Live Sales are Realtime community events hosted by vendors.
Live Sales typically run for less than 24 hours and are usually hosted at night. During live sales, a vendor will announce new items for sale every few minutes and each item is “first come first served”.
During the sale you will be able to view a real time chat session with the vendor and all of the buyers.
The seller can add items to the sale at any time, or they can schedule all product listings in advance (down to the minute).
When the time of the sale comes, go to the live sale page and greet your visitors in the chat room. This is YOUR CHAT ROOM. You are the voice of the event. It helps to do the following:
- Format your messages a certain way so they stand out
- Offer some trivia questions or contests throughout the sale to keep buyers involved
- You can post anything you want in the chat to make your event memorable
The live sales page will automatically refresh for your visitors. They do not need to click on the refresh button, items will be revealed at the top of the page at each specified time and will also be announced in the chat room.
Within the admin page there is an option to relist any items that have been sold if the buyer is unable to complete the sale.
The Live Sales System is available for Premier Vendors only. If you are already a member of the Premier Vendor program, you can schedule your live sale here:
