When popcorn bidding is enabled, an item will stay open after your auction time block closes if (and only if!) there is bid activity within 5 minutes of the auction closing. The item will remain open until there is no bid activity for 5 full minutes, at which time the item will close. Follow these steps to activate popcorn bidding on individual items:
