|Our Auction design is based on the premise that once an auction starts, reserve prices and opening bid amounts are no longer 'changeable'. When you think about it those are critical terms and conditions for the auction and if you were allowed to change those it would be unfair to your bidders. The way to resolve those are to stop the auction (if there have been no bids) change the starting or reserve price and relist the auction.|

|(no avatar)||AA-BOB, What I am saying is when I wanted to start my auction , with NO reserve, For 1 Penny, I was not given the option to have a "Penny" auction. The system only offered BASIC, RESERVE, DUTCH or buy it now. I am saying I would like to be able to promote my auctions as Penny...NO Reserve auctions and please give me instructions on how to do it and get the "Penny" symbol even though I'm auctioning ...starting at 1 penny ...in 1 penny incriments...with no reserve. Please instruct...I have searched the sight and can't find out how. I'm not trying to jerk anyone around...just get the most exposure.|

Hi, texnexile. Thanks for your interest in Penny Auctions, our exciting auction venue. Here is some infformation from our "Help and Info" page,>p/>
Penny Auctions can be very exciting because bidders are enticed to bid by the possibility getting something for a very low price. And the seller is pretty much guaranteed to sell whatever they're listing.
A Penny Auction is a Basic auction that starts at one penny. That means no reserve, and the item sells for whatever the price is at the close of the auction - even if it's just one penny.
We basically have two sets of Seller standards for Penny Auctioneers.
The staff of Auction Arms must personally approve a Seller in order to list a firearm in a Penny Auction. The minimum criteria that a seller must meet before being approved as a Penny Auctioneer for firearms is rigorous and involved, in order to maintain the existing quality of sales at Auction Arms.
If you're interested in becoming a Penny Auctioneer of firearms, and:
Once Qualified under the above criteria, a Qualified seller may list a Penny Auction under any category. Non-Firearms - The "ZZZ - OTHER" Category Any seller can list a Penny Auction in the "ZZZ - Other" category (you do not have to be qualified), BUT you may not list firearms in the "ZZZ - Other". If you want to list something in "ZZZ - Other", start the auction from "List an Item" and select "ZZZ - Other" as your category. All auctions created in this category will be "Penny Auctions". "ZZZ - Other" auctions will also show up under Penny Auctions - Non-Firearms on our Home Page. Hope this is helpful. Thanks for using AuctionArms.com. Good luck on your auctions, we look forward to qualifying you as a "Penny Auctioneer" soon!

|(no avatar)||I made a mistake and listed the wrong caliber for a firearm. It is a reserve auction and the reserve has been met. I tried to edit the auction but it said I could not lower my reserve although I did not change it. When I tried to raise the reserve by .01, it said I couldn't raise the reserve. Is there anyway to edit the description without having to end the auction early?|

|(no avatar)||Aigun Dri-fire ===================================================== Aigun Dri-fire I read the description specks for a very intersting spring air pistol or rifle offered by somone who deals mostly in regular fire arms, and I see the blood chilling statement,-- "The gun cocks and fires seems strong". I get the feeling that they have fired this gun without a pellet in it , not understanding that you can destroy the piston of a springer by doing that. I say this because I have had that experience twice before At a local yard sale I piccked up a Winchester barrel cocking springer and asked if he had a pellet to test it with , he replied "go ahead and drifire it I , everyone else has been doing it all day"! Another incident the same dialogue occurre at a gun counter at a Sports shop featuring airguns. I spent time lecturing them to not ruin their stock of airguns ( then sell them to unwhitting clientell. Anyway I do wish all sellers would realize that the same anti-dryfire rule applies to spring air guns as does to regular firarms. The only exception is pneumatics (without spring pistons) such as pumpups or mass storage , they are not hurt by drifiring ,, it only wastes air and energy:-) Soo sellers take note: ;;PLEASE DO NOT DRI-FIRE SPRING AIR GUNS;; Thank you|
