What is a bid increment?

When someone else places a bid, the site will enter a slightly higher bid for you. The amount the bid increases by is known as a bid increment. Bid increments are lower when the price is low and larger on higher prices. Sometimes you will see bids increase by less than an increment. This means that someone placed a bid slightly higher than your automatic bid amount

What is auto extension?

Auctions Auto extension automatically extends the auctions end time by X seconds, if someone bids in the last Y seconds of the auctions duration.

This site is set to extend auction by 5 minutes if  if someone bid during the last 2 minutes. Many online timed auction sites use this to avoid sniping.

What is Item Watch?

Item watch notifies you via email when someone bids on the auctions that you have added to your Item Watch List.

What is a Proxy Bid?

All bids on this site are proxy bids except for "buy in now" items.  Proxy bids are also known as absentee bids.  If you place the maximum you are willing to pay,  the system will place bids on your behalf up to your maximum bid.  In other words, the system bids for you against other bidders.

For example:  some one bid $100 for an item, someone else bid $120 and you bid $500.  When the auction closes, you win the item for $122.50.  This assumes a system with $2.50 bidding increments.  You would only pay the $500 if someone else bid $495 

Is there a buyer's premium?

There is a 5% buyer's premium added to the closing price
