How Online Auctions Work
Internet auctions are like giant online flea markets. Sellers may offer one item at a time or multiple lots of the same item. In theory, online auctions run much like local auctions, but behind the scenes, there is ongoing data collection. Just like local auctions, there are sellers and bidders and winners and losers. Winners are expected to pay for what they bid on at the conclusion of the auction. But that is where the similarities between online and local auctions end.
At online auctions, you will be required to register before you can buy or sell an item(s). Registration is required to track items you bid on or sell, keep up with the bids, determine the winning bids and build a database on seller and bidder feedback. Setting up an online email account separate from your main email account is recommended to help you track the progress of the auction and prevent spam from coming into your main account.
The bidding for each auction closes at the scheduled time. In the case of sales of multiple lots, the participants with the highest bids at the close of the auction are obligated to buy the items. If no one bids at or above the reserve price, the auction closes without a winner. At the close of a successful auction, the buyer and seller communicate, usually by email, to arrange for payment and delivery of the goods.
3 - Max Bid Feature
The max bid feature helps you plan your bid and get the most out of each offer. Max bidding can especially come in handy during the closing minutes of an auction.
Simply set the maximum price you're willing to pay for a lot and Hibid will automatically bid on your behalf if necessary (up to that amount).
Placing a max bid
After you place an initial bid, we'll provide you with an opportunity to set your maximum bid and bid increment. If a competing bid comes in higher, we'll automatically increase your bid by that increment you specify (up to your ceiling amount).
