What is a staggered close? What is a soft close?
A staggered close is where each lot ends at set increments after the previous lot, so all lots don’t end at the same time. A soft close is where bidding activity extends 4 minutes per lot if there is bidding activity within the last four minutes. Bidding will be extended until there are no more bids.
What is a maximum bid?
A maximum bid is the highest amount you are willing to pay and the computer will automatically bid up to your max amount in the increments specified should someone else bid on the item. Example #1: if the bid is at $20.00 and you put a max bid of $250.00 you would be the high bid at $21.00 and you would be the winner at $21.00 unless someone was bidding against you. It would take someone bidding against you to increase your bid. Example: #2 If the bid is at $20.00 and you bid $250.00 and someone else has placed a bid of $150.00 then your bid would be advanced to $160.00, and if the auction ends at $160.00 that is what you pay, not $250.00 . It would take someone bidding against you to advance your bid.
