    a little question to those that have participated in the past...
    who pays for the shipping of the goods?
    is it the donor of the plant/other stuff?
    or is it, the winner of the highest bid...
    i've never bid in an auction before, let alone a benefit auction, so i'm curious to know how it works... if the rules are coming out soon, i can wait for the answer till then

    Hi blokeman, it will be stated in each auction whom will be responsible for shipping. Some auctions have free shipping while others require the highest bidder to pay. I'll have to request that the winners pay shipping again this year as I'm still poor .

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    So, I may have missed it but, when does the auction open? lol, and when does it close?

    Edit: I knew i would see right after I posted this!
    LISTING PERIOD starts Saturday, April 11th, NOON (Eastern DS Time) through Saturday, April 25th, 10 p.m. Eastern DS Time
    Does eastern ds mean eastern standard time?

    Crystal is correct. Just to be more clear though, if a listing says you will have to pay for shipping, then you mail your winning bid amount to NASC, and the shipping cost to the lister. So if you won my, say... Nepenthes dragon collection for $30 and I said the winner would pay for shipping (around $7) you would send $30 to NASC and $7 to me. Once both of those have been indicated as paid, I would ship the plant. There will be a timeline (typically two weeks) for payment to be made, then another timeline for plants or items to be shipped.

    I think it means Daylight Savings time, so in accordance with the rules of springing forward and falling back.

    Heh, my computer isn't working right now, so hopefully I can still get a chance of possibly participating. I have some S. leucos I'd like to give out.

    What I generally do for shipping is to say that I'll pay for shipping if an item I donate sells for more than a certain amount. I make it a reasonably low number, since I want people to bid freely for items without having to consider shipping costs, but don't want to pay for shipping if someone is getting a bargain. I can afford to pay the shipping cost at this point in my life and see it as an indirect donation to NASC. I couldn't have done it 20 years ago.

    It backfired a little after the USPS switched to volumetric weight pricing and my wife dropped off some packages for me. She paid well over $20 for individual packages I had expected to cost ~$6. Shipping for one was more than what the person had bid. I've learned to customize boxes to keep packages within the all-important 1728 cubic inches (or whatever 12x12x12 is). I redo the math every time just to be sure. People shipping by priority mail can save themselves or the recipient a lot of money if they can keep the box smaller than that, without damaging the plant, of course.
