Vendors can list products for the next auction at any time, if the next scheduled auction is in 24 hours or less the listing will be held over for the next auction.
You can list bulk lots of items or individual items, there is a section for everything.
Our standard terms and conditions all still apply to each auction item as well as for all vendors and Buyers. These will also include but are not limited to shipping or local pickup only options, product conditions and all other terms and conditions as well as our Code of Ethics.
Ensure you pay attention as to where the items are listed when purchasing, do not assume you can just pick them up locally. That said however our vendors will ship all items they sell. Our site is multivendor, we have sellers or vendors in Canada and the USA. Our buyers may also be from the USA or Canada.
Auction items will start and end with a 3-minute starting gap. Therefore, items will continue to add every 3 minutes and then will end in 48 hours every 3 minutes. All items run for 72 hours between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM MST. Therefore, new items come online all day for the first day or 2 days of each auction depending on how many items there are. There are 160 listings per 8-hour day.
Please note when bidding if there are 6 items for that product your bid is 6 times the quantity of items and you must take them all.
Vendors can easily convert and schedule items for an auction from the product page. If the item does not sell it can also be converted back. When converting back to a regular listing you will be in full edit mode the same as when you originally list the product. ENSURE you use the dropdown to reselect the type of listing when reloading it as a regular product and adjust pricing etc!
Request A Product Guidelines:
Request a product can only be utilized if you have a vendor account. We want to ensure you are qualified to request a product with correct information and specifications.
It is basically the same a listing a product, the only difference is you select request a product in the dropdown menu.
If you see someone has requested a product you can use the message centre to let them know you have listed what they are looking for. Just provide them the SKU# so they can easily look it up and make the purchase.
This will enable our vendors and buyers to easily find out what others are looking for. Imagine making a product request and it goes out over our network of thousands in the electrical industry versus emailing and phoning for hours looking for a product!
