BID HERE panel
"desired quantity" and the
"amount of your bid"
NOTE: The amount entered can be above the minimum amount and will then act as the maximum for the Auto-Bid system. The Auto-Bid system will seek to fulfil your "desired quantity" at the lowest possible price. When other bidders enter a higher bid than the current bid, the auto-bid system will automatically increase your bid by the smallest possible increment to keep you as the winning bidder, but only up to amount you entered as the bid amount. You can see the current bid and your maximum bid amount on the My Account – Bidding page
NOTE: "Minimum bid" is the minimum amount you can place on an item if part of its total quantity is still un-allocated, or when you have an existing bid having the same amount. On the above example, if the user enters $41.00 as bid amount, the bid will be deemed invalid because all 10 of the available quantity have been allocated to other bidders.
