Please note that it is not possible to switch between different ad types after you post your ad.
In order to participate in any auction, first you need to register an account. Once you have an account, visit any auction and in the sidebar, you will notice a bidding box.
Under “Bid for Goods" tab, in the input space, you will see what is the minimum value you must place (indicated as “Min Bid: $xxxx"). Type your bid amount and once the auction is finished, and if you’ve won it, you will receive a confirmation mail.
List of all auctions in which you are or have been participating in, is displayed on your profile under Auctions.
In order to promote your ads, first you must navigate to your submitted ads in your dashboard, and from the action menu, select the last option. It will open modal with list of all available promotions available to you, as well as your currently active promotions for the particular ad.
List of available promotions might be:
- Bump Up Ad ( this will update creation date while expire time remains and can be used only once per ad )
- Highlight Ad ( this will make your ad stand out from others in listing )
