Max bids save you time because you don’t have to watch the auction or attend the live auction – the computer bids for you. Max bids make sure that your bids are recognized, just in case you have to leave your desk, bids don’t register prior to item closing due to slow or delayed modem, or something happens to your Internet connection during the auction.

They will make sure that you don’t miss out on lots just because you are bidding on another lot.

A max bid is one you enter in the maximum field and represents the highest amount you are willing to bid for a particular lot. Once you enter a max bid, BargainBob.com software will bid for you up to that amount, increasing your bid by the minimum bid increment only when you have been outbid by another bidder. You could win the lot for less than the max bid you entered.

Internet auctions are a method of selling merchandise on the wide world web via a computer server. Products are photographed and a description is written for each item. Typically an internet auction last hours or days but this can change auction to auction, so please make sure to look at the details. The bidding is done by computer with a bidder entering the opening bid and subsequent bidders entering increasingly higher bids until the final bid is made on the last day. The winning bidder is contacted via computer and sends payment for the item. Then the product is picked up by or shipped to the bidder. In Internet Auctions, all lots are listed in an online catalog and are available for viewing and bidding for a certain number of hours or days prior to the event.
