What is timed bidding?

Timed auctions take place without an auctioneer calling the sale. You can bid at any time during the defined time period by entering a maximum bidwhich is the highest amount you're willing to pay for the lot. will automatically bid on your behalf only as much as necessary to ensure that you meet the reserve price or that you remain in the lead; up to your maximum bid. will notify you if another bidder places a bid that is higher than your maximum bid. Your maximum bid is kept confidential until it is exceeded by another bidder.
