Auction Bidding

 

Only items that show the small "Green Gavel" image under the title are Auction listings. The Seller may include a yellow "Auction" banner to highlight their advertisement. See Our Video Tutorial - How to Setup a Firearm Auction - Video "When the seller constructs the Auction, he nominates a "Reserve Price" which is the minimum price that the Auction will accept to finalise the Auction. If the Reserve Price isn't met, then the Auction will close unsold.

The seller also nominates the minimum bid increment dollar value. This is the minimum dollar value a bidder can advance a bid. Usually this is set to a $5, $10, or $20 amount.

 

The seller also sets the maximum bid increment dollar value, which limits the highest bid increase in dollar value. This is usually set to $50 to $150 dollar step increases. The seller specifies the number of days the auction will run when the item is listed. This would normally be 14 to 21 days. Auction listings display the scheduled closing time for the auction, showing the number of days, hours and minutes left until the Auction closes.
