# Event Phone Number

This will be the number used for texting messages to and from. See Texting Set Up for more information.

Note

Phone numbers are only associated directly with a single auction at a time although they can be used for any event managed by the organization.

# Text Messages

Text credits are shared across all events associated with an organization. The number of "Current Text Credits", "Texts Sent", and "Texts Received" will be summarized in this section.

# Text Based Registration

  • Assume bidder's phone# is text capable
    A bidder can have a phone# and a cell phone# set. If this option is enabled then texts will be sent a bidder's phone# if the cell phone# is not specified. Otherwise only bidders with a cell phone# set will receive texts.

  • Allow bidders to register by text message
    If this option is enabled then bidders will be able to register by texting 'register name' to the auction phone number.

  • Automatically register bidders when they bid/donate:
    If this option is enabled then bidders will be registered automatically if they participate in bidding or donate to the auction.

  • Allow bidders to associate their bidder# by texting:
    If this option is enabled then bidders will be able to associate their cell phone with their bidder number by texting 'claim bidder#' or 'claim email' to the auction phone number.

  • Include a payment link in the response to Donate Messages
    When a bidder texts in a donation, when enabled this will automatically include a link for them to pay online (requires credit card processing be enabled).
    This will add a pay at <link> part to the "response message".

  • Response message when a donation is successful
    Specify how the system responds to someone texting in a donation. The default message can be modified to some extent.

    Donation of {{ Amount | currency }} successful!
