Sometimes even the best laid plans go awry.
This new feature allows you to extend the online closing times of all your items by 10 minutes - with just two clicks - from the Auction Night Tasks screen.
To extend bidding during your event:
Click on the Extend Bidding button
- If Automatic Closeout is enabled on your site, clicking on the Extend Bidding button will immediately pause Closeout (awarding of items).
- Click the red button to extend online bidding by 10 minutes on all open items AND any items that closed within the past 5 minutes which have not already been awarded.
- Click the blue button if you decide to keep the existing closing times on all items.
- If Automatic closeout was enabled and paused, it will reactivate once you've made your selection (or clicked on X to close the window).
- Once bidding has been extended, you will have time to use the bulk edit menu on the catalog page to edit closing times more specifically, if desired.
