I am having trouble getting my bids to register on auctions.
Sometimes users will place a bid before the countdown ends, but it won't be recognized that the bid was placed. Usually this is due to Internet lag times or delays between your PC and our servers. This could be caused by the connection being overloaded, a slow internet connection, or the loss of connection.
We apologize that your bid was not registered when you placed it. Here is some advice to help you avoid this problem in the future:
- While bidding don't download or upload large files on the internet at the same time.
- Don't use an internet connection that has many users online at one time.
- Don't wait until the very last second to place your bid. The timer will be extended even if your bid is placed with 3 or 4 seconds remaining on the auction timer.
- Set your Autobidder to ensure your bid is placed.
The links for ibid2SAVE I received in my email are not working.
Try copying the full link and paste it into the address bar of your internet browser instead of clicking on the link directly.
What if a system outage occurs?
If there is an unforeseeable disruption in the system and no bids can be submitted for items, then auctions will be temporarily halted and the remaining times for the auctions, current bidding price, and the current highest bidder will be maintained. Once the disruption has been resolved, the auctions will be continued and ten (10) minutes will be added to the remaining times for the auctions. Temporarily halted auctions will be clearly indicated. More information can be found in the Terms & Conditions.
