BID EXTENSION

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.

 

PROXY BID

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.
