Starting a New Auction FIRST REQUIRES Hiding Old Items

Learn how to hide old auction items to make way for the new ones

This is simple to do with a the click of a button. You need to do this BEFORE adding new items AND BEFORE creating a new Auction Event.

To hide old Products:

  1. First of all, be sure your Products have all closed and that you have no open Auction Events. You can't hide your Products if you still have an Auction Event running. You will get an error message telling you that you need to wait until the event is over.
  2. Go to Catalog/Manage Products.
  3. In the upper right, next to the Add Product button, is the Hide All Products for New Auction button.
  4. Click that button to hide all of your CLOSED/SOLD items.

TROUBLESHOOTING: If you get the error message because you accidentally set up a new Auction Event prior to disabling your old Products, you will need to adjust the end time to end now so that you can first disable your Products and set up a new Auction Event after that.


Now if you go to your Auction Home Page, you should see that all of your Products have disappeared. You can now add the items for your new auction!

To begin adding items to your new auction, start the process over at Step 1 by first adding a new Auction Event and then adding items to the new Auction Event, do not add to any old events.
