Auction Item - is the current item up for bid. The current item terms will be announced at the start of the item auction.
SCC = Saddle City Comics
How do the auctions work?
The bidders compete against each other, with each subsequent bid being higher than the previous bid.
Once an item is placed for sale, the auctioneer will start. The price increases each time someone makes a new, higher bid, until finally no other bidders are willing to offer more than the most recent bid, and the highest bidder wins the item.
Before each auction, the bidding increments will be announced to the group as part of the description of the item.
An auction is considered complete when the vendor accepts the highest bid offered and the buyer pays for the goods or services and takes possession of them.
The SCC member will announce the closing of an auction by typing in the Facebook chat “Going Once, Twice… Then Sold.” The bidding can continue if someone puts forth another bid during the auction closing and before the SCC member types SOLD to close off them item. The Facebook chat will be the definitive end of the auction item.
All auction bids, questions and transactions will be through the Facebook chat. Only use the video for visual reference due the Facebook lag. ***THE FACEBOOK CHAT IS FINAL SAY IN ALL MATTERS. ***
You gain an entry in the draw by winning an auction.
Facebook Chat Rules:

Buy It Nows (BINs):
The BINs are NOT auction items and will have a price displayed on them. You can claim a BIN item by typing “Claim BIN Right or Left” in the Facebook chat. You can make offers on the BIN item and it is up to the discretion of the SCC member to accept it or not. You gain an entry in the draws by claiming a BIN.
