Sample Email for the Last Days of an Auction

We often suggest that you email your past, current and new bidders an email to let them know that the auction is closing today or the next day.  It is just a simple email reminding them to come and bid before the auction ends.

The Email Bidders program uses ‘tags’.  You insert a tag and let the computer fill in the information required. This is an example of a tag: Hi [customer_name]. The person receiving the email will see Hi Jane.
