Questions About Posted Items
Each auction has a contact person for the seller. If you have any questions about the merchandise being sold, please contact the seller's contact person.
How to Enter Your Bids
You need to begin by selecting the auction that you are interested in viewing. When the bidding for the auction is open you will have the opportunity to enter a regular bid or maxbid for each item. Enter your bid amount, select the type of bid that you wish to make and click submit.
If you enter a maxbid the system will automatically bid on your behalf up to your maxbid amount. For example, you originally placed a Maximum Bid amount of $65.00 and now you want to increase the maximum bid to $120.00, all you need to do is submit another bid for the $120.00 bid in the "Maximum Bid" box.
Our Maximum Bidding Tool will allow you to increase your Maximum Bid. For example, you originally placed a Maximum Bid amount of $65.00 and now you want to increase the maximum bid to $120.00, all you need to do is submit another bid for the $120.00 bid as a "Max Bid". As long as your previous Maximum Bid was at least 1 increment higher then any other bidders' Maximum Bid, the current price on the item will not change.
You may not increase a regular bid, if you are already the high bidder.
What if I'm Outbid?
If you are outbid and the auction is still active, the system will automatically send you an e-mail every time you are outbid. We are not responsable for emails that are not recived, as some email providers may filter the emails you recieve.

Each event will end at a particular time. Nevertheless, we use an auto-extend feature. With this feature, the bidding will maintain open on any item that has received a bid within the last 5 minutes. Once 5 minutes has lapsed without any bidding activity the bidding on the item will be closed. Each item may continue to extend as long as there is bidding activity.
