August 2023

June 2023

Forgive us, we've been working hard heads down behind the scenes and haven't had anything newsworthy  to share in a while; glad to be back on the road!

Release Date: June 28, 2023


  • We have expanded our Internationalization efforts to encompass all users and companies.
  • Wavebid has allowed multiple exports from the same workspace to process at the same time. We realize that this may result in potential issues such as duplication of images, failed to delete errors or even duplicated sequence numbers. To avoid this from possibly happening, single exports will only be allowed at one given time for an event.

Bug Fixes:

  • We have corrected an issue where selected payment filters on the Invoice Summary page would reset after navigating away. 

May 2023

Release Date: May 23, 2023


  • Added verbiage to the Export page warning that, when Multi-Day/Multi-Ring is enabled for an event, lots needing to be moved between days/rings should be moved in Proxibid rather than Wavebid. If lots with pre-bids are moved between days/rings in Wavebid directly, those pre-bids will be lost when re-exporting to Proxibid.

  • Improved response time when selecting Auction > Export Auction from the Wavebid Dashboard.


Release Date: May 10, 2023

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected an issue related to the sorting of invoices based on the Invoice Number.
  • Corrected an issue where users were not able to sort invoices by Paddle Number.


  • Improved the speed of invoice search functionality on the Invoices Page.


Release Date: May 3, 2023


  • Updated the footer of Wavebid's static pages to reflect the updated office address. WBAddressFooter.png


April 2023

Release Date: April 19, 2023

  • Corrected an issue impacting the Sales Manager Commission report which resulted in the report failing to load or generating an error.

  • Corrected an issue where the "Unpaid" watermark, 'Pay Now', button, and 'Print' button were not centered on emailed invoices when resized or viewed on mobile devices.

Release Date: April 11, 2023



March 2023

Release Date: March 22, 2023


  • Updated the Columns button menu colors and added a checkbox to better reflect which fields have been selected. NewColumnsButton.jpg
  • Added an image batch for photos of lots that have been moved from one event to another, making it easier to view and delete photo batches.

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected an issue preventing Marketing email templates from being saved or viewed.
  • Corrected an issue on the Unsold Lots list where the options box would close prior to clicking the Apply button.
  • Corrected an invoice issue where the entire Lot Title and Lot Description were being displayed even though the option was selected to only display the Lot Title.


Release Date: March 9, 2023

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected an issue where certain time zones would trigger an error when automatically exporting to Proxibid.

Mobile App:

  • Corrected an issue which was preventing users from being able to use the VIN Lookup tool in the mobile app. Upgraded versions of the app are now available for both iOS and Android.

  • Corrected an issue where the Auction Summary Report was showing the incorrect Passed Lot count.
  • Correct an issue where the Company Category form did not reset when the modal was closed and re-opened.

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected an issue where the 'Pay Now' button on emailed bidder invoices was inconsistently failing to take bidders to the payment gateway to submit payment.


Release Date: February 8, 2023

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected an issue where the All Invoices search was not displaying expected results when using search parameters.
  • Corrected an issue where the Taxonomy/Category field on the Company Category page generated an error message even though the field was valid. 
  • Corrected an issue where changing dates on the Edit Auction page was triggering an error.


January 2023

Release Date: January 25, 2023


  • The Name, Code, and Taxonomy Category fields are now required when creating/editing company categories.

Bug Fixes:

  • Enhanced the date fields across Wavebid to ensure that the selected End Date is after the selected Start Date.
  • Corrected an issue where “Online Checkout Invite” email templates could not be selected as the email template under the Online Checkout tab. Click here for more information relating to Online Checkout.
  • Corrected an issue where the invoice Notes field was not displaying correctly on bidder invoices. For more information on the Notes field, see Editing Invoices.

Release Date: January 11, 2023


  • Added the Invoice Number as an available column on the Priced Inventory Sheet.
  • Changed the way images are exported to BidSpotter to reduce the likelihood of duplicating images that have been exported to GAP more than once.

  • Disabled the Buyer Information Edit link once a payment has been applied to the invoice. Once a payment has been applied to an invoice, the buyer's information (Name, Address, Contact Information, etc.) can no longer be edited. Payment will need to be removed before the buyer information can be edited on the invoice. For more information, see Editing Invoices.

  • Resized the Auction Preview page to allow the horizontal scrollbar to always be visible at the bottom of the page.

  • Changed verbiage on Seller Settlements to reflect "Settlement #" rather than "Invoice #".

  • Added a date picker modal to the All Lots report. Dates previously needed to be manually entered into the Date From and Date To fields.

  • Added a well-defined error message if credentials fail to authenticate when auto-importing sale data and/or bidder data from Proxibid.

    • "Error trying to import results. New token required! Please return to the Proxibid AuctionBuilder Bulk Loader and obtain a new token."

Mobile App:

  • Added rich text editor to correct an issue where HTML was not being displayed correctly in text fields.
    • Updated versions of the Wavebid Mobile app are now available for Android and iOS.

Bug Fixes:

  • Removed the clickable links on the All Auction Summary report as these links were meant to direct users to individual auction results.
  • Corrected an issue where Email Templates without any content in the Template field (email body) failed to send. Now, invoices sent using an Email Template with a blank Template field (email body) will just contain a link to the PDF of the invoice.
