What’s a Reserve?

A Reserve is a secret price given to an item by the seller that must be met before the seller is willing to part with the item. In most cases, these are items that a nonprofit had to purchase. A Reserve is a tool we provide the nonprofit to take away any risk of putting purchased (not donated) items in their auction. If you bid on an item and the alert displays “Reserve Unmet”, then you will need to continue to bid until it states “You are Winning”. Only then will you have a chance to win the item.
