Q: Why does the system say it cannot find the guest when I can see their name and know they are in the system?
A: Click on the correct name to "pull" it into the box before hitting "Continue." The check-in search box is an auto complete/search box but the user needs to select the data to go forward.
Q: A group bought an Item together but want to pay separately. How do I sell to a group?
A: Go to Catalog > find Item > click on Edit icon > Edit Quantity to match # of buyers > Divide FMV/ # of people buying > Save. Auction Night > Sell item to each buyer at Bid Price / # of Buyers. (Example: 5 buyers jointly bid $10,000 to share an item with FMV $5000. Edit Quantity to 5 and FMV to $1000 and sell 5 times at $2000 each.)

Q: Why do the AMEX and/or Discover Cards keep failing?
A: Your merchant account may not be authorized to accept AMEX and/or Discover AND/OR your auction software is not set to accept them.

Someone with CHAIR privileges will be able to change/check the card type settings at Admin > Site Settings > Payment / Credit Card > Setup Gateway.
