Set Up Instructions for the Silent Auction
This year we will be using the RFL auction vendors. Their set up is very similar to the RFL sales vendors you are using for your store items. You can find the auction vendors already positioned in the auction area on Fairelands Junction. Select one of the auction vendors and the corresponding Auction Fullfillment Vendor next to it. Buy each of these for 0L. Do NOT take them into your inventory. Do NOT move them. Just follow these instructions for setting up your boxed auction item.
Buy the Auction board for 0L. Do NOT take it into your inventory. Do NOT move it. Please check the option to share with Group.
Rename the board to be the name of what you are auctioning off.
Click auction board to set up.
Place full perm texture IN AUCTION BOARD CONTENTS (not on) and click the board again.
Follow the link in local chat to set up your auction. You will get a webpage with numerous details to set. This is the information you want to supply.
TEAM: Should automatically select to Fantasy Faire but if it doesn’t please select Fantasy Faire, Team 158. The teams are in alphabetical order.
AUCTION ENDS: BE SURE to change the DATE and TIME from the default to when the auction will actually end. The Auction will end Saturday, May 2 @ 5pm SLT.
FIRST BID: Default is 500L. This is what I recommend you leave it at.
BID INCREMENTS: Default is 50L. This is what I recommend you leave it at.
AUCTION DESCRIPTION: Please enter a short description of the item you are auctioning.
AUCTION TYPE: Select Display Last Bidder
EMAIL: You can use your own or firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to click ‘done’
Touch the auction board inworld and it will load the information. TOUCH IT AGAIN and your auction has started!
Buy the Auction Fulfillment Board next to the Auction board you just set up (for 0L). Do NOT take it into your inventory. Do NOT move it. Please check the option to share with Group.
Put the boxed item (you are auctioning off) into its contents.
Touch the Fulfillment vendor to activate it, approve debit permission, and click the matching Auction board.
The auction fulfillment vendor is an optional timesaver instead of IMing back and forth and rezzing a kiosk.
Within a minute of the auction ending, the fulfillment vendor will enable itself, only sell to the winner, and only at the winning bid price.
If you have questions please contact FantasyFaire Resident or Oldesoul Resident or ask in the Backstage group 🙂
