HELPFUL ITEMS ABOUT BIDDING IN AN INTERNET AUCTION
PLACING A BID
Click the “Bid” button for the horse that you are interested in.
Next Bid is … indicates what the next bid needs to be in order to get your bid IN. Bidding is set in increment amounts throughout.
If two bidders bid at the same time, the first bid that reaches the internet auction system will be given the amount that was bid. The second bidder will be asked to bid the next available amount.
Click only once to place a bid, Your bid will be visible the next time your page refreshes.
MAX BID OR AUTOMATIC BID
When you set a Max Bid the auction software automatically bids on your behalf up to your maximum bid. If the lot ends for less than your maximum, that’s all you have to pay. You won’t have to keep coming back to re-bid every time another bid is placed. Your maximum is kept confidential from other bidders.
The system will only bid up to your maximum amount necessary to maintain you as the high bidder. If another bidder has a higher maximum, you will be outbid. But, if no other bidder has a higher maximum, you will win the lot. You could pay less than your maximum price!
PLEASE Review your Bid BEFORE you click the BID button.
Using the single Bid button will not be as quick as using the Automatic Bid.
Due to slow internet connections, we cannot guarantee last second bids will get through every time, so please don’t wait when bidding one bid at a time. We suggest utilizing the automatic/max bid button to ensure your bids are accepted.
