Lorraine Loots

"After many years struggling to figure out how to run auctions in the Instagram comments section, I'm so relieved that HiTide has made it incredibly easy to launch auction drops. Finally a simple and easy way to run private auctions on IG! Total game changer."

Danielle Clough

"I have wanted to auction my work for years, but every option I found was either too complicated or I had no autonomy over the process. HiTide made it simple and seamless by using private message-based sales. I am still ecstatic over the success of the auction, and already making work for the next one!"
