Auction-style listings allow potential buyers to bid on your item(s), once the time limit has expired, your item(s) will be sold to the highest bidder. Auction-style listings are best when:

  • You want the marketplace to determine the value of your item because you are unsure of it’s monetary value. 
  • Your item(s) are rare, unique, collectable or in high demand. These types of items can easily start bidding wars and in turn maximize your listing’s profits. 

Setting the starting price for your auction will determine the minimum amount required to start bidding on your item. Take note that prices are in Canadian dollars.

Setting a Reserve price on your item provides you the guarantee that if your minimum price is not met during the bidding process you are under no obligation to sell your item. 

The duration of your auction can be 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10 days.

You can also make it possible for bidders to purchase your items immediately. 

In order to allow bidders to buy your item right away you will be required to enter a buy now purchase price.
