Before you can list your first item, you will either need to have an active membership plan in place, or you will be prompted to pay for individual listings before they will appear on our website.
Items are listed in your members area through the List Item form.
Each auction item contains the following information:
Choose one category from the drop down list in the List Item form, or provide the category number in your upload file. If you would like an additional item you may request it from the admin.
Accurately describe your item with a title that can be up to 120 characters long. Good titles will attract attention and help to SELL your item!
Either 1 or more items may be sold at the same time. Multiple quantity (Yankee auctions) must be for the exact same item.
Your description is most important to describing your item and answering potential questions for the buyer. HTML is acceptable.
You may upload as many images as you need with the List Item form or link to an image on another website by providing the complete URL to the image. When linking make sure to use a complete URL beginning with http://. If you aren't sure of your image URL, copy what you have typed into a new browser window and see if your image appears. If it doesn't, check your path and file name as they are case sensitive in most cases.
The Starting Bid will start the bidding on an auction. The item will be considered sold if a bid is received for this amount and no reserve bid is set.
Not available with Yankee Auctions. This amount must be at or higher than the Starting Bid. If a bid reaches this amount it will end the auction immediately and the item will be considered sold.
Boxes are provided for you to enter your Shipping and Payment Terms. HTML is accepted here. You may also set defaults for this form in the Settings and Messages sections of the Seller Tools menu.
You may select a day and time your auction will end from the drop down box on the List Item form.
You may increase the exposure of your auction item by featuring the listing. Additional fees will apply.
Once you have completed the listing form you may start your listing immediately, or start the auction later from the Pending Auctions link in the My Listings Menu.
When your listing has ended notices are sent out to winning bidders immediately. When all of your auctions have ended, or your buyer has completed their buying, you can send a combined invoice through the Checkout system. To do this, follow the link provided in the Sold Item email, or use the Sales Tracker in your members area.
Any listings that are sold and not invoiced can be found in the Sales Tracker. In this area you can see which sales need to be invoiced. Once an invoice has been sent you can access invoices for sending notices and leaving feedback in the Invoices for Sales section.
Listings may be relisted once it is over and notices have been sent. From
the My Listings menu choose one of the Closed Auctions links. You may view your sold
and unsold auctions here, and relist in groups or individually.
The Seller Tools section of the Members Area contains additional tools to help you mamage your listings.
