Table Notes

  1. The Purchase Receipt will be sent for any purchase/registration that goes through the checkout page of the website ... basically when using the "shopping basket". If a bidder follows a "Pay Online" link in an email to pay a balance owing, those payments would generate a Bidder Statement. Both of these are sent automatically at this point.

  2. These Mobile app notifications are controlled by the Online Bidding Notifications settings.

Bidder Registration / Purchase Receipt emails are automatically sent and cannot be disabled. Bidder Statement as a text message can only be sent manually.

Additional details on Text Messages can be found under Text Commands. Also to note, some Text Messages are only sent as acknowledgements such as with the claim and register commands.
