How do I register for an account and/or login to my account?

How do I add new lots to my sale?

Once you have created your sale, you can start adding lots. Begin by clicking the ‘Add New Lot’ button.

Enter Information including the lot number, lot name, pedigree, etc. Upload any pictures you have for this lot. Note: the first picture you upload will be that lot’s “covershot” that appears next to the lot information in the sale listing. You may also upload a lot video and a testimonial video. You do not have to include videos, this is just and added feature of our sales site.

When you are finished entering all lot information and have uploaded any photos and videos, click ‘Add This Lot’ and you will be taken back to your main auction page where you can add more lots, save your auction for later or submit your auction for review.

How do I submit my auction for review?

Once you have finalized your sale information and added all lots (including all photos/videos) you must submit your auction for review before it can be viewed by the public. To do this, go to your sale set-up page, ensure everything is complete and click ‘Submit This Auction.’

This will notify your SC Sales Manager that your sale is ready for review. If everything is complete and correct, the SC Sales Manager will approve your sale and it will be available for public viewing. If there are any changes needed, the SC Sales Manager will push the auction back to you with a note explaining those changes.

What can I do to help my auction be successful?

We are dedicated to making your sale with us a great experience, but there are also many things you can do to help ensure your sale is the best it can be. Below are just a few ideas:

  • Take quality photos: Lot descriptions can be important, but the photos you take are the truest representation of the animals you are selling. It is of utmost importance that the photos you use for your sale are not only high quality, but that they accurately represent each animal.
  • Use videos: Whether its lot videos showing off the animal’s attributes or third party testimonial clips of industry professionals describing your sale offering, videos will enhance the appeal of your sale. And if you’ve already put the time into making these videos, you can share them on your own website or on social media platforms to further increase traffic to your auction page.
  • Get social: Speaking of social media…why not use today’s technology to get the word out about your sale?! Whether it’s sending out an eBlast or posting photos of your sale lots on Facebook, use the Internet to your advantage! Not tech-savvy? We’d love to help!

These are just a few ideas to help you get started, but if you have any questions or want to discuss other ideas, feel free to reach out to a member of our team at any time by visiting the Contact Us tab!
