When you've located an auction that you wish to participate in, you will need to be approved by the auctioneer before you can start bidding. Some auctioneers will require a pre-authorization, or deposit, before they will approve you. The deposit is listed in their terms and conditions and is taken before approval. If the deposit failed, the auctioneer may send a pre-authorization request that will allow you to pick a different card on your account or add a new one.

After clicking "Save Changes", the pre-authorization will be submitted and you'll see a message like so:
If your deposit is successful, you will receive an email confirmation.
