How to add sponsor tickets and manage the guest list.

This article will cover how to add a ticket to a sponsor and how they can manage their guests after the ticket was purchased.

After the ticket purchase

You will learn how to empower your sponsors to add their own guests

More likely than not you want your sponsors to invite their own guests with the correct guest information (name, email, and phone number). This will show your sponsors how to add their guests to the Handbid site.

If you have purchased a ticket that includes multiple people, then Handbid may prompt you with the question "Who's Coming?".  When you see this, this is an opportunity to update your guest list.

Otherwise, you can also go to either your dashboard (below)


or to your menu where you can select tickets (below)


Either case will show you a list of your tickets purchased and any associated guests.  If you do not see your guests listed, PLEASE contact your auction manager to inquire about your purchase. 

Otherwise, the guest list will show the names of every guest.  Names that are green have been at least partially completed with a first/last name.  Fully completed guest info would also include an email address and a phone number. 

Incomplete guests will appear in pink.  Click the pencil next to their name to add their information. 


When you are done, refresh the page and you should see your edits updated. 

Adding an email address will allow you to send an invite to your guest to get registered.  Adding in a mobile phone number will further complete their setup and speed up checkin at the event! 

Adding guests from the back end

Warning: If you add a ticket purchaser's guests from the back end they will not be sent an invitation like they would from the user side.
