Silent Auction FAQs
We know there’s been a number of questions regarding the Silent Auction taking place next week and we’re going to do the best we can to answer those questions here.
But first we want to take a moment to thank you for the overwhelming response for Julee and Preslee Turner. We’ve been awed with each donation and email, amazed at the kindness of strangers, and thankful to see a community come together to support a friend in need. Thank you!
1. Do I need to enter my item on each blog? Do I need to visit each blog to see all of the items?
No, you don’t need to visit each of our blogs to enter or bid on an item. You only have to enter the link on one site, and it will show up on all of our sites. The same with bidding on items… All of our blogs will have the exact same list of items up for auction.
2. How do you bid on an item?
When you see an item you want to bid on, click on the link from the list and you’ll be taken to that item. In the comments, please be sure to leave your name, email address, and bid. All bids must be made in $1 increments. If the last bid is $9, then your bid must be at least $10.
3. How is a winner chosen?
The comments should be closed on Friday night at 10:00pm(EST). The highest bid will be the winner of that item.
4. How will be payments be accepted?
We will contact the winners and will send them a Paypal invoice for the amount. Once it’s paid, we’ll let the donor know so shipment can be arranged.
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE:
- It is at the donor's discretion if the item will be available to US bidders only, or if they are willing to ship internationally. If you are donating an item, please be sure to list in your post if it's limited to US bidders only.
- It will be up to the donor to pay for all shipping charges.
- All payments should be received by October 31, 2012.
- These payments are not considered a tax deductible.
