How to bid?

 

Registering

To place bids, you need to create an account by clicking on “Register to bid,” which is very easy and takes only a few minutes.
You’ll be asked for your full contact details, as well as bank details.

Bidding

Once you’re connected, bidding is very simple. Simply type your maximum bid in the box, and our software will then bid on your behalf up to the amount registred – and never higher. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid, you’ll be notified by email. After validating your maximum bid, you cannot change it unless you want to raise it up.

The auction's end time is the time in which the system is automatically going to award the lots. It awards one lot per minute, so if, for instance, the auction end time is 2 pm o’clock, at that moment the system is going to award the lot #1, at 2:01 pm the lot #2 and so on… Each lot have a specific end time which you can find at the lot’s description.

If there is a last minute bid, additional 3 minutes are added to the timer. It allows bidders to bid again without disturbing the other lots timers.

At the end of the auction countdown time, you win the auction if no other bidder has placed a maximum bid that is higher than yours.

Tracking

In your account, you’ll find a dashboard where you can track your auctions and favourites.

At the end of the auction, on your account you will find your invoice stating your purchase.
