What Happened to My Fixed Price Listings?

As of January 31st, 2020, Aucto.com no longer feature Fixed Price Listings, however, they now feature a new selling type known as Tenders. This means that at this time there will be no way to add any new Fixed Price Listings and all existing listings will be removed from the website.

All existing fixed priced listings have been moved from this previous selling type to a draft auction which you will be able to see under the MANAGE AUCTIONS page under the seller tools. Once in the Auctions section, you will be able to find all the previous items listed underneath your store in one consolidated store. By default, this auction will be set to draft so the seller can make the decision if they wish to proceed towards this method of selling or not.

The Seller will find the following defaults set for their auction if they wish to proceed with this sale the seller can customize each setting to get their desired settings.

  • Auction Terms
    • Sales Terms: The sales terms for this new draft auction will have the same sales terms from the previous store settings sales terms
    • Removal Terms: The removal terms for this new draft auction will have the same removal terms from your previous store removal settings.
    • Payment Terms: The payment terms for this new draft auction will have the same removal terms from your previous store payment settings.
    • Sales Tax: The sales tax for this new draft auction will be the same as your previous store sales tax setting.
    • Buyer’s Premium: The buyer’s premium for this new draft auction will be the same as your previous store buyer’s premium setting.

 

  • Asset Locations
    • Each lot in the auction will have the same location as the previous Fixed Price Listing.

Each auction will be set into a draft mode, allowing you to review the settings and make any changes. If you do not wish to move your previous Fixed Priced Listings into an active auction you can choose to keep the auction in draft mode.

While we understand that some sellers may be disappointed to see the previous Fixed Priced Listings undergoing this change, we are confident that you will find the tenders selling method superior.
