4 Ways to Buy

To answer any questions you might have around the different buying opportunities we offer. The list below has information around all of our most useful buying/bidding types.


    Bidding starts with a low price and is raised incrementally as progressively higher bids are made, until either the auction is closed or no higher bids are received.

    • Buyers place competing bids to purchase a lot using a set increment
    • Overtime period for extended bidding is set by site
    • Highest bid at or above the reserve wins the lot
    • Set reserve
    • Hidden or open reserve
    • Set open and close time
  2. BUY NOW

    This is an immediate sale. A fixed price is set as an option to purchase the item immediately without having to bid.

    • Inventory can be immediately purchased at a set price
    • Set price
