Bidding Tips

1. Your Device

Please make sure to bring a web-enabled device to the event. We recommend using your own cell data at the event, and please be assured that the Givergy system uses only a small amount of data (approx. the same as a Google search.)

2. Registering

When you register, make sure to enter your cell phone number so that you can easily receive notifications regarding bidding and payment.

3. Max bidding

You have the option of entering a max bid so that bidding is even easier. Simply place your standard bid and then place a max bid for the highest amount you are willing to pay for that item, and the system will bid on your behalf.

4. Item pick-up

Items will be available for pickup at the event starting at 8 pm. Items not collected on-site at the event must be collected from the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland offices (34 12 AVE E, Vancouver, BC V5T 2G5) by Friday, June 1st, 2018.
