How to Bid in the Charity Auction
Our charity auction takes place online and is a timed auction. The auction runs for a set period of time, from 24 April to 13 May, and shows the current highest bid, if a bid has been made, or the estimated bid. You then select your maximum bid. The bidder with the highest bid when the countdown timer ends wins the auction.
Any bids placed in the last minute extend the bidding on all the lots in the auction by two minutes. This gives underbidders the chance to place a counter bid on any lot in the auction. You can watch a video demo of a timed auction with The Auction Collective.
