Bidding Guide

Registration
You must register to bid with a valid email address. After registration, you will recieve an email to confirm your account creation. Your account is disabled until you click on the link in the email to activate it.

Credit Card Required
This auction requires a credit card to bid, please enter your credit card information during registration. This information is encrypted and kept securely and can/will be used for payment.

Why do we require a credit card for registration?
In order to ensure a legitimate auction with legitimate people bidding, we require a credit card to make sure people are who they say they are. Otherwise, anyone in the world could bid and adversely affect the auction. Remember, if you do not want to pay using a credit card, contact us so we can arrange other means of payment. However, you still must register with a valid credit card.

Is my credit card information safe?
Absolutely! We use Stripe.com for our credit verification and processing. Stripe is a leader in online payment processors. In addition, your information is encrypted and is stored at Stripe and NOT on our server. In fact, we do not even have access to your full credit card number, only the last 4 digits. Your information could not be safer.

Maximum Bidding
You can enter a Maximum Bid at any time just like eBay. Your increasing bids will be made automatically whenever you are outbid until the maximum bid is reached. You will receive an email anytime Maximum Bidding takes effect. Also your maximum bid will be listed on that item so you can easily see your current status.

Extended/No Rush Bidding
When a bid comes in within the last 5 minutes, that items auction will be extended an additional 5 minutes. This extended bidding will continue as long as there are bids coming in. This eliminates trying to get your bid in at the very last second and allows everyone a chance to bid. Items that are extended will display their own countdown clock.

Email Notifications
You will receive emails when registering, bidding, being out bid, when you won and if you buy an item after the auction concludes. Be sure to mark the emails as NOT SPAM so you see them as they come in. Also, PLEASE do not count on emails for bid notifications as emails can be delayed for many, many reasons! Logging in and refreshing the pages are the keys to keeping track of all the bids!

Bid Notifications
There are a few ways you are kept up to date on your bids. After your successful bid, the horse you bid on will have a different color border. It will also say whether you have the winning bid, or if you have been out bid. Plus, you will receive an email with your bid information.

Remember, if your bid is not high enough above another bidders Maximum Bid, your bid will be accepted, but you will still be out bid until your bid is more than the other bidder's Maximum Bid.
