How do I bid on an item?
Once inside the auction tab, click the “view and bid” button. If this is the first time you're bidding on an item, you will be prompted to enter your email address and create a password to login to the auction. You'll also be required to add in your credit card details to place a bid. Once logged in, you can bid on as many items as you wish!
How are the starting bids determined?
The opening bid for each item is set at approximately 30 per cent of the item's total retail value ($CDN). This percentage is an industry standard for silent auctions.
How will I know if I’ve been outbid?
When you are outbid on an item, you will receive an email letting you know you’ve been outbid. You also have the option to enable text notifications for quick updates or browser notifications. And, of course, you always have the option to visit the auction site as much as you want to keep up-to-date with current bids and the status of yours!
How will I know if I’ve won?
When the auction is closed, everyone will receive an email notifying them if they won an item, or not.
When do I pay for the item I won?
It's done automatically! When the auction closes your credit card will be charged for any won items, based on the card details you shared before you placed your first bid. You'll be notified of this charge to your account by email and text notifications.
