EXPLANATION OF STAGGERED CLOSING & SOFT CLOSE
If you'll notice in the Title of our Auction, it states that bidding BEGINS to close at 2:00pm EDT (Indiana Time).
However, ALL items do not close together at that time. Items will close in the order listed on the site, (unless affected by the Soft Close as explained below) and typically close at the rate of 6 items per minute (every 10 seconds). Our Auction was set up this way intentionally so that bidders can have time to evaluate their overall progress in a sale as individual items close.
You may also click on "Live Catalog" to view, in real time format, the lots that have current activity.
Additionally, if an item receives a bid within the last 2 minutes, then the close time will be extended 2 minutes from the time the bid is placed. The time will continue to be extended for 2 minutes with each newly placed bid and the item will not close until 2 minutes have elapsed with no additional bid activity.
This does eliminate "snipers" from our Internet Auctions.
Please be certain that we have taken every precaution to set the site up in a transparent manner that allows for the fairest environment for both buyers and sellers.
