TABLE OF CONTENTS
To be able to bid in an auction, the following are required:
- Logged in to a verified Tiltify account (email verified)
- Credit Card
Finding the auction is as simple as going to the shared link for the auction. When you get to an auction house, it will look as below. It will have the items you can bid on under the header [Auction Items], Select the item you want to make a bid.
When on the item screen, if you are not logged in to an account, you will be prompted at the top to log in. If you are logged in and missing either credit card or address information, that will prompted here as well.
If there are no bids on an item, there will be the minimum bid listed above the donation box. Please note that if you bid above that amount, it will default to the minimum bid until outbid.
As with donations to a campaign, bidders have the option to remain anonymous and to opt in to allowing the cause to contact them.
Once your bid is made, you will receive an email confirmation that your bid is the top bid. There may be times when you will receive an email right after that stating you have been outbid. That means someone either had a maxium bid that was higher, or someone came in later and outbid you. The item page will appear as below stating that you have been outbid.
Bid increments are smaller when the bid price is low and larger in higher price brackets.
