How Only Online Auctions work?

THE ONLINE BIDDING PROCESS:
• The lot number with its image and description.
• Auction items have a “Place Bid” button next to a box for entering bids and show a “current bid” price.
• Lot items are open to bids for a predetermined amount of time (countdown).
• When time is up, the item is declared “sold” to the highest bidder.
• If the maximum bid you entered is higher than the bids entered by anyone else so far, you become the new high bidder. The system bids on your behalf until you are outbid.
• If your maximum bid is not the highest bid entered so far, the system registers your bid but continues to bid on behalf of the high bidder, automatically outbidding you by one bid increment.
• The system continues to automatically bid on behalf of whoever is the highest bidder at the moment, up to and including their maximum, until the lot auction countdown runs out.
• The system will automatically increase your bid by the bid increment, only if you have been outbid, until it reaches your MAXIMUM BID.
• Changing your bid: You may change your bid at anytime between the posting
date and the closing date, but cannot be deleted
• Once the bid is placed it cannot be cancelled
• Antiquorum cannot be held responsible for errors, omissions in the online system
• Lots in this sale are sold as is and cannot be cancelled or returned
