If you have added an item to your auction AFTER it opens, then Handbid will keep the item in a PENDING state. We do this to make sure that your item is not accidentally bid on before you are ready to open it. Since Handbid is a real-time system, adding an item will immediately make it available to bidders on the app and online as long as you OPEN it. Just adding the item will NOT automatically open it. You must change the status after you have created the item.
Once you have added your item and it is ready for bidding, simply edit the item and change its status to OPEN.
