  • Immediately request payment when an item is won. (Winners pay for each Item as they win them.)

  • Request payment when auction closes. (Winners pay for all the items they've won at the end of the Auction.)

You can also choose to activate auto-charge. 💸

Auto-Charge Payment Method ON

  • Registering as a bidder gives the Auction manager permission to charge the payment method on file either immediately after each item is won, or cumulatively at the end of the Auction.

  • Winners will receive a notification of items won, followed by a transaction receipt.
