Prior to bidding, your credit card must be authenticated. A $10.00 authorization hold will be placed on the credit card you choose for each specific auction, and you can use a different card for each auction you bid on. For your security and protection, we do not store credit card information other than that required for a specific auction you are bidding on and it is removed from our system once that auction closes. Whether you win that auction or not, the $10.00 will be released upon the auction closing and you should see it released or credited back on your statement within 3 days, subject to the credit card issuer. Bids are placed in $5 increments. When you place a bid by entering the amount in the Starting Bid field, that amount will automatically be entered in the Maximum Bid field. If you are outbid, you will receive an email alert with a link back to that auction, providing you the opportunity to place another bid. You can also bid on a budget, by entering a higher amount in the Maximum Bid field - in increments of $10 as the next bid higher than your Starting Bid will be $5 higher than your bid, so your counter bid would need to be $5 higher, so it is best to always enter a range in $10 increments when bidding on a budget. And if you elect this method of bidding, our system will automatically enter your next bid if your are outbid, and will never exceed your Maximum Bid amount. Being a winner is easy!
