How To Bid

Log In

You must be logged in to place online bids. If you do not have an account created, click the 'Login/Register' link in the upper right hand corner of your screen, the click on 'Create an Account' in the bottom of that window to begin creating your account. Once your account has been created, you will need to log into the catalog of your choice and agree to the terms and conditions. There will be terms and conditions you'll have to accept at account creation as well as the auctions terms and conditions you'll have to accept on registering for EACH auction. After the auction company approves your registration, you can place your bid(s).

Place Your Bid

Once you have logged into either or the affiliate companies website, you may place a bid from an individual lot on the catalog or lot detail page. 

Verify Your Bid

Before your bid is finalized, you will be prompted to confirm your bid amount.

Submit Bid

"You are about to enter a legally binding contract. Once a bid is placed it cannot be retracted. Do not bid unless you intend to buy this item at the amount of your bid." This is the prompt from the window that appears when you click on 'Bid Now'. There will also be text box where you can enter in your bid amount in the form of $ X.XX. You can enter in a max bid here as well, and the window has a blue (?) that explains what a max bid is.  Once you have verified the amount you wish to bid, click 'Confirm Bid'.

If the Ultimate Choice Bidding Platform is being utilized there is no max bidding feature. Once you have clicked on the lot or combination of lots and click get price you then have two options. You can simply click submit bid to enter the bid at the amount displayed or you can enter a higher bid in the space provided. Your bid will be implemented at this amount. This is not max bidding, so the bid will be placed at the exact amount you enter.

Keep Track of Your Bids

You will receive an email notification if you have been outbid (if elected, you can also receive a text notification). Notifications can be configured from your Account Settings under the preferences tab.
