Bidding Help:

  • Our online auctions use a Maximum Bid system similar to eBay's bidding system. When you place a bid in the Maximum Bid box, the bidding system will enter your bid as the next required bid and continue to bid for you up to your Maximum Bid amount. For example, if the next required bid is $100.00, and you enter $500.00, then the online bidding system will immediately enter your bid as $100.00. The bidding system will continue to bid up to $500.00 on your behalf using the preset auction increments as other bidders place their bids. Another example: say you are the high bidder at $300.00 with a Maximum Bid of $800.00, and another bidder places the next required bid of $310.00, then the online bidding system will bid for you at the next increment of $320.00, and so on. If at such time a bidder places a bid that is higher than your Maximum Bid of $800.00, then you will be outbid. If you are not outbid, then it is possible that you may win the item for an amount less than your Maximum Bid.

  • The first time you bid in a new auction, it will ask you to check the box to agree to the auction terms.
