Auction Settings: NOTIFICATIONS
The "TEMPLATES" tab is critical to communication between you and your guests. Please take a moment to fill out each section carefully to mitigate confusion before and after the auction is completed. You can use the list of "tokens" on the right to personalize your message. Tokens allow your message to auto-populate certain information like the bidder's name or their paddle number. Please feel free to copy our example messages complete with tokens and add them to your auction site with your personalization.
