What you need to know about Dollar.Bid
Dollar.Bid is an online liquidation mix of unclaimed goods, misguided and/or damaged freight, overstock, shelf-pulls and customer returns.
All Sales are Final - Items are sold AS-IS with no warranty (unless included in description) and no refunds will be made. In the event an incorrect item is listed, Dollar.Bid will offer a replacement of the correct item or issue a refund. Under no circumstance will a refund be given after 2 weeks from the auction’s closing date.
To eliminate “bid sniping”, if a bid is placed on an item within the final minute of bidding, the closing time on this lot will extend an additional 30 seconds. This allows all bidders a fair chance to bid their maximum amount.
Bidders can place a proxy bid on any lot, which is a MAXIMUM bid on a particular lot. Bids will only increase in the lowest increment possible to keep the bidder's bid as the winning, until max bid is exceeded
Example: Bidder is first bidder on an item. Places proxy bid for $10, but bidder will be winning item at $1. When another bidder bids $2, the proxy bid will automatically bid $3. This will continue until the max bid is exceeded by another bidder.
