Once you’ve found an item that you would like to bid on you can enter your bid amount in the space provided and press the Bid button. You will see the minimum bid required in the box next to the bid button.

You are required to register an account or login when you return. When you’ve entered your bid amount, you will be taken to a confirmation page, where you can set an optional automatic bid limit and check the shipping charges.

The automatic bid feature bids on your behalf up to the maximum amount that you have specified. It will not necessarily increase your bid amount to the maximum amount you have specified, but only high enough to meet the current highest bid amount. This feature is very useful to prevent getting outbid in the last seconds of the auction before you are able to increase your bid.

You will receive an email confirming your bid, and every time the automatic bid feature bids on your behalf if you chose this option. It is important to remember to refresh your page regularly to ensure you have the most up to date information regarding the bids being placed on the item.  Failure to do so, may result in you being outbid without realising it.  By constantly refreshing the page you are ensuring the information contained on the page is updated and current.
