Slightly altered Auction and Drawing order creation / checkout flow

Happy November everyone!

I was just realizing that the previous Auction and Drawing order creation and checkout flow was a bit awkward. The system was creating separate orders for every Auction and Drawing listing as it ended, and then adding another order when the customer checked out. This left a lot of redundant orders in the system. I’ve changed the flow now so that Auction and Drawings create pending orders in the system when they end, similar to Buy Now pending orders. you can view your pending orders at the bottom of the Order History page. As customers check out, these pending orders should disappear and then show up in the regular order history. Hopefully, this will simplify the flow and make it more intuitive.

Please let me know if this change causes any confusion or difficulty.

Thanks everyone!
