After Event Sales

January 2023: the current dashboard release has new graphics and some interface changes. Many screenshots still reflect the older release and will be updated shortly.

After an event, you may still have a few items left that, for example, did not meet their Reserve Bid price or perhaps you had multiples of the same item and not all were won at the auction.


For items with quantities greater than one (1) that remain to be "sold", you will want to "copy" the item so it does not impact the original auction of the item. For these "multiples", see How To Re Open The Item for more information.

Once the item basics are updated (or recreated), you can continue making the item ready for your After Event Sales.

Change To Buy-It-Now-Only Item

As an example, an item was originally set up for bidding with a Starting Bid of $10 and a Bid Increment of $10 and now you want to re-configure it as a Buy It Now Only Items setup for your After Events Sales.


Clearing the Bid Increment value and setting the Starting Bid and Buy It Now Price values equal (given the other relevant settings are already set correctly -- see Buy It Now Only Items) will change this item to a Buy It Now Only item.


If a Reserve Price was set it should be cleared as well.

Change To For Sale Type Item

An alternative to the Buy It Now Only Item approach is to use a For Sale Items type configuration especially in cases where the item has "multiples" to be sold. This approach can easily be done with single items as well.


For Sale type items do not use the Bidder Rules but instead rely on the the Pricing section Value.


Also to consider are the values in the Availability section. This is where you would set the Quantity available for the item, as well as if the item will be purchased immediately or go on account via the Online Purchase Behavior options.


The Online Availability section would be where you set its new online bidding ends at time.



The default Online Purchase Behavior is the Immediate Payment Only method. See For Sale Items on the For Sale Items Detailed page for additional information about this section.
