I bid and won many times on POTO auctions. Everything went always smooth. Never had a problem. I look forward every week to his auctions.

Kenny is a stand-up guy. Talk to him and I'm sure he'll resolve it.

Hey Ziggy, sorry that your first experience with our auction did not go well. I've already responded to your email. But just to clear the air. Ziggy placed a normal bid of $25 and there was a proxy bid of $27 on the item. Per rules of the auction the new bid of the item was automatically raised by $1 to $26 with the proxy bidder being the highest. The auction went on to end with the winning bid of $26 for that item.

I also did not offer to sell the item for $50 to Ziggy. He's referring to what he saw on our site. The item would still show the Buy It Now price of $50, but after the auction has ended, it would not be available for anyone to purchase anymore - no Buy Now button and no more bidding allowed. If that was the case I have asked for screenshots and would have the developer look into it. But I doubt it.

Things do get hectic down the stretch and Ziggy likely typed in $25 with the intent to bid $35. I have offered Ziggy another frag of the same coral at the winning bid of $26.

Kenny

I got your response. Thanks but the whole thing was just odd. I was bidding on two items. I know for sure I didn’t win one but second one was odd and just found every weird that automatically come up available to purchase for $50 what was the buy it now price and not only one but both corals one after another.
