Do guests have to register to bid online?
To place online bids, guests are required to have a bidder record that contains an email address.
When a guest registers online, a bidder record is created in the system with their email and password.
Guests can be entered manually on the dashboard and be sent a bidder invitation (to create a password) or an access token (no password is entered) to access the online website.
Only one bidder record should be created per email address - unless the bidders are linked (share the same bidder#). If two "unlinked" guests try to sign in using the same email address, the software can't identify which bidder is trying to sign in and will decline access .
