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://events.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 status. Even if your auction is in Setup mode, you can still obtain your auction website URL to share with others. Simply go to your auction settings and head to the INFO tab.
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.
GET A SHORT URL FOR YOUR AUCTION
If you feel like your auction URL is too long, you can generate your own short URL. The short URL will link to your auction website as well.
For example, if your auction was called "The Best Auction Ever", your URL for your event would be: https://events.handbid.com/auctions/the-best-auction-ever/
However, if you wanted a shorter version, we could create a short code (e.g. "bestever") and that URL would be: http://handbid.app.link/bestever
You can enter your short URL and request it under "Info" in the auction settings.
Once the URL is accepted, the request button will change to a "Copy" button to allow you to copy the URL to your clipboard and use elsewhere.
