Rolling Auction page
There are some things going on here, so let's break them down:
The lowest amount you can input as a bid. In the example above it's 0.09 NEAR.
The current offer that is winning the auction. The auction only ends, if the Owner accepts an offer.
In this table you can visualize the offer history on the specific token.
If more than 1 token is listed as Rolling Auction, you can navigate between them in this upper tab:
Tab to navigate different auctions
In this example there are 2 tokens currently listed as Rolling Auction and one old auction that has ended (CLOSED). Both listed tokens have offers, if they were empty the tab would say NO OFFERS.
Rolling Auction Page highlighting where to make an offer
While logged in, type in your offer in the Make Offer field. It needs to be higher then the Minimum and Current offers.
After you typed the Make Offer button will become active. Click it an you will be redirected to the NEAR wallet to validate the transaction. After this your offer is recorded on the blockchain.
When you make an offer, your funds get into escrow and there are 3 things that can happen:
In this case your funds go to the owner and you got yourself a new NFT. Nice!
Someone made an offer higher than yours. In this case, you don't need to do anything and your funds get back to you automatically.
You have the highest offer but after 24 hours the Owner has not accepted it. In this case, you need to manually withdraw your offer from escrow. Two ways to do it:
- On the Rolling Auction page, in the Offers table, find your offer and click Withdraw.
- Click your profile picture in the navbar (or on mobile on the hamburger menu) and click on Earned & Orders. On the tab navigate to Open Orders. In the My Offers table, click Withdraw.
- When you bid, you put your NEAR into escrow
- When you get outbidded your funds are automatically released from escrow
- The owner of the listing can accept anytime within 24 hours, or later if you do not withdraw your offer
- After an offer you placed unlock, you can pull back your NEAR from escrow by pressing Withdraw on the Rolling Auction page, or on the My Offers page (which you can find in the Launchpad)
- After 24 hours that an offer is made, the offerer can withdraw it and you will no longer be able to accept it
