You can import live event bidders if you want to be able to award items to them specifically. (See How to Award Live Event Items).
Use these resources to import your offline bidders under Close Out > Import Bidders:
- Import Live Event Bidders Template - This CSV file includes all of the required and optional columns for a successful offline bidder import.
- Import Live Event Bidder Formatting Guidelines - The Formatting Guidelines includes column definitions for the Import Live Event Bidder Template, explains what fields are required versus what is optional.
Please note: This process adds your bidders as offline bidders. Offline Bidders cannot place bids online. If they want to bid on online/mobile items, they would need to register and create their own bidder account.
