Bidder Access Tokens

A bidder access token is a link in an email that allows the bidder to access the auction web site and bid without having to sign in or even set up a password. Using bidder access tokens can make getting your bidders online much smoother. A bidder access token can be sent from several places including the Send Access Tokens. They can also be sent directly to a bidder from the check-in page or sign up. You can add a Generate Access Token element to your web site so bidders can go to the web site and request the email themselves. See Bidders in Online Auctions.
