One of the benefits of using DMAuctions Services is that we were already set up with mobile bidding, through Qtego–making our transition to virtual events even easier for you and your guests! When your event starts, it’s easy to navigate the livestream and bid on silent and live auction items, as well as make donations, participate in raffles, and follow your activity. It’s so simple!

You will receive two texts once you have registered your phone. Click on the link at the bottom of the
2nd text which will take you to the bidding site.

VIEWING OPTIONS

To watch the program/live auction on your TV, use an HDMI cable connected to your laptop/computer, and one of the HDMI ports on your TV. This will allow you to see the program/auction as a group. You will still do the bidding on your phone, tablet, or computer, but you can watch the action on a bigger screen.

Enjoy and Happy Bidding!
