Online silent auction starts Thursday, May 14
Be an early bird! The online silent auction will begin Thursday, May 14 at 12pm CST and will continue until 8 pm the evening of the fundraiser on May 16. To participate in the online silent auction, you’ll need a digital device (phone, tablet, computer) and an account to bid.
The online auction will be at www.32auctions.com/school2015. St. Martin’s will have some loaner devices on campus the evening of the 16th, and there will be onsite proxy bidders for those unfamiliar with online bidding or those uncomfortable with online credit card payments.
Creating your user account for online bidding is a simple process which involves providing minimal information, including a valid email address. To create an account, go to www.32auctions.com/school2015 and click on LOGIN and then choose “create account.” You’ll receive an email sent to the email address you provided, and you’ll click on the link in that email containing a link to finalize your new account. Once your 32auctions account is finalized, you will be able to bid on items during the auction. Winning bidders are able to easily and securely submit payment using a credit card, debit card, eCheck, or PayPal account. You can even get familiar with the bidding process by viewing a demo at www.32auctions.com/32auctionsDemo.
