AutoExtend Feature: All WisconsinSurplus.com Auctions use the AutoExtend feature. The basic rule is there must be a minimum of 10 minutes for a bidder to react to a bid. If there is a bid placed in the final 10 minutes for an item, the ending time for that item is automatically extended to allow the bidders 10 minutes to react. If another bid is received during that 'extended time,' the ending time is extended again--and again, if necessary, for 10 additional minutes for each extension. This continues and repeats until there are no more bids submitted during the 10 minute extended period. This 'AutoExtend' feature allows the bidding process to be more fair for every bidder and gives all bidders a chance to respond to any last-minute/second bid(s). Items are Autoextended ONLY if a bid is placed within 10 minutes of the scheduled closing time. EXAMPLE: If you are bidding on an item scheduled to end at 10am and you place a bid at 9:59am - the auction will Autoextend to 10:09am - if another bid is placed at 10:04am the auction will again be Autoextended to 10:14am. This will continue until no bids are placed during the 10 minute Autoextend period.
Staggered Ending Time: Auctions with multiple items use a Staggered ending time. Each item has its own ending time. If the auction is scheduled to end at 10:00am the first item will end at 10:00am and each item after the first will end in a set staggered interval. An example is a 5 minute stagger, each item will end 5 minutes after the item before it. But, don't forget if an item is bid on in the last 10 minutes the AutoExtend will begin for that item. The following items will stay on the original scheduled staggered ending time (unless they too are Autoextended). The remaining auction time will be displayed within 24 hours of the end of the auction under the bid entry field on the right of the page. The AutoExtend feature applies to all online auctions. AutoExtend applies if a new higher bid is placed in the last 10 minutes prior to the scheduled end of the auction, thus extending via the AutoExtended feature for 10 additional minutes to prevent last minute snipe bids. Once extended the auction will auto-extend after each additional bid. NOTES: Bid History is displayed in Eastern Time. Generally each auction has a few terms listed at the beginning and throughout the auction item inventory. These terms are considered items and are included in the staggered ending sequence.
