Bid Budgets - bidders can use "bid budgets" to maximize their bids: specify a global amount to limit bids to and then submit a list of prioritized bids; whatever lots are won are awarded to the bidders according to their preference within their budget. Example: a person with a budget of $100 can bid on any number of lots up to $100 each and be awarded any of them as long as they are within his budget. Contact us.

Where there are 2 or more bids/bidders on a lot, if the winner has used a bid budget and forfeits his win in favor of a different lot, this lot will be awarded to the runner-up at his bid amount *prior* to the winner placing his bid (eg. awarded at his bid level net of any increases resulting from competition with the winner).

Where there is only 1 bid/bidder on a lot there is still a chance he's bidding with a 'bid budget': those interested in bidding at or below the starting price may submit their bids by email and we will keep them on file; in the event that a sole bidder is the winner of the lot but forfeits it for another lot, we will award the present lot to those bidders who submitted their alternative bids by email.
