How does an online auction work?
Online auctions are similar to local auctions. An item is photographed and has a description explaining it. Once you register and create an account you can bid on any items online. The bidding platform will keep updating with the highest bid until the final bid is made. The highest bidder will be notified on how to send payment and pick up their item.

How do I bid in an online auction?

When is the best time to bid on an online auction item?
If you really want a particular item, put in your maximum bid and let the object find the level. If it goes beyond your bid, you can assume the market value is high and on the next bid you can raise your price expectations. It’s best to understand the demand of the item and place an educated bid.
