Auction procedure

Auction procedure
March 26, 2011 02:33PM
I've listed 7 items on the auction and have bids on 4. The auctions end Sunday night (MDT). What is the procedure after the auction closes? Do I create an invoice and send it to the buyer? How do we get each other's email address? I'm quite computer illiterate so if the answers to this are obvious, then I apologize.

Thanks for creating the Mindat Auctions, a great service to the Mindat "members".

Is there a mechanism for editing an item before reposting? e.g. price and number of days of auction.

I'm enjoying the Mindat Auctions as a seller. I've sold quite a number of pieces in the past 2 months or so.
