Some organizations sell spots or sign-ups to dinners, themed parties, or other outings. Guests like to know who has already signed up before purchasing. Instead of having a clipboard to manually track purchasers, you can sell spots and show who is attending directly on BidPal devices.
HOW TO SET UP
Each sign-up or class party should be entered as a separate fixed price package in myBidPal Planner.
Go to Packages > Manage Packages and click Add.
Select Fixed Price as the Auction Mode.
Enter package information, including package #, name, description, donor, and value. Upload a photo, if desired. Choose Multiple for # Available for Sale, and enter the Quantity or total number of spots available for purchase.
Check the box next to Display Attendee List if you want guests to see who has already purchased or signed up.
Enter your custom buttons/deals (ex. 1 ticket for $20, 2 tickets for $30, etc.). Check the Other Allowed checkbox if you want guests to be able to purchase any number.
Click Save. Repeat for each Fixed Price sign-up or class party.
HOW IT LOOKS
On mobile bidding devices, guests can click the View Attendee List button to see a list of all attendees who have already purchased the package, or signed up.
