BID STEPS / TIE-BREAKS
A maximum of 3 bid steps can be applied to all or some of your bids in the event of a tie. Bid steps are applied as follows...
If bids are still tied after bid steps have been applied, the earlier bidder takes priority.
BABS : Bag A Bargain System
BABS lots are those items which have been unsold 5 times or more (marked US5, US6 etc...) AND have estimates of £12 of less. These lots are reserved at 99p and you can bid any amount you wish at or above this level. Standard bid steps (as noted above) apply to BABS lots so if you do not wish bid steps to apply to BABS lots, please indicate clearly on your bid form.
If you are bidding to a budget, you can specify an overall spending limit when you bid.
e.g... You can bid on items which, if you were to win them all, would cost £500, but if you specify a spending limit of £300, once your spending limit has been reached you will not win any more items.
NB - £60 GBP is the minimum spending limit we can accept.
We are happy to accept conditional (either/or) bids - just list the items in order of preference and either mark them as "one lot only",
lot 1234 @ £35 }
lot 1235 @ £32 } - one lot only
lot 1236 @ £37 }
... or list them as either/or on your bid form,
