Welcome!

You can search for items on the Home Page or browse items by category. To place a bid or sell an item you must register for an account.

Auction - A Traditional Auction listing allows you to sell items to the highest bidder. You specify the start price, and people bid against each other in specified bid increments. Traditional Auctions allow the Seller to set both a Reserve and Buy Now price. When listing a Traditional Auction, the quantity of goods is equal to one.

Example:

  • One pair of jeans has a quantity of 1.
  • A lot of 5 different men’s shirts have a quantity of 1 because they are all sold together as one item.

Fixed Price - A Fixed Price listing does not allow bidding. The seller specifies the only acceptable price for the item(s). You can sell one item or multiple identical items with one Fixed price listing. Because there is no bidding on fixed priced listings, all items are Buy Now.

Classified Ad - Unlike traditional text only classified ads, our Classified Ads allow image uploads and dynamic communication between the Seller and all potential Buyers. When listing a Classified Ad, you enter your asking price, the shipping cost, and any information about the item or service you are selling. When an arrangement has been reached between the buyer and the seller, the seller can manually end the Classified Ad.

Buy Now - When listing an item, you may have the option of setting a Buy Now price. The Buy Now feature allows instant purchasing.

The Buy Now feature is available for the following listing types:
  • Traditional Auction
  • All Fixed Price listings - The Fixed Price is automatically the Buy Now price.

Reserve - The Reserve price is the absolute minimum dollar amount the Seller will accept for an item. Buyers are notified after placing their bid if it is below the Reserve price.If a Buyer's maximum bid is greater than the Reserve price, the Reserve is automatically met and that user is the high bidder. The ability to set a Reserve price is only available to Traditional Auctions .

Snipe Bidding - Snipe bidding is not allowed!!! Snipe bidding is when a bidder tries to put in a bid at the last second to win a listing. If any bidding is being done even at the end of the auction, just like a live auction, bidding will continue until there are no other bids. If a bidder bids within 3 minutes of the listing closing time the auction closing time will be set back to close in 3 minutes so as to give the other bidder a chance to counter bid if they are not using the proxy bidding. This time extension will continue as long as the minumum bid is placed within 3 minutes of the listing closing. PROXY BIDDING is always recommended as the system will handle all your bids for you, in minimal amounts, up to your maximum bid when another user bids against you or has a proxy bid placed as well. All bids placed on this site are considered real and in effect, even if you don't win or are the highest bidder, until all items are delivered. The owners of property sold through this web site reserve the right to reject, or accept, any and all bids, if they so choose upon approval from Wildlife Buyer, LLC.

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. Auction uses Proxy Bidding,  (see definition below).

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

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. Dutch auctions do not use Proxy Bidding.


Ask The Seller - Under the START DATE of every auction there is the sellers name and to the right of the sellers name is CONTACT SELLER. Click this button to 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 Sellers name and to the right click on CONTACT SELLER"
  4. Enter your message.
  5. Click "Send" button.
