SOFT CLOSE: Items close every second. To prevent a bidder from 'sniping', all bids made in the last minute of the auction will force an item to stay open for an additional 2 minutes. This will continue until all bidding has ceased.
STRATEGY: It is recommended that you put in the maximum bid when placing a bid online. This does not mean you will have to pay the amount you bid; you only pay one bid more than the next highest bid, and only up to your maximum bid. The software system will play out the bids as you would at a live auction and only use the funds required to beat out the under-bidder at the prescribed bid increment.
NOTIFICATION: You can choose to be notified by email during the auction if you have been outbid.
Please note that outbid notifications are NOT sent out during the last two hours of the sale.
