Placing a Bid:

Once you have decided to place a bid you will need to have your Member ID and Password handy. The minimum amount you must bid is displayed with the listing. When entering your bid, enter only numbers and decimal points. Do not enter dollar signs or commas.

Once you enter your bid, you will be asked to confirm your bid. Be careful. You may not retract a bid once placed.

Bidding When Quantities are Available:

Dutch auctions are held when more than 1 of a certain item is available at the same time. When bidding on a Dutch auction, you will need to provide both your bid amount and the quantity you are bidding on.

At the end of the auction the system will determine the winners by looking at the following in this order: Bid Amount, Quantity Bid, and time the bid was placed. The winning bids on the items will then be changed to the amount bid by the lowest winning bid.

Bidding on Regular Listings:

When entering a bid amount, you may choose to enter only what is necessary (and make it easy for someone to outbid you!), or you may enter a Maximum Bid.

A Maximum Bid is a confidential bid that is used to bid for you should someone raise the bid. The smallest amount of your Maximum Bid necessary to be the high bidder is used when placing your bid.

If an auction item contains a Buy Price bidding will immediately end if your bid meets this price.

Bidding Results:

After you have placed your bids, you will be informed if your bid has been accepted. If a higher bid is needed you will be informed and allowed to place another bid.

At the close of the auction, or when you purchase something outright, you will be notified by email. If you have won or purchased multiple items, these items can be combined by requesting an invoice from the seller.

Tracking Bids:

The Bid Tracker, located in the Members Area, keeps track of listings that you have bid on or marked to watch.

Tracking Purchases:

The Invoices for Purchases tool, located in the Members Area, keeps track of items you have purchased.
