Adding your billing information
You must add your bling information before you are able to place a bid. We require this information before bids are places to minimise fraudulent bidding and eliminate people that do not actually intend on winning items. This helps control the auction so the nodding amounts are valid and are not driven up by unrealistic amounts by users that do not intend to win and pay for the items.
Once adding your billing information, we will do a £4 authorisation on your card to ensure it is a valid card. This amount is never charged to you and will only see this as a pending amount. You will not be charged any amount unless you are the winning bidder of an auction item. The auction will close at its set time and your credit card will be charged at that time.

Placing a bid
You must place a bid following the bid increments specified on the listing page. As an example, if the current bid is £100 and the bid increment is set to £10, you must enter a bid of £110.
This system offers a convenient automated bidding system, so you don't have to continuously login to re-bid. When you place a maximum bid, you enter the highest price you are willing to pay for an item. Your maximum bid is kept confidential until it is exceeded by another bidder. The automatic bidding system will place bids on your behalf at the bid increment amount above the current high bid. The system will bid by the increment to ensure you remain the highest bidder or to meet the reserve price (if applicable), up to your maximum bid amount that was previously entered. If and only if duplicate maximum bids are entered, the customer who entered the maximum bid first will get priority and will be the winning bidder. If another bidder places a higher maximum bid, you will be emailed to login and place another bid.
