    Well I've been purchasing domains on Godaddy auctions for a while now.
    It's great and all but the thing that bugs me is the fact that I only can change my whois details AFTER the domain is transferred to me.
    Is there any way to preset my whois details (need individual unique details for each domain) when purchasing the domains off godaddy auctions?

    I can't have every single one of my domains being private whois - huge footprint right there.
    Besides I don't feel like paying $10 for something I could have obtained for free at NameCheap.

    Yes but don't I have to wait 60 days in order to transfer the domain after buying it on an auction?

    You are not unable to transfer your domain to a new company within the first 60 days of registration. Since the domain you are buying from the auction is presumably more than 60 days old you should be able to transfer it from GoDaddy to Namecheap. I would contact GoDaddy in case they have rules or terms that limit you from transferring the domain after the auction.
