Bidding is easy and fun! 

BUT PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT BUYING... YOUR BID IS A LEGAL CONTRACT TO PAY FOR THE LISTING IF YOU ARE HIGH BIDDER.

1. Before you can bid, you must be registered. 

2. Choose a listing you think you would like to bid on.*

Click on the listing photo or information line so the page for the listing opens.  You can view all the details about the listing. When you have decided to bid, look near the bottom of the page in the area with the heading "Bidding."  The system will show the current price, and what you need to bid in order to be ahead.  Enter an amount and click the button to review your bid and place it. 

*Note:  If you have not already updated your contact and billing information in your My Account area, the system will simply prompt you to enter that User Information before you are allowed to bid.

Tips:  Different types of Auctions and Asking Questions

 


Auction - Bidding on an auction is done in specified increments. The user with the highest sucessfull bid "wins" the auction and the ability to purchase the item. Auctions use Proxy Bidding (see definition below). The TABA Breeding Stallion auction listings are all this type of Auction.  From time to time we may have available other types of listings.

Dutch Auction -The final item price is the lowest successful winning bid by the highest bidders.

Fixed Price Item - All Fixed Price items are Buy Now.

Trade - To trade an item, begin by making a trade offer. The "Seller" can Accept or Decline your offer. If your offer is declined the "Seller" might send a counter offer. You can make multiple offers on any Trade listing. There are no bidding or buy now features.

Classified Ad - To purchase an item listed in a classified ad you begin by contacting the Seller with your offer. There are no bidding or buy now features.

Proxy Bidding - An automatic method of bidding that increases your bid to the next lowest price when another user bids on the same item. Your bid is increased until your maximum bid amount is reached or the auction ends.


Ask The Seller - At the bottom of every listing there is a "Comments" section where you can ask the Seller a question, or view previous questions from other users.

When submitting a question to a Seller, the message gets sent directly to their email address on file. The Seller can respond by following the link in the email.

To ask the Seller a question:

 

  1. Log into your account.
  2. Go to the Item listing.
  3. Scroll down to the section marked "Comments."
  4. Click the text "Ask the seller a question." This will take you to a Contact User form.
  5. Enter your message.
  6. Click "Send" button.
