Bidding has been made easier with a mobile app. With features such as “Watch this Item” and “Auto Bid”, you will be able to keep a close watch on the auction lots that peak your interest.


Here is a step-by-step guide to registering prior to the event and placing bids.

STEP 1: To get started with mobile bidding, register by providing your name and mobile phone number. Text Gathering21 to 76278. Credit card information will be required in order to bid on any auction lots.

STEP 2: After registering, you will receive a text message including your personal bidding link.

STEP 3: By hitting that link, you now can browse and bid on auction lots, or make a donation.

STEP 4: You can view the lot description by clicking on the image or the current bid.

STEP 5:  If you would like to place a bid, go to the “Place Bid” tab and enter the amount you would like to bid. Then select the green “Bid” button.
Alternatively, you can bid by going to the “Auto Bid” tab, which enables the system to automatically place bids on your behalf up to the designated amount entered.  On the Auto Bid tab, enter the maximum amount you would like to bid, and then select Bid.
If your bid is accepted, you will see a confirmation message. If you are outbid, you will receive a text message notification.

STEP 6: Once the auctions are closed, you have the option to pay via your mobile device.  If you have the winning bid, you will receive a text message with payment instructions. Click the personal bidding link in the message. We kindly ask that if your winning bid is over $10,000 that you not pay via your mobile device. 

STEP 7: Review the items in your cart and select “Click Here to Pay.” You can easily pay with the credit card you entered at registration or select “Pay with New Card” and enter a different credit card. Upon processing, a PAID stamp will appear on your receipt.

STEP 8: You can then select to download or email a copy of your receipt.

STEP 9: If your auction lot is appropriate in size, please plan on verifying payment and picking up your lot just outside of the Founder’s Wing upon exiting the Eagle Hangar.  

STEP 10: Enjoy your lot or experience and we thank you for your participation in The Gathering.
