Quick Start Guide
Welcome to the Quick Start Guide which will will walk your through the key setup screens for your auction!
If you haven't reviewed the Using Auctria section, then we recommend looking over it first before diving into your own event setup.
You can also explore the Demo Auction to learn how the site works without changing anything in your own account.
Not all the steps will be applicable to every event: you can skip those for features that you are not using.
As you work through the guide it is helpful to be able to answer several questions about your event:
What kind of event is it?
- event based with a traditional silent and/or live auction
- event based with mobile/online bidding throughout
- online only
