Buy It Now Only Items

A silent, live, or online item can be set up as a fixed price item by making it a buy-it-now only item.

A buy-it-now only items are most commonly used for items you want to sell multiple of (for example a dinner party). They are configured as follows:

  • Buy-It-Now Price and Starting Bid are set to the same value
  • Allow multiple winners set to yes
  • Quantity set to the number required, or blank/0 for unlimited

Bid Sheet

For a silent auction item the bid sheet will be generated as a 'sign up' sheet, showing the number of rows to match the quantity, and each for the fixed price.

Online Bidding

On the website or mobile app, bidders will have a buy-it-now button rather than a bid button and can choose to purchase multiple in a single transaction.

Item Closing

A single winner item is closed as soon as someone clicks on the buy-it-now button.

With a buy-it-now item that supports multiple winners, the item will not be closed until the end of the auction or the last one is sold. However, buy-it-now bids will appear as final bids in a bidder's account immediately even though the item is still open.


For example if you have a Movie Night item which allows 6 winners at fixed $15


  • Starting bid = $15
  • Buy it now = $15
  • Quantity = 6
  • Allow multiple winners = yes
