BYOB (bring-your-own-bidder) auctions for influencers and artists.
Most auction sites provide 3 services: payment processing, access to bidders, and use of their auction engine.
But if you already have an audience, you can Bring Your Own Bidders (BYOB).
eBay isn't the best place for your services anyway.
And with Bitcoin, you can Be Your Own Payment-processor (BYOP).
Why pay for more than you need?
Paddle is not a payment processor, nor do we want to be.
The deposit required to bid is held non-custodially on the lightning network, and refunded immediately when the bidder is outbid.
Twitter Login enables a seamless experience for your social followers.
Bidders can choose a nickname or remain anonymous, so that even the seller will not know their identity (unless they win).
Bitcoin has no borders, so neither does Paddle. Reach bidders from around the world!
