How to accept a bid - walk in table venues
iBidU lets your customers bid you the price they will pay to get a table at your venue.
1. When they submit a bid through iBidU, it is listed on the home screen under 'Bids', and you will receive a notification you can directly accept their bid from, or you can accept it anytime by tapping on it in the list of bids.
2. If you accept their bid, then both your screens change to the same colour to help find each other (see below).
You see yourself as a blue dot, the other party is a red pin. In the example below, you are seeing the customer screen and you are the red pin.
The customer clicks the credit card button to pay when they are with you just prior to your seating them - they have to wait for you to click an 'Accept' button in the same spot on your own screen before they can pay you - you can still cancel the transaction until now, should you wish.
3. Below is an example of the customer's screen when pay you - at this point the transaction becomes final and you must show them to their table, although you are able to request iBidU to refund them if you wish to.
4. When the customer has paid you, you will receive a confirmation message similar to the one shown below, the transaction is complete.
All completed transactions may be viewed through your Account screen, simply click on the 'Payments Statement' button to see a full list of transactions, from which you can select to view details of any one.
