HOw The Online Auction Works Login to the auction site at auction. Please register and create a User Name and Password. Feel free to use your real name or be creative and keep your identity a mystery! When placing a bid please note if there is a minimum bid requirement or other restriction. Many auction items will have minimum bids assigned that are not listed in this catalog. (Note: information regarding restricted bidders is in “Terms and Conditions.” on p. 31) BIDDING INCREMENTS

When placing bids on items under $100 increase your bid in $5.00 increments. For items $100-$500 increase your bid by $15.00. For items $500-$1000 increase your bid by $50.00, and all items over $1,000 increase your bid by $150.00. PROXY BIDS/AUTOMATIC BIDDING

As a bidder, enter the highest amount you are willing to pay for an item. The highest bidder at the close of the auction earns the right to purchase it at the agreed price. You are only going to have to pay one-bid increment more than the highest opposing bidder. Of course, if someone outbids your maximum bid, then you will not win the auction. HOW AUTOMATIC BIDDING WORKS (PROXY BIDDING)

When you place a bid, you enter the maximum amount you’re willing to pay for the item. The other bidders don’t know your maximum bid.



We’ll place bids on your behalf using the automatic bid increment amount, which is based on the current high bid. We’ll bid only as much as necessary to make sure that you remain the high bidder, or to meet the reserve price, up to your maximum amount.

If another bidder places the same maximum bid or higher, we’ll notify you via email so you can place another bid. Your maximum bid is kept confidential until it is exceeded by another bidder. Example The current bid for an item is $50.00. Tom is the high bidder, and has placed a maximum bid of $75.00 on the item. His maximum bid is kept confidential from other members. Laura views the item and places a maximum bid of $90.00. Laura becomes the high bidder. Tom’s bid is incremented to his maximum of $75.00. Laura’s bid is now $80.00. We send Tom an email that he has been outbid. If he doesn’t raise his maximum bid, Laura wins the item. Proxy bids are especially useful when you are bidding on many lots that are closing within minutes of each other. They will make sure that you don’t miss out on lots just because you are bidding on another lot. At the close of the auction, the winner will be contacted with payment instructions. Each item must be paid for separately. You may pay with Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover, PayPal, or make arrangements to write a check by contacting Lee Rantzow at or (901) 842-4613. Please pick up your items from the Advancement office March 29 and 30 from 8-11am or make arrangements with Lee Rantzow for pick-up.

F R E Q U E N T LY A S K E D Q U E S T IO N S What happens if there are technical difficulties with the website during the sale closing? If technical difficulties occur during the closing of a MARCH MANIA website sale we reserve the right to extend the closing times/dates as needed.

Do all of the items close at one time? (Staggered Closings) We will make every effort to keep items from closing at the same time in the event you are managing multiple bids at a time.

Can the MARCH MANIA ONLINE AUCTION cancel an item where the bidding has already started? The MARCH MANIA ONLINE AUCTION reserves the right to: cancel, suspend, extend or reschedule an individual item.

Am I notified if I am outbid? If you have been outbid you will be notified by email.

I’m concerned about my safety online. What do you do to protect me? The MARCH MANIA ONLINE AUCTION takes your personal online security very seriously. We will accept checks for all items if you’d rather not pay online. Our online payment runs through PayPal, which is a secure transaction. Can I raise my bid, even if I am the highest bidder? Yes, you can. Simply return to the auction item’s page, and place a new bid. Your proxy bid will be increased, but your existing bid will not increase unless you are outbid by another participant. Am I bidding on the item in the photo or the description of the item? Always bid on the item description. Only use the photographs as a guide. For demonstration purposes, equipment may be joined and photographed together. Do not assume a lot consists of more than one item simply because they are pictured together. You are bidding on the item as described in the catalog. For instance, a supply cabinet does not include supplies unless specified. Please take the time to read the descriptions.

To quickly review your bids and see if you have won you can utilize the “Current Bids” or “Won Items” feature by logging into the website. How do I know If I won? If you are the winning bidder of an item, your bidder ID will appear next to “High Bidder” in the bidding screens and item details for that item. You will know you have won a item when you receive an email from The MARCH MANIA ONLINE AUCTION after the auction closes. In the event that you have not received an invoice by the afternoon of the day following the close of the auction, please contact Lee Rantzow @ (901)842-4613. Be sure to refresh often to update the data on your screen. How can I view all bids I’ve submitted? To quickly review your bids, login to the website, and click on “Current Bids.” Should I bid while the auction is closing? Many of our bidders begin bidding actively as items are closing. However, to assure you do not get caught up in the frenzy of last minute bidding, consider using the bidding the maximum you are willing to bid. The site will bid on your behalf-using only what it needs to keep you the “winner.”
