Re: Internet Tie Bids with an Online Webcast Auction; If a LIVE FLOOR bid comes in and ties a non accepted ONLINE bid then the floor wins. eg: Online bidder has a MAX Bid set to $200 and the bidding was started at $100 online and the floor jumps to $200. Floor bid wins. If you want to set your absolute Max as a starting bid we must know prior to the auction start.
ONLY IF THERE IS A TIE BID BETWEEN TWO ONLINE BIDDERS THEN THE EARLIER BIDDER GETS PREFERENCE AND WINS.
***Live internet bidding associates are on auction premises for the sole purpose of working with live internet bidders to post their bids competitively with other live floor bidders and live internet bidders. They are not clerking the live auction.
