How to Place a Bid

When you see an item you are interested in, simply click on it to view details and any restrictions.  If you are interest in bidding enter you bid in the grey box on the right hand side of the screen.  If you choose “Bid up to this amount” it is a proxy bid, if you choose “Bid this exact amount” it is a straight bid.  (See below for more details.)  Then simply click “Place Bid”.  Some items are a set price or “Buy Now” only items, the price will not change or increase as and you will only be charged the stated price.

 

How does proxy bidding work?

Proxy bidding is a convenient way for you to bid competitively for an item without having to return to the site every time another user places a bid. Enter the maximum amount you ultimately would be willing to pay for the item and check the "Proxy Bid" option. The auction program then bids on your behalf against other bidders, up to the amount entered. It will never enter a bid of more than the prior bid plus one automated increment. As the auction continues, you will be notified by email if you are finally outbid.

How does straight bidding work?

Straight bidding is an easy way for you to place a bid higher than the minimum increment immediately, rather than as bidding on an item picks up. Enter the amount you would like to bid on an item, and check the "Straight Bid" option. The bid will be placed immediately at the amount entered. As the auction continues, you will be notified by email if you are outbid. Please note that not all organizations choose to make the Straight Bidding feature available.
