2. Bid via SMARTPHONE: Click the BLUE link in your welcome text message and it will take you to your personal bidding page. Click on an item you would like to bid on.

To have the Gesture smart system automatically bid for you to a designed amount, please select AUTO and enter a higher amount. The system will bid for you incrementally up until your designated amount only if someone bids against you.
3. Bid via TEXT:
To see current bid, reply to your welcome text and simply text the 3 digit item number. Example: “102” then press send. Then, text the 3 digit item number and amount you would like to bid. No dollar signs ($) needed. Example: “102 300” then press send. You placed a $300 bid on item number 102.
