TOPIC: Orion's SC Auction has been funded, ordered, and shipped!

Orion's SC Auction has been funded, ordered, and shipped! 2 months 6 days ago #1

I am kicking off my first Super Condensed Lightning Auction with a one week run time. The goal is to get this funded and shipped prior to the Holiday Break.

I am setting reserve amounts for amounts that I think will be exceeded easily. The idea though is that if some items don’t get bidded on the reserve amount will still count towards funding (including augmented items). I will make no further bids outside of the reserve amounts.

I am keeping the Patron Lapel Pin, Patron Code, and Path of Enlightenment Fragment, but will be heavily augmenting the auction to make up the value of those items. Part of keeping this auction duration short is to not lock anyone in if I misjudge the value of the augmenting items and this drags on.

Funding goal is $7,666.00 out of $7,500.00 (100%) with $166.00 going to Casey's charity auction.

Free domestic shipping with totals over $50

Ending Monday, Dec 5th at 6PM EST

Orion's Super Condensed Lightning Auction Ending Monday Dec 6th 2 months 6 days ago #2

Auction Rules:

In order for the auction to be successful, the grand total of all bids must meet or exceed $7500. If the auction fails to meet the minimum, I may choose to go forward or call the whole thing off.

Why is the goal $7500 and not the order cost of $8000: The extra $500 is more than covered by the 9 random URs and a chance at a golden ticket which is included in an $8K Super Condensed Packs. By taking the 9 random URs and maybe getting a golden ticket I cover my time invested in this auction.

How bidding works:

◦ Bids should be sent to me via PM
◦ The first bid for an item must equal the reserve amount, all other bids must be more than the current bid
◦ The winning bid is the lesser of the 2nd highest bid + the bid increment and the highest bid
◦ You must bid at least the current bid + the bid increment

PLEASE BID ONLY IN BID INCREMENT VALUES

◦ Bid increment on items less than $10: $0.25
◦ Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $10 and less than $50: $1
◦ Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $50: $5

Once your bid is received I will send you a PM confirming it and your pseudonym. I will regularly update the auction with currently winning bids. The sheet generating pseudonyms was provided by Casey so if you have bid in his auctions these will look familiar.

This auction rewards early bidding. If multiple bidders bid the same amount, the earliest bids win. Because the winning bid is set by the second-highest bidder, you can enter your top bid initially and never overpay.

Feel free to bid on any number of items for which there are multiples available, your bid will always apply to the cheapest items.

Bidding ends on Monday, Dec 6th at 6PM EST, or 6PM the day after we reach the minimum bid threshold if we fund before Monday December 6th.

If there are technical difficulties with TD forums within 1 hour of the end auction time all open items will be extended 24 hours, open to all bidders.
Payment:

We are buying this 8K order together, I am not operating a store. Payment is required through PayPal via friends and family. All winning bids will have 48 hours after the close of the auction to provide payment. Any unpaid item(s) after allowed time will defer their winning bid and the next highest bidder will be offered the item at their maximum bid price of the item(s).

Shipping (domestic):

◦ $7 for items totaling under $50
◦ Free shipping for items totaling $50 or more

International shipping will be the actual cost.

All items will ship within 1 week of receiving the tokens from True Dungeon.

Please reach out to me via PM with any questions or concerns.

Wow! We are 50% funded in just the first few hours. I know it will slow down a bit from here, but I still expect us to hit our funding goal. Thank you so much to those that have taken part in the auction so far. :)

Updated with last nights / this mornings bids. Thank you for everyone taking part. A lot of great deals left here, but if you are looking for a good cause and an auction that is going to close sooner I recommend taking a close look at the charity auction that is ending on the 1st, or the ACS 8k Benefit Auction ending on the 2nd!

Casey shared some of his tools with me that have made a huge difference. The process is giving me an even greater appreciation for everyone that runs these auctions; it is a tremendous amount of data to track. Those that have run these in the past are definitely an asset to the community!

Thanks everyone for your support!

Updated UR prices to match the latest bid. URs are now $80 which still seems like a good deal to me, but I am old school and use to place $250 orders to get an UR before Auctions became popular. B)

Thanks again for everyone's support on the auction.

A lot of different bids on Treasure Chips this morning. If you bid on these in the past you may want to check and see if you are still in the lead.

Edit: Not a new bid, but updating the Ring of the 4th Circle to reflect what is in the tracking sheet $75, which still seems like a great deal! Everything should be up to date and ready to go now!
