How it Works

HOW 12 HOUR AUCTIONS WORKS

12 Hour Auctions is a company that focuses on outdoor products and liquidation auctions! So how does it work?  We host weekly online auctions. Each auction will last only 12 hours, so bid fast and don’t miss out on an amazing deal! Each Thursday, auctions begin at 7 AM CST. Each item’s auction thereafter begins 1 minute after the last.  Members have 12 Hours to place their bids. 12 Hours later the auction ends.  Our weekly auctions will be done by proxy bidding.  The goal of proxy bidding, also known as maximum bidding, is for you to win the auction item at the lowest possible price by placing bids on your behalf at the lowest possible increments up to a maximum amount you set. Simply enter the highest amount you’re willing to pay and the system will bid for you as prompted by other bids.  If another member bids higher than your maximum bid, we will notify you by email. The current bid on each item is visible at all times.
