Item Page Visibility

To start the auction, the Items page view must be Live allowing supporters to place bids on auction items. When the Items page is set to Preview or Hidden, add a Go-Live date for your Items page to automatically update to Live. Items can be added or edited at any time, regardless of the page view.

Tip: Don't edit the Starting Bid, Bid Increment, or add or remove items from a package if bidding has started on the item or package.
