What is it?

EquipNet OWN IT NOW is a revolutionary platform where the first user to act wins the item at the indicated price.

How does it work?

Listings are offered for an indicated amount of time and drop in price decrements over a fixed amount of time. Time decrements and pricing are specified on each individual listing. The first buyer to click "OWN IT NOW" purchases the item for the price specified when the “OWN IT NOW” button was clicked. Buyers may also enter a proxy for any amount. If the price of the given item drops to the proxy amount before the time clock ends or another buyer acts first to win the item, then the proxy submitted will be the winning amount and that buyer will be the purchaser of the item.


With the EquipNet OWN IT NOW platform, the buyer who acts first, becomes the purchaser of the item. This differs from Smart Auctions and Live and Webcast auction due to the nature of the bidding. During a Smart Auction or Live and Webcast, bidders compete against one another to outbid each other to win the item. With EquipNet OWN IT NOW, there is no bidding. Alternatively users have the option to buy the item at the current price, or delay buying and wait for the item to decrease in price based over the specified timed decrement – though if you wait, you gain the risk of losing the item to another buyer!
