After your auction has ended, you can disable the auction link by "Archiving" the auction. This will cancel the auction link so bidders will not be able to find the auction anymore.
You can always Unarchive the auction to pull information or reactivate the link.
Step 1) Go to Auctions > then Manage Auctions.
Step 2) Click on the green box in the lower right corner.
Step 3) Click Archive Auction.
