Silent Auction

To place a bid, you will need to Register for an Account


Once you are registered, in order to place a bid, click the BID NOW button below the item of your choice. This will take you to a new screen. From here you will have two options. You can either outbid the previous bidder (a), or buy the item outright at the listed price (b).

a) Outbidding the previous bidder: Choose this option if you wish to bid more than the last bid and be in the lead for this item.

The Current Bid displayed shows the latest bid someone has placed on the item.

The dollar amount displayed below Current Bid shows the amount of the next bidding increment for the item. You are welcome to simply bid the amount displayed by clicking BID. If you wish to bid more than the amount displayed, use the arrows to increase the amount of your bid, then click BID.

You will receive the following message at the bottom of your screen following your successful bid: Successfully placed a bid for “Item”!

b) Buying the item outright: Choose this option if you’d like to buy the item outright at the “Buy it Now” price as shown.

From the main page, click the BID NOW button below the item of your choice. 

Click BUY NOW FOR $ [Prices listed may vary]. This will take you to a new page to complete your purchase.

You will be able to view your cart at the top right hand corner of the screen for the item(s) you are buying now.

You will only be charged for the items you are buying now, and not for items that you have simply bid on.
