How do I place a bid?

Once you have found an auction item you wish to bid on, enter your bid amount in the bidding area on the item listing page and click the "Place My Bid" button.

Confirm that your bid amount is correct, then click the "Place Bid" button.


After placing your bid, you will receive one of the following confirmation messages on the results screen:


High bid confirmation: If you have entered a high bid, you will be notified that you are currently the high bidder for this item. This does not mean that you have won the auction, only that your bid is currently the high bid. To win, the auction must close without any higher bids.


Outbid confirmation: Another bidder has previously placed an equal or higher bid and you were automatically outbid (in the case of a tie bid, precedence is given to the earlier bid). If this happens and you want to bid again, return to the auction page and enter a higher amount.


Not allowed to bid: Your bid may be not be allowed if you have 3 or more Past Due items on your account or if the seller has blocked bids from your account.
