The bidding system allows for an “automatic incremental bid” where the bidder enters the bidder’s maximum amount but it only bids up to the next nearest amount.  This saves the bidder from having to re-bid after another bidder bids.  The bidding platform gives priority to Auto/Max bids.  For example, if Bidder “A” has a max bid of $50,000 and Bidder “B” enters a single bid of $50,000, Bidder “A’s” max bid will prevail.  The system will only bid for the bidder up to the next increment.  It is advisable to utilize an Auto/Max bid.


If a bid is received within the final 5 minutes of the auction closing, the bidding will automatically extend for another 15 minutes and will continue to do so until bidding ceases.  This is the online version of a live auctioneer’s “Going Once, Going Twice…”
