Maximum Bid

The maximum bid is the maximum amount a bidder is willing to pay for a lot. If two maximum bids of the same amount are placed for the same lot, the bid that was placed first will be accepted. If you have been outbid, you will receive an email and/or text informing you that you have been outbid. Your maximum bid can be raised at any time.

Extension Time

The amount of time after the last bid is placed before a lot will close. This time can vary with each sale. (Example: Timed end time is 6:00 PM. The extension time is 5 minutes. A bid is placed at 5:58 PM. The end time is then extended to 6:03 PM. Then, say a bid is placed at 6:00 PM. The end time is now extended to 6:05 PM. This will continue indefinitely until no bids have been placed for 5 minutes).
