The Con OFF the Cob Auction is an online biddable marketplace for games, books, toys, collectibles, art, handmade stuff, and anything weird, unusual, geeky, or awesome. Have some old board games you want to unload? Make it happen. Does your fur suit need a new body to live on? This is the place. Star Trek: The Next Generation VHS tapes want a new home? Make it so...


HOW TO SUBMIT ITEMS FOR AUCTION

Here is the extremely easy and remarkably pleasurable process:

  1. Purchase any Con OFF the Cob badge.
  2. Nab some Auction Allotments from the Con OFF the Cob Merch Store.
  3. Fill out this form for each item you wish to submit.

Faryl will create a channel for your auction in the Auction category on the Con OFF the Cob Discord Server. It will go live and people can begin bidding immediately. The auction will end at the appointed time during the con.


HOW TO BID ON ITEMS

Bidding is very easy. All you have to do is post a comment with your bid. For example, $20.

Then the next person posts a bid, which must be at least one dollar higher than the previous bid. Say, $30.

Someone else bids higher.

It goes on like this until the auction's end time.

A few minutes before the auction ends a moderator will join the chat and alert bidders to the auction's impending closure. whoever has the highest bid when the moderator closes the auction wins the item.

If several people are bidding in the room the moderator might jump into auctioneer mode and call for specific bids (Do I hear five hundred?) until nobody raises the bid, at which time a winner will be declared based on the highest bid and the auction will close.

Note: Bids to NOT include the price of delivery. The seller and buyer will arrange for that once the auction ends.


HOW AUCTIONS END AND WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

Whoever has the highest bid at the end time wins. The moderator will mark the auction CLOSED.

The seller will contact the bidder to arrange payment and delivery.

The seller mails the item to the buyer.
