Classified Ad - Unlike traditional text only classified ads, our Free Classified Ads allow image uploads and dynamic communication between Members. Classified Ads are only available to members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and are only to be used for advertising classes, workshops, shows, open studio tours, studio hours or demonstrations. Prohibited listings would include studio equipment, display stands, new or used vehicles, farm animals, etc.

Auction - A Traditional Auction listing allows you to sell items to the highest bidder. You specify the start price, and people bid against each other in specified bid increments. Traditional Auctions allow the Seller to set both a Reserve and Buy Now price. When listing a Traditional Auction, the quantity of goods is equal to one.


Fixed Price - A Fixed Price listing does not allow bidding. The seller specifies the only acceptable price for the item(s). You can sell one item or multiple identical items with one Fixed price listing. Because there is no bidding on fixed priced listings, all items are Buy Now.

Buy Now - When listing an item, you may have the option of setting a Buy Now price. The Buy Now feature allows instant purchasing.

The Buy Now feature is available for the following listing types:
  • Traditional Auction
  • All Fixed Price listings - The Fixed Price is automatically the Buy Now price.  

Reserve - The Reserve price is the absolute minimum dollar amount the Seller will accept for an item. Buyers are notified after placing their bid if it is below the Reserve price.If a Buyer's maximum bid is greater than the Reserve price, the Reserve is automatically met and that user is the high bidder. The ability to set a Reserve price is only available to Traditional Auctions .
