Registration is a two step process
Set up your profile. Click on "New Bidder" and enter the required information.
Once you have created a profile you can then register for the auction you are interested in bidding in.
To place a bid on an item, you must first be a registered user of the site and be logged into your account. In the box on the right side where it says “place bid”, enter the amount of your bid and hit enter. If you have the high bid you will see a notice on the screen. If someone has placed a higher max bid, you will see a notice that you have been outbid. You always have the option to raise your bid.
If a bid is entered in the last 2 minutes of the time closing of an item, the closing time will be extended by 2 minutes to ensure sufficient time for bidders to submit their bids. Dynamic Closing will continue until no bids are placed within 2 minutes.
The Terms & Conditions are different for each one of our auctions. When you register for our auction you are required to acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by the Terms & Conditions prior to being able to bid on an item. Another way to see them is in the item listing, the box below the description is where the Terms & Conditions is located.
