We know how fast things happen in a timed auction, so we’ve added a bid box for you to place your bids directly from the Catalog Page once approved in a Timed auction. This feature is available in both list and grid views.
After inputting your Max Bid amount, you'll see a pop up that asks you to confirm the bid being placed. This gives you the opportunity to read the full lot description and double check your bid amount before placing the bid.
Clicking 'Cancel' will close the pop-up and no bid will be placed.
Clicking 'Confirm' places the bid.
After your bid has been placed, you'll will see a “Bid Successful” notification in the upper right of the catalog page as well as see "Leading" on the top left of the lot itself.
If the bid can't be placed (i.e. less than the next minimum bid, or off increment) you will see a notification message advising what needs to be changed and you can edit your bid.
Please note that if you attempt to place a bid that is off increment, you'll receive an error detailing that the attempted bid is off increment and suggesting valid bid amounts.
Of course you will still be able to place bids on the lot page as you've always done.
- Quick Bidding is currently only available on Timed auctions.
