The best way to order your auction items

The best way to order your auction items

In our experience it’s always best to mix up your items and not group them together by type – This will deter people to carry on looking through the list if they aren’t interested in that category. This way people are encouraged to look through all the items and we find they end up bidding on something they weren’t initially looking for.

You want to make your items feel attainable to a wide audience, so think about having a mixed distribution of prices – you don’t want to have all of your high or low-priced items at the end of
the page.

If you are worried about having a long list, to make things easier for potential bidders, you have the option to assign your items to categories. People can then search the category menu to easily navigate around the auction if they’re looking for a specific item.
