You can easily run your auction through your Facebook page.

Please Note: Due to the parameters of Facebook, to add a custom tab your page must have at least 2,000 followers and likes. If it does not you will get an error message that says “This page does not have permission to install the custom tab.” 

If you meet these parameters, here are the steps to connect your auction to Facebook.

Step 1) From the Auction Dashboard, click on Invite & Promote > Add Auction To Facebook.


Step 2) Click the green button to “Add To Facebook Page”.

Step 4) Once you “Add Page Tab”, you can head over to your Facebook page to update the tab headline. When you first arrive at your Facebook page, you will need to click “See More” to view all your page tabs.
