Sellers Tips
How do I find out how my auction ended? Auction results are available on the original item's auction page, for up to 30 days after the scheduled close of the auction. You can also search on your Username.

Can I change my item's description or category? Unfortunately, you cannot change your original description or item title, since bidders might be confused by any material or significant change in the item once the auction is underway. But you can add a dated addendum to your description by selecting the "modify " radio button at the bottom of the item page and then submit. A form will allow you to make an addition to your description.
Can I change my item's starting price or quantity? Unfortunately, the initial parameters of an auction, such as starting price, quantity, or reserve price, cannot be changed once the auction is underway. You should carefully verify your listing before placing it. If necessary, you can email the Administrator to end your auction and then relist it.
You determine the bid increments.
What do I do if I can't contact the seller/buyer by e-mail? The registered users contact information will be included in the confirmation email message to both the seller and the winner.
What if the high-bidder backs out? If you've been unable to contact the high-bidder, then you may move on to the underbidders. If there are other bidders for your item, you can contact them in the order in which they appear in your item's bidding history. Please be sure to allow at least three business days before moving on to the next bidder.
The complete bidding history of any auction is always available via a link from the auction item page.
Keep in mind that many people don't access their e-mail daily, so they may not be intentionally ignoring you if you don't hear from them.

How do I "jazz up " my listings with colored fonts like other sellers? You can add different colored and sizes of fonts to your item description by using HTML (HyperText Markup Language) . HTML is a very easy-to-learn tool for formatting text to display in interesting ways inside a web browser. HTML uses what are called "tags " to determine the type of formatting. Here is an example. To make a word appear as bold, you place the word in between the HTML opening and closing tags for Bold, <B> and </B> like so:
<B>Tat2 Net Auction Bid</B>
This makes the word "Tat2 Net Auction Bid " look like this:
Tat2 Net Auction Bid
Here are some other tags:



<I>Tat2</I> Tat2
<U>Tat2</U> Tat2








Try some of these on your own. To learn more about HTML, use any search engine to locate one of the hundreds of free, "how to" pages on the web! Or go to a page that contains interesting formatting and select View, Document Source or Page Source from your browser's Command Menu Bar.

How do I put pictures in my listings?
When you add an auction you get 3 choices for photos
1. No photo -
No brainer
2. Use URL from photo on the web - All you need to know is the full URL, (example - http://www.myisp.com/myphoto.gif)
3. Upload Photo - With a scanned or digital photo on your hard drive or floppy disk - you can upload it right to your auction, just follow the prompts carefully

To use multiple photos you can type the Image URL Tags right in your item description and it will display there. (If you already have your item posted you can "Modify" by choosing the option at the very bottom of your item auction page)

Examples of image tags below.
<img src="http://www.myisp.com/myphoto.jpg"> - Basic image tag
<img src="http://www.myisp.com/myphoto.jpg" border="1"> - small border around image - border="4" is a fat border
<img src="http://www.myisp.com/myphoto.jpg" align="right"> - Forces image to right of page and text will stay to left
<img src="http://www.myisp.com/myphoto.jpg" alt="My favorite Photo"> - Displays text if image doesnt load, also shows text when mouse passes over

Below is in detail instructions for creating images and uploading to your server so you can display images as above.


You must "capture" the image or photo by using either a digital camera or a scanner. A digital camera takes the image and creates a digital file that you can then "upload" into your computer by following the instructions that came with your particular make of camera. A scanner "scans" actual photographs or graphics and converts the data into digital information that is stored on your computer. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages.
The visual information of a photo or scan is saved as digital data in a computer file. There are several different possible types of image files or "formats" but the two we are most interested in are GIFs and JPGs. The image formatting software that comes with your digital camera or scanner will best explain how to convert your image files to either format. GIF format is best for non-photographic images. Photos are most often best converted to JPG format. Using either format, you must also give the image file an identifying name like:
myphoto.jpg or mypicture.gif
Image files need to be a workable size in kilobytes. Large image files may take too much time loading for most bidders and could use up the limited amount of space on your web server (step 4). Any image larger than 150KB is probably too big for easy loading. 50 to 150KB is a good range. If you use a scanner, never scan at any resolution over 72 dpi (dots per inch), that is all the resolution a Web Page can show and any more is a waste of your bandwidth. You can make the file size even small er by using a service like Gif Wizard. or Photoshop 5.5 or other palette reducing software. The software that came with your digital camera or scanner will help you reduce your image files to a workable size while maintaining satisfactory image quality.
There are several free and shareware graphics applications available for resizing, converting and adjusting all aspects of an image file. Graphics Workshop and Paint Shop Pro are two very good shareware graphics apps. Try searching from the TUCOWS site at www.tucows.com (While you are there, look for WS_FTP LE under the FTP section and download it as well.)
Next, you will need to put the image files of your photos in a place where the Internet public can access them. Keeping them on your hard drive won't do it. So the next step is to use a special type of application called FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to "send your images to a publicly available web server. Most Internet Service Providers (ISP) provide web server space for to their subscribers just for this purpose. Download and install an application like WS_FTP LE (a terrific FTP application). WS_FTP has two windows; the left window is a directory tree for your hard drive and the right window is a directory tree for your allotted space on a remote web server. Your ISP will provide the necessary instructions and information for setting up your FTP application so that you can connect to your space at their web server. Then it's just a matter of sending your image files from the left window to the right window using the arrow direction buttons.
Once you have uploaded copies of the image files, you need to note the address or URL (Universal Resource Locator) for each one. A URL is that long bunch of text that starts with:
http://www.something.com/~my_user_id/my_photo.jpg This hypothetical URL is like a postal address in reverse. The "city" would be the "www.something.com". The street would be the "/~my_user_id" and the "name" would be "/my_photo.jpg". Together all the elements of a URL point to a specific filename at a specific and unique location.
When you list an item, you type the URL for the image into the box provided marked "photo URL." If you have followed the above steps carefully and correctly, the image will display on your auction listing.
What happens if my item doesn't sell? Go to the [Closed Auctions] text link at the bottom of the page and select. After giving your User ID and password you will get a list of items that you are selling or have bid on, that have closed. Select the item that did not sell and you can look at the pertinent information such as bid history and high bidder. You can repost your auction directly from that page.
What is a "Reserve Price Auction?" Some auctions may be run with reserve prices. The reserve price is the lowest price at which a seller is willing to sell an item. The reserve price is never disclosed to bidders. A seller might specify a reserve price if he/she is unsure of the real value of his/her item and would like to reserve the right to refuse to sell the item if the market value is below a certain price. During an auction, an annotation will be displayed in the item information screen if the seller has specified a reserve price. The seller specifies the reserve price when he/she lists an item. This price should be above the minimum bid price. The auction begins at the minimum bid price. When a bidder's maximum bid is equal to or greater than the reserve price, the item's current price is raised to the reserve price. At this time, the item information will indicate the reserve price has been met. The bidder is also notified that his/her bid met the reserve.
What happens if the reserve price is not met? If an auction ends and the reserve price has not been met, both the seller and the high bidder are released from any further obligation to complete the transaction. As stated in the Tat2 Auction Plaza Rules: "The reserve price is the lowest price at which a seller is willing to sell an item." The buyer must be able to assume if they did not meet the reserve price, then as stated, the seller will not be willing to sell the item.
