How to Submit Your Bidding Form

The lots of an auction can be viewed and bid on from two types of pages, what we call *multi* and *full* pages. A multi page shows a number of lots in a list, while a full page shows only one lot. On a multi page, each item has an estimated price displayed in a form field, and next to it a button labelled "bid".

On a full page, the item also has its estimated price displayed in a form field, and next to it a button labelled "bid".

Upon bidding for a lot, whether from a multi or full page, am alert will pop up confirming the details of your bid. Important: This is only the first step for submitting bids. The bidding sheet works like an online shopping cart, so you will have an opportunity to review and change your bids before submitting them.

After making your first bid you can then carry on viewing the lots -- and making more bids the same way you made the first one. Your bidding sheet is stored until you send it, and you can view it at any point by clicking on the "Your Bidding Sheet" link that appears on all multi and full pages. To return to the items, click on the "Continue Bidding" button.

When you've made all your bids and are ready to submit your bidding sheet, click on the "Submit Sheet" button. You are taken to a page entitled "Your Info" with a form. Please complete all the form fields. (Currently the system does not remember this personal information and you will need to submit all this data again next auction.)

Upon completing the Your Info form and pressing the button to continue, you arrive at the Send Sheet page. Here you have an opportunity to review your bids once more, and, if you like, add a general percentage by which to increase your bids should you be outbid. When you are ready, press the "Send Sheet" button.
