Processing Vehicles for EBlock Timed Events

This product will be used in addition to listing inventory on the Pipeline/Marketplace BNMO and Multi-List channels. Please modify the expiration dates for inventory going onto EBlock to avoid double sales. After the EBlock event, list any EBlock No Sales back into BNMO and Multi-List channels.

Initial Setup (must be completed prior to first sale event)

  • Create an EB lane in your AMS 
  • Created (weekly) sale event(s) in your AMS
  • The Edge team will work with you to create an EB virtual lot and mapped the EB run range in Edge Admin
  • Create (weekly) event in Edge Admin. It is recommended to setup a new event template that can be applied weekly to event days in the Events section of Edge Admin

What you should do Before and After the EBlock Event

Before the EBlock Event:

Step 1: DO NOT perform Lot Turn on sale day; wait until the next morning to perform AMS Lot Turn to the upcoming EBlock sale date (instead of to the next week’s regular sale date)

Step 2: In the AMS, line up desired inventory to the EBlock sale on an EB run number

Step 3: In EDGE Admin, no later than the day before the event:

  • (Events) verify the event has been created 
  • (Online Sale > EBlock) Set only the EB Virtual Lot to the EBlock event
  • (Online Sale > EBlock) View/Ship Inventory

After the EBlock Event:

Step 4: Work any IF bids/Offers

  • The Pending tab in EBlock contains offers submitted by Buyers

  • For initial roll out, work IFs or Offers as you normally do by contacting the seller directly. Auctions should enter counter offers and mark any accepted offers in the EBlock app

Step 5: Download sale results from EBlock

Step 6: Sell the vehicle in ASI (via 1-3-3 menu)

Step 7: Re-list remaining no-sales on BNMO or LM as applicable with the standard expiration date/time

  • If posting through EDGE Admin (Web Info > Buy Now/Make Offer) on the same day after the EBlock event, use the Today tab to Add All to Workspace and follow auction listing practice
  • Note: the Today tab only appears when there is a sale event for the current day 

Step 8: Perform ASI Lot Turn again. Point to the regular upcoming sale date 

  • You may perform lot turn on same day after an EBlock event
