Proxy bidding can aid your chances of winning an auction and help avoid you being outbid at the last moment. To place a proxy bid enter in the maximum price you are willing to pay for the item.

How To Sell

Once you have signed up for an account, you will be able to sell stories and pictures through the site.

In order to do that, you will have to click on the "Sell" link, and you will be redirected to a page, you can then select the main category of the product or service you want to sell.

The second step is entering the auction details, settings, payment methods available, and choosing a category. An image that will come with the auction is free of charge, but the admin may charge for adding additional pictures.

On the Auction Settings tab, you can choose the type of the auction, the start price, whether to activate buy now or set a reserve price.

Also, you will be able to choose what type of bid increment to use, the progressive one implemented into the site (that can be edited from the admin area), or a custom one. If you choose the custom one, you will have to enter an increment value.

You will also be able to choose whether to feature the item, and the duration of the auction.

After setting the location, shipping and payment and subcategory, and by clicking on the "Next Step" button, you will be redirected to Step Three, where you can review the auction before submitting. If everything is in order, you can click on the "Submit" button, and will be redirected to the payment page, or a confirmation page, if no fees have to be paid. The auction is activated once the payment is confirmed by the payment gateway, or instantly, if no fees need to be paid.
