How to Bid and Buy

Bidding on lots in our auctions couldn't be easier...once you've registered there are 2 ways you can place your bids. Don't forget, all the items we sell are covered by our legendary 100% satisfaction guarantee!

Quick-Fire Bidding

Quick-Fire Bidding is a fast and convenient way to bid. You will notice that each lot has a field in which you can enter your bid. To use this feature, simply enter your bid amount (and select a bid boost if you wish) and click the 'Place Bid' button. You will be asked to confirm your bid and to select a payment method (should you wish, you can also enter additional notes or commentary at this point - delivery instructions, for example). Once you have confirmed your bid you will get a confirmation message and your 'Active Bids' count at the top of the page will be updated.

Wishlist Bidding

If you have many items you want to bid on you may find it easier to add them to your Wishlist and bid on them all at once - this way you can select a payment method that applies to all the bids you are making. To bid on items from your Wishlist simply add the items to your Wishlist by clicking the 'Add to Wishlist/Bid Later' button - the number of items you've got on your Wishlist will always be displayed at the top of the screen. To go to your Wishlist, simply click the 'Wishlist' link that appears at the top of the page near the shopping cart icon.

What is my Wishlist?

Your Wishlist is simply a tool for you to gather all the items that interest you in one place. You are under no obligation to bid or buy items on your Wishlist. From your Wishlist page, you can remove items or bid on items - see Wishlist Bidding (above) or our Help pages for information on Wishlists more generally.
