Once fully onboarded, this article serves as a checklist for auction companies setting up an event using atgPay.
1. Enable atgPay on the event
- Items to note after enabling atgPay on you event
- Enable Autopay to automatically charge bidder credit cards either 24 or 72 hours after invoices are sent to winning bidders.
- Enter a Credit Card Limit if applicable.
- Enable the Holds feature should you wish to apply a fund verification hold to your event.
- Select the Allowed Payment Methods.
- Select whether or not fees will be absorbed or passed on to the bidder.
- Select the Shipping Method for the event: Local Pickup, Bidder-arranged, House-Arranged, or any combination of the three.
- If shipping fees are going to be applied to the events, House-Arranged must be one of the shipping methods selected.
2. Indicate the shipping, payment, and checkout information on your event
- Ensuring shipping, payment and checkout information matchs the Payment & Terms and reflect the use of atgPay, and if being used, Autopay
- Proxibid suggests adding the following statement to the event's Payment Instructions to indicate to bidders that the event is using atgPay: "At the end of the auction, Buyers will receive an invoice with a ‘Pay Now’ button, to checkout simply and securely via card or bank transfer (ACH) using atgPay."
- The Sales Tax Amount field can be left blank or set to 0% as the value entered will be overridden when taxes are automatically calculated based on the bidder's location.
- Since taxes are calculated automatically when using atgPay, auction companies will not be able to edit the Sales Tax Amount field once atgPay is enabled on an event.
3. Update the invoice email to include additional payment details for winning bidders
- This step is if applicable, details on how to update can be found on the Updating the Invoice Email article
5. Verify that the event catalog is compliant with Proxibid's Unified User Agreement
