FlowAuction Participation Flow

At this auction, we offer safe, high-quality transactions, so we request that all customers register as members. For member registration requirements and details, please refer to the "membership contract." The registration fee is due only for the initial registration (and is lower than the fees generally charged by auction sites). Additionally, for their first transactions only, sellers will have no handling fees for up to ten items; this will provide sellers the opportunity to understand the auction's flow, market rates, and atmosphere.
