Announce a Winner:
Congratulations!! 🎉 You won this auction! Please check your DMs for payment instructions.
Hi! Here’s the link to purchase my piece. The price will reflect your winning bid amount and be made available for you to purchase at 10:30am PT.
(Your listing’s link goes here. Click here to find it.)
If you have questions, please ask within your auction’s DM group.
WHAT AM I EXPECTED TO DO?
- When auctions begin at 10am PT, you’ll comment a starting bid of $5 under the 🔥PLACE BIDS HERE🔥 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 “correct bids” comment. (I go through and remove bids that have been already corrected occasionally to avoid confusion.)
- Throughout the 24-hrs, comment a “reminder” twice. One before the first auction day ends, and another anytime the next morning. (I’ll also be reminding the group.)
- When auctions end, tag the winner in an “announce the winner” comment, and DM them immediately after with “payment instructions”.
- 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.
