  • Restrict access to previously registered bidders

    • This option can be used when you want to make a particular set of purchases, only available to people already registered and signed in as bidders. In order for this to be useful to you, you must have a registration element on a different page configured to include registration for online bidding.
  • Always confirm bidder details, even from registered bidders

    • This option requires that the contact information is displayed and accepted before continuing through the steps. The default is off
  • Use as the default registration element

    • It is possible to have the purchase/registration elements on multiple pages. If the user clicks on the Register link in the menu, or if you send out bidder invitations by email, then these will open the page that has the default registration element.

    • Generally this setting is set-up correctly by the template and you won't need to change it.

Online bidding

If you are using the online bidding feature, then bidders will need to set-up an account so they can return to the website to bid on the item multiple times.

Turning this option on, will provide an inclusive step in the process for the bidder to set up a password for their account, if there is not already one associated with their email address.

If you are just selling tickets then this step is unnecessary.
