At In-Person events, you can use Auctria to Check In Bidders as they arrive. From the main Auction Dashboard, click through Bidders > Check-in Bidders under the Actions sidebar menu to open the Bidder Check-in dashboard.


You can search for bidders by entering details such as their last name or a ticket number to find the bidder you want to check in. Click the bidder(s) you want to check in and then click Check-in Selected Bidders.

Check-in Options

  • Additional bidder fields to show in check-in list
    This will allow you to add fields as a comma separated list of bidder fields to show on the check-in page. See Bidder Reference for a list of fields. Also to note, the intent is for "simple fields" to be used here such as Notes or Company for example.


    Added Options fields may not show up without refreshing your browser. In rare cases, it may take a few minutes for caches to clear.
