Introduction

Welcome on the partner auction platform!
You will find here some tips about the use of the platform.

The navigation on the platform is simple: on the left, you will find a navigation menu, divided into two groups: "Purchase" (with all the steps of the purchase) and "User account". You can open both groups with a click on [+], and close them with a click on [-].

In the vehicle lists, on the left of every vehicle, you will find a checkbox, and, at the end of the list, an action-box. You will be able to execute directly one action for several objects. To execute an action, the object(s) must be ticked. Then you can choose an action, which will be automatically executed (you won't need to click on "Save").


1. How to register on the platform?

Click on the link "Registrer". The registration is in 3 steps:

1.1. Entering company data

The bold fields must be filled in. The other fields are non-mandatory.

1.1.1 Entering company name

Please enter the company's complete legal denomination (for instance "Smith Auto Ltd.")

1.1.2 Activity

Choose the activity of your company.

1.2. Entering user data

1.2.1. User name

Please choose the user name with which you would like to log in, for instance "smith_auto"or your e-mail address.

1.2.2. Trading licence

Users with the "Trading licence" can place bids and buy articles. You must have the authorization to make those transactions for your company.
Users without the "Trading licence" can look for vehicles on the platform and see their description. However, they can neither bid nor purchase.

1.3.Accept Terms and Conditions and confirm the registration

The registration is valid as soon as the buyer has accepted the Terms and Conditions, printed and sent per fax the final registration form.


2. How to request a new password?

If you have forgotten your password, you can request a new one in the link "New password".
Enter your user name and the e-mail address used by the system. After a few minutes, you will receive an e-mail with a new "cryptic" password.
CHANGE THIS PASSWORD in the navigation link "User account" / "My user account".


3. How to look for an article?

3.1. Current offers

3.1.1. Looking for current offer

In the menu "Purchase", you can click on "Current offers" to see the articles that you can purchase.
You can use the filters if you are looking for a specific make, model or construction type.
You can also use the sorting function.
If you click on one of the objects on the list you will get a full description of the article with basic information, equipment, condition and pictures.

3.1.2. State scale

The different colors describe the vehicle conditions :
- 1 Deep-green means no damages
- 2 Light-green means minor damages
- 3 Yellow means pretty good condition
- 4 Orange means bad condition
- 5 Red means total damaged

3.2. Advanced search

In "Advanced search", you will be able to limit your search to a particular criteria.
For instance, you can look for vehicles with a defined kilometer reading, registration date or any other option.

3.3. Search parameters

If you are often looking for articles with the same criteria, you can save those criteria and directly go to "Search parameters".
You can create and save a search parameter in the menu "Advanced Search" and in the field "save search under the following name". Give a title to your criteria and click on "search". You will receive an e-mail each time that an object with such criteria is online for sale.


4. How to buy an article?

To see the offers, click on "Current Offers" in the menu "Purchase". You can choose an object in the list.
Click on the name of the article to see its informations, equipment, condition, pictures and selling terms.
You can purchase the articles under Closed offers.
If you want to place a bid for an object, you should write your amount in the field "Amount", and click on "Submit" by using your mouse.
You will be redirected to a confirmation screen. Please check the entered amount carefully. To confirm your bid, enter your password and click on "Confim" by using your mouse. To change the amount, you should click on "Back", and make another bid.
Once the bid has been placed, you receive a confirmation e-mail. You will find the object in "List of bids".

4.1. Closed offer

You can enter the amount ("Bid") you would like to pay for the object. The seller will have the possibility to accept or refuse your bid. You will be informed per e-mail about this decision.
You will not receive any information about the bids from other bidders.

Example:
The seller put an object online at 8.500 €.
The buyer A places a bid of 8.810 for the object. For the same object the buyer B offers 8.800.
The seller will choose the bid with the maximal value and received within the communicated amount of time.

5. Other Tips

5.1. Watching offers

If you are interested in an object from the current offers, you can watch it: click first in the checkbox on the left of the object, and choose the action "watch" in the list under the vehicles.
It is also possible here to specify your search with the filter above the list (mark, model, motor type). In "Watched offers", you will find all the offers that you have chosen to watch.

5.2. List of bids

In "List of bids" you will see all the objects for which you have already placed a bid.

5.3. Purchased offers

In "Purchased offers", you will find a list with all the objects you have bought in the same year.

6.2. The different user levels

6.2.2 Location leader

In addition to the rights of the simple user, the location leader can edit the location data and add new users in "User account".

- activated (green tick)
- trading licence (green banknote)
- location leader (medal)
- number of visited pages (page with a green arrow)
- number of logins (key with a green arrow)
- date of the last login (key)

If the location leader blocks a user, the user data will still be available for him. They won't be deleted.
In "Add new employee", the location leader will be able to create an account for a new user. He will assign a user name and password to him. The new user will be able to edit his password after logging in.
An important point is that the location leader must decide whether the new user will have an authorization to purchase objects (whether he will have a trading licence).

6.6. My user account

Every user can see, edit his personal data or change his password.
The user can also edit the e-mail notification parameter, and adjust the regularity of the e-mail notification.
