HOW TO BID
Once you have completed a registration on the campaign, you will receive the welcome text message, linking you to the items to browse, bid or buy.
Click on the Blue link in the Welcome text to be directed to the Items page.
View Items by category or search by Item number or name.
Click the item of interest to view the description as well as the current bid and or price.
The system will auto-populate the bid amount based on the set increment for the item.
Choose to bid at the set amount or higher.
HOW TO PLACE AN AUTO-BID
Allow the system to automatically bid up to a designated amount for you. The system will bid incrementally up to the amount designated as long as someone else places a bid against you. If no one bids against your auto bid, the price remains the same.
Click the item of interest
Click the Auto Bid tab
Enter in the maximum amount you would like to bid
Note: When two bids are placed for the same amount, the bid placed first based on the timestamp wins. Timestamps are set when the initial bid is placed, for auto bids this is when a maximum was set not when the system prompted the bid to win.
This is a preventative measure for auction sniping.
HOW TO TEXT TO BID
As a user, you have the ability to send texts to place bids on silent auction items.
