Are you logged in? 💻
Before you can place bids on auction items, you'll need to make sure you're registered for the relevant auction! Once you're registered and logged in, you'll see the following three options on the campaign's auction page: Saved, My Bids, and Settings.
Click on the item you'd like to place a bid on to get started!
Placing a bid 🤑
You can place bids on auction items on mobile and desktop devices, as long as you have internet access. The prompts are the same, regardless of device.
There are two ways an auction can be configured by the auction organizer.
Standard bidding 💳
If you're prompted to Enter your bid amount, enter the amount you'd like to bid on this item – doing so will place a single bid on the item.
Automated bidding + max bids 📈
If you're prompted to Set your maximum bid, enter the maximum amount you'd like to spend on this item, and our system will automatically place bids for you (calculating the lowest price that would make you the winner), up to the maximum price you've specified.
What if two bidders enter the same max bid? Who will win?
If two people have the same max bid set, the person who entered their max bid first will win the item. Please note that the bid timestamps will reflect this, and therefore may appear out of order. This is expected.
I'm being asked to enter a max bid, but I don't want to use automated bidding.
While you cannot change the bidding method on the auction (this is selected by the organizer), all you need to do is place a max bid for the amount you'd like to start off at. Our system will never bid above the price you enter.
I'm registered to bid, but I'm not finding the auction. Where is the auction?
Once you're on the campaign page, there should be two tabs at the top of the page. One says Campaign, and one says Auction. You need to be on the Auction page to access the auction items and place bids.
