First, the “Feature Auction” is purposely limited in size to provide the best possible opportunity to our bidders, as such only a small predetermined number of registrants may participate in any auction event. You must register in advance for any auction. Our auction employs an automated elimination protocol, – see elimination below.. These are LIVE Auctions created to be entertaining, relatively fast paced and strategically aggressive.
Unlike our competitors, every one of our auctions includes the potential liability for us to take a loss.
Additionally, our format is designed to begin and end in hours not days.
You should also know a portion of any profit is earmarked for charity.
Added Value every dollar spent purchasing bid tokens is matched in point values. Accumulation of these points provide an opportunity to select most of the same items offered at auction from our Point Redemption Catalog. (shipping is not included through the points redemption process).
Elimination is a real possibility!
- If you fail to login in the first 30 minutes and did not engage the Autobid feature, you will be eliminated.
- At 31 minutes after the Auction begins, 1 random bidder will be automatically eliminated every 60 seconds.
- If your maximum bid amount or supply of tokens has been exceeded and the system randomly calls on you to bid, you will be eliminated.
- As the auction draws to a close, the elimination protocol is suspended so that ONLY the highest bid will ensure a fair winner.
The winning bidder will NEVER pay more than 80% of the full retail price for that item.
Hence, our trademarked slogan “If it sounds to good too be true… It’s Gidatang!“.
