Riding the Wave: Auction Tube

Auction Tube is one of the most engaging features currently available in Wavebid when it comes to live auctions; it allows you to display the lots currently being clerked on a projector or big-screen display so your buyers can see additional information and photos of the lot. This in turns enables you to obtain higher prices for your lots.

This is how you use it:

  1. From the Dashboard go to your auction workspace, then Accounting > Clerking.

  2. Once there, click on Start Auction Tube to start the stream.

Clerking Grid

  1. Go to the Auction Tube tab. From here you can select a couple of options:

    • Select which ring you want to be featured.
    • Select the background style you would like to have; either a white background or a black background.
  2. To view the stream click Ride the Wave. This will open the stream on the same browser tab you are currently using. If you would like to open the stream on a different tab or browser window you can use the Direct URL shown at the bottom of the page.

Auction Tube will automatically flip through a slideshow of whatever lots in the ring have been pulled up on the clerking grid.

For single lots the system will rotate between all the photos for it

Single Lot Display

For multiple lots it will rotate between the lead photo for each single lot and display the sale type.

Multiple Lot Display

Auction Tube is automatically disabled everyday at midnight so do not worry if you forget to disable the stream.

Congratulations! You’re ready to Ride the Wave!
