New on Auction Art: bidding via Twitter

leave a comment »

Auction Art #2 is sold. Time to review the concept again. This time I add Twitter bidding. Which means you can place bids via Twitter. What makes this interesting for you is that you get a 5% reduction if you win the auction with that bid.

How do you place a bid via Twitter? Simple: send a twit to @auctionart, and compose your twit like this: “@auctionart I bid (amount) euro”

You’ll need to confirm your bid via e-mail (sorry about that, but experience has learned some people sometimes don’t know what they’re twittering). So please contact me via e-mail after placing your Twitter bid. If you haven’t contacted me within 24 hours after you placed your bid,  your bid becomes invalid.

Please note that the reduction will be calculated on the price of the painting only. There’s no reduction on the shipping costs.

New painting online tomorrow!

Some minor changes

leave a comment »

Ok, the first Auction Art painting has been sold. Time to review the concept and make some changes. This is what I’ve changed:

Minimum bid. From now on the bidding price under the painting will be the minimum bidding price. So you can bid higher than that price if you want. But only if you really really want :)

5 becomes 3. Five days till the end of the auction was a bit long. Let’s reduce that to three.

Bidding history. Because people are suspicious beings.

That’s it for now. I also changed/added the above three items on the About page. New painting will appear online tomorrow.
