# What Is Proxy Bidding? (updated)


aka Max Bid (formerly Proxy Bidding)

When enabled, the Maximum Bid feature set will allow bidders to set a maximum amount they are willing to bid. Then let the Auctria platform bid for them until another bidder places a higher bid than their maximum amount. This feature set is only available with Online type items.

The essential idea behind Maximum Bidding is for the bidder to place a maximum bid but still be able to win the item at the lowest possible amount up to the maximum they are willing to pay.
