Things to change after the item is submitted:

- Change the Starting Bid and Raise amounts by either editing the item or clicking on the number in those columns. The item will automatically be set to a silent item. The starting bid is configured by 10% of the FMV, The bid increments are configured by 35% of the FMV added in the form by the donor. Both rounded up to the nearest $5.00 increments. 

- If you would like to add a "Buy It Now" price that will need to be done on the manage items page as well.
