    • Proxy Bidding

    Standard & Proxy Bidding

    Standard bidding is the most common way to bid on an item, and is exactly the same as the process used in real-world auction rooms. You bid the minimum amount needed to outbid the current high bidder.

    A Proxy bid means that you bid an amount that is higher than necessary. The auction software will raise your actual bid to the minimum necessary, but will remember your maximum.

    If someone else comes along and tries to outbid you, the auction software will automatically place additional bids on your behalf up to the value of your proxy bid. This means you can stay on top of the bidding without having to be near a computer.

  • Some sellers allow items to be purchased instantly at a fixed price, regardless of any auction bidding that has taken place. This feature is called Buy Out.

    You will see a logo in item listings offering the Buy Out facility. The Buy Out price will be stated directly below the Buy Out button.

    1. 1. To purchase an item with Buy Out, click on the Buy Out button.
    2. 2. You will be taken to a confirmation page showing the Buy Out price, postage costs and payment methods for the item.
    3. 3. Click Proceed if you are happy to continue.
    4. 4. Your purchase will now be confirmed and you will be able to pay the invoice.
  • Instead of monetary offers, some sellers will accept Trade Offers - offers of an item of value as part payment plus a Cash Balance in exchange for the item being sold. The Trade offer process works in a very similar way to the standard Make Offer process.

    1. 1) If the seller of the item you are interested in accepts Trade Offers, you will see an entry like this in the item listing.
    2. 2) Click on the Make An Offer link and enter a description of the Trade you are proposing.
    3. 3) Click Proceed and you will see a confirmation message confirming that your Trade offer has been passed to the seller.
  • If you want to Bid an amount greater than the next Bid Increment type in your high bid tick ? the box beside that amount and when you submit your Bid the full amount will be used as your Bid and will show on the site immediately.

    If someone else has put in a higher proxy Bid, you can Bid again if you wish.

    Some Bidders prefer to put a larger Bid in straight up to remove some or all the Competition.

  • Some sellers allow potential buyers to make an offer to buy their items, to avoid having to wait for the auction to finish. If a seller is open to offers, you will see a logo in the item listing:

    1. 1) If you would like to make an offer, click on the icon.
    2. 2) On the Make Offer page, enter the amount you would like to offer (Remember - your offer must be in the price range specified):
    3. 3) Click Proceed to continue and your offer will be confirmed and submitted to the seller.

  • If your Pre - Bid is outbid during the live Auction you can Bid again if you wish.

    If your Pre -Bid is above the Reserve, the amount needed to place the Item “On the Market “ will be used and the balance only used if you get out bid using the next Bid Increment required to keep you in the Highest Bid Position.

  • The Agents will be in touch to finalise the process.
