Participating in auctions

When you’ve confirmed your account, you are able to participate in active auctions. When you’re bidding there are two ways to place your bid: a regular bid and an autobid. A regular bid is a one-time bid you place at that moment for the amount you’ve entered. An autobid is a bid function that automatically places a new bet when you’ve been outbid. (Important!) All bids placed are placed in £ (GBP).

The bid that’s entered in the example picture is £1600. If you press the ‘Place bid’ button, you would bid £1600. If you press the ‘Autobid’ button, the box next to it will become checked. This means that the autobid function is enabled when making a bid. This will set the maximum amount you are willing to bid for, but only overbid the current highest bid, up until your set amount.

Our bid increments are:

The starting bid is £100
£100 to £250 › £20
£250 to £500 › £30
£500 to £1000 › £50
£1000 to £2500 › £100
Above £2500 › £200

For example, if the current bid is increment is £600, the minimum bid increment is £50. That means that if you would place an autobid with a bidding limit of £1500. The autobid function would place a bid of £650. When you get outbid, it automatically raises the bid with the current bid increment. The autobid function automatically stops at the given limit.
