Q :      Why does my previous User login details not work

Should this be the case please contact administrators before making a payment as goods could have been resold allready.

 

Q :    Why does certain lots end later than specified time ?

A :     Whenever a bid is placed in the last 2 min of a lot time, the system will automatically extend the lot time by 3 min to ensure that the previous highest bidder
