Our sales state that the “Sale Closes” at a specific time. All Items do not close simultaneously at that time. Items begin closing in the order displayed on the site and typically close at the rate of 3 Items per minute (i.e. Items 1-3 close at H:00, lots 4-6 close at H:01, etc.). This is an intentional design so that bidders can have time to evaluate their overall progress in a sale as items close.
Additionally, if an Item receives a bid within the last 5 minutes, the close time will be reset to 5 minutes from the time the bid is placed and will continue to reset to 5 minutes with each newly placed bid. The item will not close until 5 minutes have elapsed with no additional bid activity. The item will say "Closing" as the sale closes, and ”Ended” once the item is ended. If you win an Item, please be aware that the Item will not show up in your “Won Items” list until after the sale has ended completely. The post sale closing and invoicing process takes approximately 2 hours.
