PAYMENT
With your first sale submission we will need a credit card which we would keep on file. We send our month end statements on the first day following the close of a month (for example FEBRUARY 01 for JANUARY 2020). On the fifth day following the close of the month (for example FEBRUARY 05 for JANUARY 2020) we make the charge to your card. The four day interim provides time to reconcile our statement and if necessary to contact us.

AD EXPOSURE
When we install your ad into our sale databse (always within 24 hours of receipt) automated tweets are immediately sent to a small but growing following at: twitter.com/bidderpatter Collectively, they currently acheive from 3000 to 10,000+ weekly impressions. Back at our web site we receive 30,000 to 35,000 visitors each week who launch 1000's of searches on our sale database. In the course of a promotion, sale ads are visited anywhere from 1000 to 5000 times or more. In addition, your ad is emailed to some of our 25,000 registered subscribers where interests match sale items. In the last year to date period we sent over 2,700,000 pieces of email on behalf of our auctioneers.

HOW DO YOU GET STARTED - CONTACT DATA
We would need you to fill out our form at www.theauctionadvertiser.com/joinauc.htm before (or at the same time as) the submission of your first sale notice.

LANDING PAGE
Once we have the data from above we build your landing page for visitors to our site to find out about you and your business, and if you have your own domain, we provide a link back to your web site. In addition, a current calendar of sales that links to your detailed ads is maintained for you, with your first submitted ad we announce you from our homepage as a NEW PARTICIPANT and provide a permanent spot alongside all our other regular participants while you continue to use our service. Here is an example of a landing spot: www.theauctionadvertiser.com/GGerber

SUBMISSIONS
Sales should be submitted as WORD, TEXT or PDF (EDITABLE) files attached to an email and sent to sales@theauctionadvertiser.com or, the text of your ad can be dropped into the body of an email and sent as above.

Alternately, and we recommend this, an electronic clickable submission form is available for our auctioneers: www.theauctionadvertiser.com/Submit. You drop your ad into a box, click some item categories and click submit. It is worth a look now but you do need a password to submit your sale from this form. Once you are installed into our system you can retrieve your password from the submission page.

Photos can be attached to an email and sent as above. Please make every effort to submit photos that fit an 800X640 pixel frame (modern digital cameras have a format setting close to this) and are near (or below) 200,000 bytes per photo.

Alternately, you can use our FTP service to upload your photos. Here is the link to retrieve and help you install your Filezilla client (FREE software that self installs in less than 5 minutes): www.theauctionadvertiser.com/Filezilla Once you (or I) have uploaded the photos, they can be installed into your current or pending ad from our INSTALL page: www.theauctionadvertiser.com/JumpLoader You can then add captions to one, many or all photos from our EASYCAPTIONS page: www.theauctionadvertiser.com/easycaptions.htm

A DRAG and DROP environment for uploading your photos is also available to registered users at
