How to Place a Bid on the Online Auction
The auction is an exciting way to bid on great items and support the organization at the same time. Follow these simple steps to bid on and, hopefully, win your auction items.
Step 1 - Click "Auction Items" on the left hand menu on this website.
Step 2 - In the purple box you will see a list of auction items that are available to bid on. When you see an item you wish to bid on, you can click on the item's name (highlighted in blue) to learn more about that auction item. If you wish to bid on this item, simply click the "Bid" box.
Step 3 - You can preview the current bids on this item on this page. You will be able to see all of the real-time bidding information on the auction item. You will also be able to see the starting bid, bid increment and quantity.
Step 4 - If you do not have an account already, you will need to create an account. To create an account, click on "Register Here" (highlighted in blue). This process is free, and only takes a couple of minutes. If you already have an account, fill out your information. You will need a valid credit card for this process.
Step 5 - After you have entered your username and password, you may now place a bid.
Step 6 - Once you have placed a bid, you will receive an email confirming your auction item and your bid price. Your bid will appear highest under the "Current High Bidders" section of the purple table until someone else has placed a higher bid.
Step 7 - If you win the corresponding prize you have bidded on, the Cobequid Foundation will contact you after the end of the auction to arrange for pick up. You will also receive an email annoucing that you have won. As soon as the auction closes, your winning bid amount will be automatically charged to your credit card.
