How to schedule a bid

Display the auction description and copy the item number

eSnipe needs to know the item number of the item you want to bid on. The best way to get it is to copy it from the auction description to your computer's Clipboard.

If you already know how to do that, you can skip to the next page. If not, read on.

Display the auction description in your Web browser. Notice the item number in the heading.

BEAUTIFUL CLASSICAL GUITAR
Item #1231194

To copy the number to the Clipboard:

  1. Double-click your mouse on the item number. This should make your browser highlight the number, probably like this:
1231194
  1. From your browser's Edit menu, choose the Copy command.

(There are alternative ways to perform each step, which you may prefer as you learn more about your computer. See your computer's operating system documentation for details if you're interested.)
