MobilBid Tips

Here are some helpful tips on how to use the MobilBid auction app:

  • Scroll down the list of items to review. You will see the starting bid or highest bid amount displayed.
  • At the bottom of your screen is a countdown timer – keep your eye on it!
  • Review details on any item by tapping on the item photo or title.
  • Tapping the heart symbol adds items to your ‘favourite’ list. To see your list, tap on the heart on the top menu.
  • Place a bid on an item from within the item detail screen – you can accept the offered minimum bid, or raise it higher.
  • As you go to place your very first bid, you will be prompted to enter a credit card. This is for contactless payment and will help to eliminate the line up at the end of the event.
  • You can set an “auto-bid”, up to a maximum amount you are prepared to pay for a specific item. The platform will bid incrementally on your behalf up to, but never beyond the maximum you set.
  • If you are outbid, you will receive a text and/or email notification.
  • Review the items for which you are the winning bidder by pressing the ‘trophy’ button on the top menu.
  • At the end of the auction, winning bidders will receive a notification containing their invoice and payment confirmation, as well as item pickup instructions.
