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
Note:  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.
Note: You sometimes see bids appear to be in different increments, this is because bidders can bid in any increment, so long as it is over and above the minimum increments above.
