While bidding, any bidder can choose to add a maximum bid amount at any time.  The maximum bid box uses a system also known as 'proxy bidding'; meaning that the system will bid on your behalf until your max bid is met. The amount entered in the maximum bid box is not visible to other bidders.  The system will use this amount to compare bids submitted by all bidders and will award the high bid to the bidder with the highest maximum bid at the most competitive bid amount. For example, if bidder 1 enters a $50 maximum bid and bidder 2 enters a $50 maximum bid, the system will award the bid to bidder 1 for $50, as that bid was entered first.  Don't give up!  You can still place bids until the item closes.

If you have any questions, make sure to grab the item number and contact us so that we can review the bid history with you!
