Official Blog of the Tophatter Auction House
We’re rolling out a new feature late this afternoon (Monday), that will allow sellers to pre-schedule lots for sale into Standby in an auction when the pre-scheduled slots for that auction are full.
A few seller-oriented details below:
- Prescheduling into standby will count towards your scheduling capability just as normal prescheduling. For example, if you can currently have 3 lots prescheduled, that includes both normal prescheduled AND standby together. Think about it as a ‘PREscheduling limit’
- You can still add to standby in an auction starting when the room opens. Lots added during the auction DO NOT count against the scheduling limitations described above.
- Everything else with standby will work exactly the same. Standby may re-open throughout an auction, and standby lots don’t count towards your statistics if they aren’t advanced out through an opening bid.
PS - we really don’t like the term ‘Standby’ and are working on something different. Stay tuned!
