Specifying a quantity available to sell of > 1 on a Virtual Live item allows you to award the item to the same number of bidders (at the amount each person bid or at an edited price).
To Edit Item Quantity
Go to: Catalog > Add or Edit Item to specify the quantity available to award
- Multiple awards on competitive bid items is only available for item type = Live. This tool cannot be used on items that begin bidding in an online auction, then transfer to Virtual.
- Quantity available does not display to the public (unless you include it in the item description.)
To Award to Multiple Winners from Virtual Control Panel
When a Live item has quantity > 1, a Custom Award button will display next to the high bidder. The item can be awarded to the top bidder using the Award button (at actual high bid amount) or Custom Award button - if you need to adjust the winning bid amount.
Once the first item is awarded, an "Award Another" button will display next to the second highest bid - allowing you to edit the bid amount if necessary.
Note that you can edit the quantity of a Live item from the Control Panel panel if necessary.
