Once you have agreed to the terms and conditions and clicked ‘Confirm’ on a bid, it cannot be retracted.
Allowing bids to be cancelled would undermine the fairness of the process for all participants, so we have ensured that there are several steps that must be taken before a bid is officially placed, in order to prevent accidental bidding.
If you have made this error 24 hours or more before the auction’s closing time, there is a good chance you will be outbid, since bidding becomes competitive on the last day. However, we cannot guarantee this outcome, and if you do win the lot you will be held responsible for paying for it and picking it up.
Please note that if you have accidentally placed a MaxBid, you can lower it to the current bid level by simply entering the new number in the bid box. See this FAQ for more details.
