  • Note - The auction software used in the Payment, Shipping and Description sections was simplified to speed up loading new auction items. However, if you are copying information from a word processor document you should first click on "Turn Off HTML Editor" at the bottom of the form for entering data. Then paste the text from your word processor document. If you need to edit this info (for font, color or structure) click on "Turn On HTML Editor" and make the changes. If you do not follow this procedure you will end up with lots of extra words and numbers (code) in the final version.
