We know that the end of an online auction can be a hectic place. Here are some tips & things you should know to help make it a little easier…


Lots will end 30 seconds apart.


To prevent bid sniping, last-minute bids will extend individual lots using our ‘soft-close’ functionality.

  • If a bid is placed in the last 10 minutes, the lot will remain open for an additional 10 minutes.
  • If any further bidding occurs, the extension timer will reset to 10 minutes.
  • If no further bidding occurs, the lot closes when the timer runs out.

Place your max bid and let the system bid for you. In the event two bidders have placed identical max bids, the first bid received will be the successful bid.


You can “watch” lots for an easier way to keep track of items you’re interested in.
