This is the biggest stage of the listing process. In this step, you can set the following:
Standard Auction - This is a single quantity auction
Dutch Auction - This enables you to list a multiple quantity auction, for example if you have 100 pens to sell you can list all of these together in a single lot. Bidders will be able to select how many they wish to bid for.
You can select your preferred auction currency using the drop down menu available
This field is only active if listing a Dutch auction, please see above for an explanation of this listing type
Auction Starts At:
This requires you to enter the minimum bid you are willing to accept, you can also set a reserve price to ensure you do not sell the item for this amount. Please see below for more information on this.
Enabling a reserve price affectively means you will not sell the item for less than the amount set, for example you can set the start price at $5.00, but only accept winning bids over $50.00. Should a bid be placed for $49.99, the item will close without a winner.
Buy out allows you to set an amount you are willing to sell the item for - straight out. For example, you can set the start price to $10.00, but offer interested parties the option to buy the item immediately for $100.00.
You can also list buy out only auctions. These auctions remove all bidding options, meaning the listing can only be purchased for a set amount. To set a buy out only auction, you need to set the buy out value to be exactly equal with the start bid.
You can set a price bracket in which you are willing to sell an item for. For example, if you set the price brackets from $15.00 to $100.00, interested parties will be able to offer you an amount within these brackets. You can opt whether to accept or decline these offers at any time via the members area.
This option can be used to set your own custom bid increment, if preferred.
At this time, you may purchase a 'Bold Text Listing' for $1.00. This option will highlight your item on our site to ensure it reaches more visitors.
Set start/end time:
You can either opt to list your item right away and set a defined number of days for it to be live. You also have the option to define your own custom start/end time.
Private auction will hide the bidders identity on the item details page.
To accompany your item listing, you can either upload images from your computer or enter the URL of an image(s) hosted elsewhere on the web.
In addition to images we highly recommend you upload media files, please note only .avi/.mpeg/.mov are supported at this time.
For your convenience, you can opt to have your items automatically re-listed for you. Options are available to allow you to select whether the item should be re-listed if sold and how many re-list attempts should be made.STEP 4

Here you can review your listing and make changes if necessary. Please note you can still edit your listing once live via the members area.STEP 6

The Auction Watch feature notifies you of newly listed auctions which contain keywords you have chosen. For example, if you are looking for a new Digital Camera, you could enter in those keywords from within your members area area. Each time a new auction is listed containing those keywords, you will be notified via email.
The Item Watch feature allows you to keep a close eye on any auction without having to place a bid on it. This feature means you can be kept up to date on how an auction is doing and prepares you to place a winning last-minute bid. You can watch any auction by clicking on the “Watch this item” link on any auction page.
You can use “Buy Out” to purchase any item immediately without having to place a bid. Some sellers offer such an option which can be used at any time until a bid has been placed over any applicable reserve price.
The “Buy Out” option will appear on the item details page. You will be asked to confirm your intention to buy out the item before the sale is concluded. Buy Outs cannot be retracted.

Placing a bid on an item you are interested in couldn’t be easier! When viewing the item details page, you will have two areas from where you can place your bid: one next to the item details and a second at the bottom of the page.
To place your bid, simply enter the amount you wish to bid (e.g. 50.00). Please note no currency symbols are required. The bid will be placed in the auction currency.
Once done, you will be asked to review your bid and you will also be able to view vital item details such as the shipping conditions before confirming your bid. To submit your bid, simply press the “Place Bid” button.
If your bid is high enough to take the lead in the auction, a confirmation message will be displayed to you. However, if your bid has not taken the lead due to a higher proxy bid or not meeting the reserve price, you will be invited to make a further bid.
Once your bid is
placed, it cannot be retracted. Please use caution when bidding!
You can also place a proxy bid. Proxy bidding allows you to place your “High Bid”. At all times, you will only pay the lowest required bid should you win the auction. For example, if the current bid on an auction is $500.00, you can place a proxy bid of $2,000. Should you remain the only bidder you will only pay $500.00. However, should the item receive other bids, the site will automatically re-bid for you (up to $2,000 in this scenario) to ensure you remain in the lead.
