WHAT AM I EXPECTED TO DO?

  • When auctions begin at 10am PT, you‚Äôll comment a starting bid of $5 under the ūüĒ•PLACE BIDS HEREūüĒ• comment.
  • If you need to respond to questions or compliments on your work, try to make sure those responses are not¬†in the bidding comment¬†so that bids stay¬†clear for me and other¬†bidders.
  • If anyone bids outside of the bid comment, let them know by commenting a ‚Äúcorrect bids‚ÄĚ comment. (I go through and remove bids that have been already corrected occasionally to avoid confusion.)
  • Throughout the 24-hrs, comment a ‚Äúreminder‚ÄĚ twice. One before the first auction day ends, and another anytime¬†the next morning. (I‚Äôll also be reminding the group.)
  • When auctions end, tag the winner in an ‚Äúannounce the winner‚ÄĚ comment, and DM them immediately after with ‚Äúpayment instructions‚ÄĚ.
  • Confirm their payment by visiting your link. The¬†add to cart button will read "Auctions on IG @metalsmithsforchange once it's purchased.
  • Ship your piece in a reasonable time frame, and send the winner¬†shipping details.
  • Be awesome and continue being the light we need.
