Current Weekly Auction - Closing Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 11:30 pm Atlantic Time

***We are currently experiencing techical difficulties with the auction app. There are 40 live auctions presently, but none are displaying here. We have contacted the app developers and are working on a solution. We expect to have this resolved today. Thanks for your patience.***

 

Welcome to our current weekly auction! Every week, we take 40 listings from our stock and offer them with no reserve, to the highest bidder. The rules are very simple:

  1. All bids will now appear as anonymous, due to concerns expressed by bidders. If you wish to review your bids to see which items you are leading on you can do so by going to your account page. There you will be able to see your bids and whether or not you are still in the lead. 
  2. The minimum bid for any item is $1 CDN.
  3. Bidding is in $1 increments. 
  4. Auto-bids may be placed. Simply enter your maximum and the software will bid automatically for you up to your maximum. Please note that you must select this if you want the auction software to act as your agent, bidding in $1 increments. If you don't select this the software will take your bid as the current bid. 
  5. You will receive confirmation e-mails after your bids have been placed and if you have been overbid.
  6. You are responsible for honouring all bids made. Please respect the integrity of the auction process and do not place a bid unless you intend to honour it in the event that you are successful.
  7. Canadian residents will be charged HST or GST as required by their province.
  8. Unlike e-Bay, Hipstamp or many other online venues this is a true auction in the sense that bidding does not close on an item until 3 minutes after the last bid has been placed. This is done in order to give every interested bidder an opportunity to bid. So, while the target closing time is 11:30pm for all lots, many of these will not close until well after 11:30pm, if they continue to receive bids after 11:27pm.
  9. After the close of the auction, you will be notified as to which lots you were successful on and will be directed to checkout to complete your purchase.
  10. You must be logged in to bid. If you do not have an account, you will have the option of creating one on the login page.
  11. Discount coupons do not apply to auction purchases. 
  12. If you are placing bids in the popcorn bidding period, i.e. after the normal closing time, you should place it as a normal bid, and not as a proxy bid, as it appears that the software does not process proxy bids at this point. 
  13. In addition to point 12 above, please note that the auction program will NOT execute any proxy bids during the popcorn bidding period, regardless of when that bid was placed. In order to bid during this period you MUST bid live using normal bids. 
  14. In the case of ties, the earlier bid always wins. Quite often you may think you are in the lead, when in fact the bid you are seeing is your competing bidder's bid. To check the status of your bids, go to your account. If you have another browser tab open and have your account displayed, you can monitor your bids as the auction progresses.
