How do the bid increments work?

To place your bid, you must submit a bid of at least the minimum amount. The minimum bid is calculated by increasing the current bid amount by the increments listed in the table below. 

  • Each bid will go up $1 until the item is up to and including $35
  • $5 from $35.01 up to and including $100
  • $10 from $100.01 to $1,000.00
  • $50 from $1,000.01 to $5,000.00
  • $100 from $5,000.01  to $10,000.00

$250 on any amount above $10,000.01

Increments are only used to calculate the minimum bid amount. If you submit a Max Bid on an item that already has a Max Bid by another user, then the user with the highest Max Bid wins.
