Auction Terms

Anti Sniping / Dynamic Closing:
Each auction item is scheduled to end at a specific time. However, all LoneStarOnline auctions use an AUTO EXTEND / DYNAMIC CLOSING feature. Thus, bidding will still remain open on any item that receives a bid within the last 5 minutes prior to the scheduled closing time. Time extensions are added in 5 minute intervals to the original auction closing time and to each extension’s closing time when a bid is placed. For example: if an item is scheduled to close at 10:00am, and a bid is placed between 9:55am to 10:00am, the closing time will be extended by 5 minutes until 10:05am. If a bid is placed within that 5 minute interval, then bidding the closing time will extend until 10:10am, etc… Once a 5 minute extension interval has passed without any bids, the auction for the item will close, and the lot will show as COMPLETED in red letters. This means that bids are no longer accepted, and the username showing is the winning bidder. To make sure you see all other bids placed, click the “Refresh” button on your web browser frequently before that item closes and during any extension periods. Your screen may not “auto-refresh,” and you may not see bids placed after yours if you don’t manually refresh.
