Each Auction will have a scheduled time that each auction's items will begin closing. If an auction starts closing on a Friday night at 10 AM the first lot will be scheduled to close at that time. Depending on the quantity of items in the Auction lots may be scheduled to end anywhere between 5 to 30 seconds apart. Each lot will show a scheduled ending time. If no one bids in the final minute before a lot is scheduled to close that lot will close out. If someone bids within the final minute before that lot is scheduled to close, 2 Extra minute will be added to that lot and that lot only to allow additional time for people to bid. The remaining lots behind that lot will continue to close as scheduled unless someone bids in the last minute on that specific lot as well. This is done to prevent a bidder from 'sniping', all bids made in the last minute of the auction will force an item to stay open for an additional 2 minute. This gives the back bidder additional time to increase his/her bid if desired. This process will continue until all bidding has ceased on no one bids within the additional 2minutes that was added. 9.
