After the Online Auction

At the end of the online silent auction (with the Live Event Package upgrade), you can view a summary of all the items, winning bids, and winning bidder information from the Sales Summary page. This page specifically displays this information for each item:
You can also download the Sales Summary as a CSV (comma separated values) file. This file can be opened using a spreadsheet application like Microsoft Excel. Have a look at the example CSV file for the Demo Auction to see how this works.
Once the online auction has ended, you can print out bid sheets for use at the live event. The bid sheets PDF is made available on the Live Event Package page. You can view the bid sheets PDF example for the Demo Auction.
When the online auction ends, leading bidders will be notified via email. The email informs the bidders they will need to continue bidding at the live event and are also provided the Live Event Information you entered for the auction. If an online auction participant cannot attend the live event, they have the option of entering a Proxy Bid. This is the maximum amount they are willing to pay for the item. Once the online auction ends, you can view the maximum proxy bid amount for unsold items on the Sales Summary page and in the downloadable auction item data. You can honor these proxy bids at the live event by entering bids on the bid sheets up to the maximum proxy bid amount. If you don't want to allow proxy bidding, you can turn it off on in the Advanced Settings sections of the Edit Auction page.
We recommend giving yourself enough time in between the online auction and the live auction to carry the information forward. The printable bid sheets are the easiest way to do this. However, it still takes a few minutes to print out the bid sheets and arrange them on the bidding tables at the event.

After the Live Event

After the live event ends, you have the option of entering the final selling price for each item into the system. You can choose the winning bidder from a list of online participants or enter in the information for live event participants (a.k.a. offline bidders). Once you add an offline bidder, they will also show up in your list of participants and can easily be selected for additional items. We highly recommend collecting an email address for each of the live event bidders. Once you enter the final selling price and choose the winning bidder, the system will notify them via email if they have an email address. This also gives them the option to pay for their items online if your auction has the Payment Collection feature enabled. Another nice feature of entering the final selling price for each item is that the previous high bidder from the online auction will be notified if they were outbid at the live event.
If you are interested in collection payments online, including major credit cards and PayPal, then add the Payment Collection feature to your auction. With the Payment Collection feature enabled, as soon as you enter the final selling price for an item and choose the winning bidder, they will be notified they won (assuming there is an email address) and that they can pay for their item online. They will be sent a link to an invoice page which displays the items they won, the total amount due, and a Pay Now button.
