# What Are Biddable Items?
BIDDABLE ITEMS: These are Item Types participants can place bids for.
|Item Type||Common Usage|
|Online Items||Primarily "online", or electronically, taken bids where bidding automatically closes at the end of the Online Bidding Time set for these items.|
|Silent Items||"Final bids" are generally taken from "paper" bid sheets but can be bid online "pre-event" although these items will not automatically close by default.|
|Live Items||In most cases, these are items auctioned at an "in-person" event with bidding led by an auctioneer, emcee, or similar "host" at the actual event venue where their "Final Bids" will be recorded.|
