Frequently asked questions
How do I sign in?
The first time you place a bid, you will see the option to create an account on the checkout page. After that, the system will remember your information, so you will not need to sign in again.Alternatively, you can click 'log in' in the header at the top of the page, where you will be prompted to either log inor create an account. The reason why we ask people to log in is so that we can streamline the bidding process --from outbid notifications to receipts to being connected with your item at the end.
What is the difference between a Max Bid or Regular Bid?
When you are placing a bid, you have the option to set a Regular bid, or place a Max bid. A max bid is the most you are willing to bid on a particular item. After placing a max bid, your bid will increase incrementally $25 from the current bid whenever another bidder makes a Regular bid that is less than your max bid.
How do I confirm my bid options?
