CQout - Frequently Asked Questions - What is Instant Buy?

What does it mean for Buyers?

"You are certain to get the item and no waiting"

  • Speed - you don't have to wait days for the auction to close. You instantly receive notification of sale, and can immediately communicate with the seller to arrange delivery.

  • Certainty - No reserves. As soon as you place a bid you know you've bought the item at that price
   What does it do for Sellers?

"It saves you frequent re-listings yet the item is available for immediate sale"

  • Low Maintenance - items remain on view for up to 1 month at a time, but as soon as you receive a bid, the item closes automatically and you can complete the transaction

  • Convenience - unsold multiple auction  items are re-listed automatically. Say you have 10 items for sale and receive bids for 2, the auction for 2 items is closed successfully and the remaining 8 items are automatically re-listed as a new auction
  • More Exposure - When you select InstantBuy your item will be submitted to GoogleBase and other search engines which will greatly improve your chance of selling your item.

When listing, this how you choose
Instant Buy  It's the option on the list
Length of the Auction     Select 5-14 days or Instant Buy
