How do I bid?

  1. On the BID HERE panel

    1. Enter the "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

    2. Click Place Bid

    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.

  2. Confirm your bid by clicking Accept Bid

    If you are asked to enter your "email address" and "password" when confirming your bid, even when you are already logged in, your cookies may not be enabled.

  3. If successful, you will be informed that your bid has been accepted. The total quantity of items won compared with the quantity you desired and your maximum bid will also be shown on the page. And on the HIGHEST BIDDERS panel your bid will be displayed in bold text

    If your bid is unsuccessful, the message below will be shown. This may happen when another bidder has a maximum auto-bid amount higher than what you placed.

    Or if your bid is invalid, an error message in red text will be displayed.
