A bidding agent can be used as part of the online auctions. After placing a maximum bid, this bidder's bid increases until his maximum bid is reached, as soon as a co-bidder bids, until the bidder is again the highest bidder. The increase takes place automatically and gradually. The bidder is bound by his bid until it is extinguished by a higher bid.
With the help of the automatic bidding agent / maximum bid, bidders can determine the maximum price they are willing to pay for a position. If the maximum bid is outbid by other bidders, a notification is automatically sent by email.
Please enter your maximum bid for a position in the bid field and confirm. The next bid level is then automatically offered, with which you become the highest bidder. The bid levels are set individually for each item prior to an auction.
- If more than one identical maximum bid has been placed, the highest bidder will be the one who placed his maximum bid first.
- If different maximum bids have been placed, they will automatically outbid each other until the bidder with the higher maximum bid is the highest bidder.
- Outbid bidders are notified by email and can place a new maximum bid or adjust their bid.
Example: The position is at a starting price of € 100. You want to pay a maximum of 500 € for this item and enter € 500 in the maximum bid field and confirm.
- Unless there are no other bids, € 100 is automatically offered.
If another interested party then bids for example € 150, the bidding agent automatically increases your bid to the next bid level at the same time, with which you outbid the other's € 150. You therefore remain the highest bidder up to € 500.
