What does a reminder do?

Reminders can be set on items you find by browsing or searching the Catalogs. After a reminder is set, shortly before it opens for bids, we'll notify you that the item is coming up in a live auction.
Some items shown in the Catalogs aren't scheduled into live auctions very often. Setting a reminder will ensure that you will receive a notification if the item does get scheduled in a live auction.
If your reminders are arriving late or sporadically, be sure your cellular or WiFi connection is strong. Even a brief service interruption could result in a delay of your reminders.
