GO PAGE FEATURES

Starting at the top left panel, here is a breakdown of each feature:

BidPal: This will take you to the Giving Center Welcome screen, where you can browse the auction, and sign in with your email and password to bid alongside your guests!

Planner: Log in to the back-end of the system with your email address and password. You can access Planner on your tablet or computer, but your smartphone is not supported.

SmartPay: Access SmartPay, your Registration and Checkout software, with your PIN.

NOTE: If you are using Audio Jack swipers, you will launch SmartPay through the BidPal SmartPay App you downloaded on your iPad or iPhone. They will not work via the Go Page.  Audio Jack swipers are only compatible with iDevices running iOS 9 or greater.

Spotter Tool: The Spotter Tool allows volunteers to quickly enter paddle raise donations and live auction winner assignments on any device. Log in with your event PIN.

Scoreboard: Use this link to engage guests and launch the BidPal scoreboard. Enter your event PIN and press the F11 key to enter full-screen mode.

Event Admin Tool: The Event Admin Tool displays key real-time statistics, such as Silent Auction Proceeds, Donation Proceeds, Items with No Bids, etc. You can also rescind accidental bids and purchases with this tool. Log in with your event PIN.

Kiosk: Use this to launch the BidPal kiosk on any tablet or laptop that you want to use as a public bidding station. Always use this link for public kiosks because it will automatically log off guests after 2 minutes of inactivity. Guests will be required to sign in with their email address and password.

Bid Clerk: Use this to launch another version of the BidPal kiosk to be used as a private bidding station, supervised by volunteers. Guests will be able to log in and bid with their last name and last four digits of their phone number. 

Training Videos: Use this link to access volunteer training videos.

Backup Bid Sheets: The backup plan enables you to quickly print backup paper bid sheets with the current high bidder and bid amount listed for each silent auction package.
