Posted By scaold on 2020-01-10

Sunday January 12th at Noon will be first auction on the New SCAsold.com website. 

- Bidders from the old website...  You will need to re-register.  Only takes a few minutes and as before no credit card on file.  Your old bidder numbers are no longer valid.  Will use your email address & password to sign on..

- Only real change from previous experience/site is I cannot put a Paypal link on my invoice at this point.  However, you can still send Paypal payment to me directly at [email protected]   Just include you name & bidder # in messages.  All other payment options remain same as before

- New bidders... Welcome..  I hope you enjoy my auctions.  As stated above no credit card on file with SCAsold.com.  You can send Paypal payments directly to me at [email protected]  Otherwise you pay when you pick-up by credit card, cash or local check.  

- Viewing & Bidding:  Very simple!!  25 items/lots per page.  To view all photos for an item just click on main photo.  You can scroll through other photos and even use the magnify feature!! 3 ways to bid...  1. manual enter your maximum  2. Opening bid or next required bid is just a button you click   3. button on the bottom has an amount higher than next next required bid if you are feeling aggressive.  Items/Lots will go off at a rate of 1 every 30 seconds.  Will extend 1 minute for late bids to avoid "sniping"

- You will need to occasionally use the page refresh button

- End of Auction:  Winning bidders will recieve an invoice after the auction.  print this out and bring it to pick-up.  You may actually recieve 2 emails after the auction.  One with all you won & possibly a 2nd telling you what items sold for that you bid on but did not win...

Thank you all for your business from 2019 & the new scasold.com in 2020

Changes to pick-up due to Maryland business closure

Posted By scaold on 2020-03-25

OLD INFO / DISREGARD  At this point I'm sure everyone knows the status of closures in the four state area due to the Coronavirus.  I am closed...  Pre-view on Friday is Cancelled.  Pick-up days previously advertised are cancelled.  Here is what I am going to do regarding the current auction which starts closing Saturday the 28th 6PM.  

Buyers have 3 options for pick-up

1.  Wait till I am permitted to re-open to pick-up.  Pre-pay via Paypal, credit card or check mailed to: Smithsburg Country Auction PO Box 243 Smithsburg MD 21783 would be appreciated but if you must you can wait till pick-up

2.  I am willing to ship entire orders that fit into a 12x12x8, 14x10x10 box or smaller.  Cost will be actual shipping plus 50 cents for supplies.  Let me know asap after the auction so I can prep the order and give you the shipping cost.  It will not be on the invoice sent.  Pre-pay via Paypal, credit, check required before I'll ship

3.  I plan to do some order delivery within 10 miles of Smithsburg.  Contact me for details...  Pre-pay with paypal or credit card.  Pay on delivery via check or EXACT CHANGE cash as will not be carrying money to make change

Will have another auction coming up earlier April of all small easy to ship items and I will make some changes to be announced later to offset shipping costs

Everyone be safe.  Trying to be as accomodating as possible in this difficult time.  Small business owners (especially sole proprietors in MD) need to be creative to keep things going.  Thank you all so much.

RECENT QUESTIONS REGARDING RECEIPT OF EMAILS + I NEED ZIP CODES FOR SHIPPING

Posted By scaold on 2020-04-13

HAVE HAD A REALLY GREAT EXCHANGE WITH THE SOFTWARE COMPANY I USE.  THEY HAVE PROVIDE INFORMATION TO SHOW THAT 100% OF THE SYSTEM EMAILS ARE BEING SENT. A FEW THINGS THAT BIDDERS CAN DO TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR INVOICES & OUTBID NOTICES ARE RECEIVED....

1. Go to your profile and make sure you spelled your email and user name correctly.  It happens..... Just had one

2. Do not mark any of the SCAsold.com emails as "Junk" or "Spam".  Email service providers (yahoo, gmail etc..) have systems that pick up on that and will automatically start blocking the emails so sending outbid notices etc..  to a junk/spam folder could eventually lead to you not receiving an invoice etc..

3. I have had several users who couldn't sign on using their phone but could sign on to their PC.  That is an issue with a phone setting and you should consult your phone service provider to sort that out.  

THANKS EVERYONE...  I HOPE YOU THAT WHILE I GET A LITTLE OVERWHELMED AT TIMES THAT YOUR QUESTIONS AND ISSUES ARE HEARD.  IT WAS A GREAT PHONE MEETING TODAY WITH MY AUCTION SOFTWARE PROVIDER.  A LOT OF THINGS WERE DISCUSSED AND RESOLVED.  

ZIP CODES:  FOR SOME REASON THE MAJORITY OF BIDDERS ARE NOT INCLUDING A ZIP CODE WHEN THEY REGISTER.  IF YOU COULD UPDATE YOUR BIDDER PROFILE WITH A ZIP CODE IT WOULD BE A GREAT HELP TO ME.  ESPECIALLY WHILE SO MUCH IS BEING SHIPPED.  IT WASN'T SO MUCH OF AN ISSUE WHEN EVERYONE WAS PICKING UP.. 

BEST WISHES & BE SAFE

REGARDING NON RECEIPT OF SYSTEM EMAILS

Posted By scaold on 2020-04-24

REGARDING NON RECEIPT OF EMAILS FROM THE WEBSITE (INVOICES, OUTBID NOTICES ETC..) - I communicated with the software provider shortly after the last auction ended. He was able to show me proof that the system processed 100% of it's emails. Apparently, what is happening (especially to those registered with Gmail accounts) is that when you receive outbid notices too many people are sending them to a junk or spam folder rather than deleting them.. At some point the email provider software picks up on the Junk/Spam designation and it blocks emails which will include your outbid notices and invoices. So please delete rather than send to junk/spam. That being said if you have trouble this weekend please contact me at [email protected] and I will help you
