Auto-bids keep you in the lead by placing a bid for you whenever you’re outbid. When you’re outbid BuddyBid will place the minimum allowable bid until you win the auction or your auto-bid is exceeded.
To place an auto-bid:
Enter the max bid you are prepared to pay in the bid box
Click 'Place Bid'
Confirm your bid
You're done. BuddyBid will keep you in the lead until you win or your autobid is exceeded. You can increase an existing auto-bid by placing a higher value auto-bid. No additional bid will be placed if you lead the bidding. You cannot decrease the value of your auto-bid.
How it Works
If your auto-bid is below or equal to the reserve, your maximum auto-bid will be placed. If an existing auto-bid is greater than yours, your auto-bid may also jump to it's maximum, and be immediately outbid.
If your auto-bid exceeds the reserve, a bid will be placed equal to the reserve. You will then lead the bidding until your auto-bid is exceeded.
If another member places a bid equal to your auto-bid, your maximum auto-bid will be placed. It will appear as two consecutive bids from you.
Auto-bids have priority over normal bids of the same value as they were placed earlier.
