How to Lock Remote Bidding

This article will show you how to disable mobile bidding for your live or silent auction items.

This feature can be used for multiple reasons and these reasons can differ from live and silent auction items. For example for silent auction items, you may still want to display an item on the auction site but do not want to accept bids for the item. For a live auction item, during your live-streamed event, you may want to prevent bids from being accepted online while you place an in-room bid (floor bid).

Enabling the  "Lock Remote Bidding" feature

While creating or editing your live or silent auction item in the "ITEM INFO" tab you can choose to lock your remote bidding.
