You can limit who bids on your auctions by turning on the option to only allow registered users to bid. You must also have your site to accept new users via your general Settings in WordPress.
Once you’ve done the above the plugin will ask all bidders to register or log in to bid.
The Request to Bid feature is activated once you activate the registered users only option. Request to Bid allows you to further segment bidders based on a permission to bid given to them upon request.
Users can navigate to any live auction they are interested to bid in and request to bid on it. Once they do so you will see their username in Manage Bidders tab. Here you can decide to give them permission or not. You can also set the system to automatically accept all requests, you can always remove permissions for any user at any point of time.
