Click Search in the store header and you'll be displayed a page with all current open products (both for sale and for auction):

Next, click on Auction on the left side of the screen and you'll see all the products available for auction:

The Auction page will display the current highest bid, number of bids, minimum bid accepted and whether the Reserve Price (if set) has been met.

After entering the bid, the buyer will see a screen asking to validate the bid:

The next screen will display a message confirming the bid.

Note: A notification email will be sent each time a bidder is outbid.

See the status of a bid or retract a bid from the Current Bids (Home -> Members Area -> Buying -> Current Bids) menu:

Note: If a bid did not match the Reserve Price (red numbers in the caption above) the auction will continue as set until reaching the Reserve Price or any price above it.

Potential Auction Outcomes

The bidder with the highest bid, equal or above the Reserve Price, is considered the winner of the auction.


The bidder's highest offer has been overtaken by a higher offer. The bidder loses the auction.

Under Reserve

The Reserve Price has not been met, therefore the auction closes without selling the item. It is possible to re-list the item for the same or for a reduced Reserve Price.
