SitusMe is using an Auction style to Sell your items.
There are two option to sell your items: first, It is using "Auction" or "Bid" and Second, it is using "Buy Now".
If you are not an eStore owner, you can not Sell your item as "Auction" or "Bid", You only can sell your item using "Buy Now" option.
Auction or Bid, The higher bid will win the item. Buyer need to wait until the Auction or Bid end. The Seller needs to specify time when the item will end.
Only eStore owner can sell the item via Auction or Bid.
Buy Now means, user can purchase your item directly without need to wait until the auction end. Similar like you are shopping in the supermarket or in the mall.
You can purchase the item directly. Anyone can Sell your item using Buy Now option. It is free.
To list your item simply click on the "Sell an Item" link found on the header navigational bar. The listing process is split up into several main sections, notably:
- Category selection
- Item Details
- Auction Settings
- Shipping and Payment
- Listing preview
- Listing confirmation
The listing process is developed in such a way that you are guided through every step seamlessly.
The first part of the process is to choose the category you wish to list your item in, this can be revised at any time by using the �Previous Step� navigation button.
< your for category secondary a select also can you available>
Step two enables you to enter your item title and description, a full wysiwyg editor is in place to enable you to use HTML descriptions.

Moving on to step three, this is the biggest stage of the listing process. On this step you can set the following:-
- Standard Auction: This is a single quantity auction
- Dutch Auction: Dutch auction enables you to list a multiple quantity auction, for example if you have 100 pens to sell you can list all of these together in a single lot. Bidders will be able to select how many they wish to bid for.

This field is only active if listing a Dutch auction, please see above for an explanation of this listing type
Auction Starts At:
This requires you to enter the minimum bid you are willing to accept, you can also set a reserve price to ensure you do not sell the item for this amount. Please see below for more information on this.
Auction End At:
We suggest that you set auction end for Buy Now items is minium 90 days (better for search engine listing)
For the Bid items, we suggest no longer then 30 days.
Enabling a reserve price affectively means you will not sell the item for less than the amount set, for example you can set the start price at 5.00 but only accept winning bids over 50.00, should a bid be placed for 49.99 the item will close without a winner.
Buy Now (if available):
Buy Now allows you to set an amount you are willing to sell the item for straight out.
For example you can set the start price to 10.00 but offer interested parties the option to buy the item immediately for 100.00.
You can also list Buy Now only auctions, these auctions remove all bidding options meaning the listing can only be purchased for a set amount.
To set a Buy Now only auction you need to set the Buy Now value to be exactly equal with the start bid.
(Non eStore owner is allow to setup Buy Now)
Offer-Range (if available):-
You can set a price bracket in which you are willing to listing to offer, for example if you set the price brackets from 15.00 to 100.00 interested parties will be able to offer you an amount within these brackets, you can opt whether to accept or decline these offers at any time via the members area.
This option can be used to set your own custom bid increment if preferred.
