What to Expect Next

After you place your bid:

  • Your user handle, state of residence, and bid amount will now be displayed as the leading bid in the auction. It will appear on the auction information page. (All your personal identifying information will be kept strictly confidential.)
  • To check your auction's progress, click on the Members link, log in, and view My AuctionWatch.
  • When another bidder outbids you, you will be notified by email.
  • To increase your bid and remain competitive in the auction, click on the link provided in the email and return to the Auction page.
  • If you are bidding on a quantity of more than 1 unit, you may also be partially outbid. For example, say you bid $200 for 2 units and someone bids $250 for 1 unit. You will remain an auction winner for only 1 of the 2 units that you bid on. You will also receive an email saying "You Have Been Partially Outbid."
