ask for one to be created for you. Please allow 48 hours for the creation of this shortcode.
