  • Starting Bid
    This is the value where you want the bidding for the item to start.
    Leaving this blank will default to $1.00.
  • Bid Increment
    This value is the (minimum) amount you want your bids to increase with each successful bid after the initial bid for the item has been made. Leaving this blank will default to $1.00.
  • Buy It Now Price
    This value is the amount you would consider as the maximum bid amount. Once this value is reached, bidding for the item will be closed immediately.
  • Reserve Price
    This is the minimum bid required for the item to be won at auction.

See Pricing Examples for some ideas on what values to consider for the above. During "Live" auctions these will often be used more as "guidelines" for the auctioneer versus hard and fast rules.

# Online Bidding

    Timed mode would also allow for Anti Sniping Rules to be applied.
