What is the BidBuddy and how to use it?

The BidBuddy allows you to bid on auctions even when you can't be on the computer yourself. It will automatically place bids for you within last seconds of the auction clock. It’s also a safe way to make sure you don’t lose an auction if you get distracted or have problems with your internet connection.

Here’s how you use the BidBuddy:

  1. Click the picture of the auction to get to the auction page.
  2. Add the number of bids you want to place and click Book a BidBuddy.
  3. As long as you have bids left in your BidBuddy, it’ll place a bid for you within the last seconds of the auction if you’re not the highest bidder.
  4. If you win with your BidBuddy, the unused bids will of course be returned into your account. You can also cancel the remaining bids on your BidBuddy at anytime.

Details: If several bidders have bids on their BidBuddies, they’ll take turns placing bids until the bids from all but one BidBuddy run out. When you book your BidBuddy, one bid will be placed immediately (if the auction has started) and the rest will be booked and ready to go!
