Using the search engine

When you find an item that you are interested in, click on the thumbnail/link to see detailed information on the item. In the detailed information you can find out more about the technical condition of the item, see additional photos and read the description provided by the seller. Note that most descriptions are entered in local language, however, a technical condition report is automatically generated in english for many items. Click on the button "Technical condition" to see this information. On this product information page you will also see the reserve price, time remaining for the auction, bid increment and the highest bid. If you wish to make a bid for an item, click on the "Place bid" button. You will receive automatic information on your e-mail about the auctions you participate in.
If you are outbid you will be notified by e-mail. You may then make another bid if you wish to continue to participate in the auction.
Click on "Bid overview" when logged in to your account. There you will find an overview of which auctions you are the bid leader, where you have been overbid, auctions you have won, and auctions you have participated in.
You have won
If you have the highest bid at the end of the auction, then you are the winner of the auction. You will receive an e-mail confirming this. An invoice will be sent to you by our invoicing partner, Lindorff. Contact information to the seller will be e-mailed to you as soon as we have confirmed your payment in full. Please do not contact the seller prior to paying the invoice.
During the auction
During and after the auction you will be informed by e-mail if you are outbid and if you are the winner of the auction. If you are immediately outbid after making a bid, then someone participating in the auction is using the function "Autobid". See further information about "Autobid" below. Note: Every bid you make is binding and can not be retracted. When looking at the detailed view of an auction you will see a list of the bids made during the auction and the current highest bid. The current bid leader will win the auction if no higher bids are made. When logged in, you will see your own bids highlighted in yellow. Please make sure to update the auction to always see the current highest bid.
All auctions have a reserve price. All auctions have a start time and an end time. Bids can only be made between the start and end time. All bids are ranged after the size of the bid amount. If two bids are equal in size, then the earliest bid made is ranged highest. All auctions have a defined bid increment. The amount of your bid must always be at least equal to the current leading bid, plus the bid increment.
Using the "Autobid" function you can simplify the bidding process. Enter the highest bid you are willing to offer for an item in the "Autobid" text box. The auction system will now make an automatic bid for you whenever you are outbid. These automatic bids are made with the minimum bid increment until it reaches your maximum bid amount. You will be notified by e-mail whenever you are outbid during the auction. An autobid is entered at the same time as a regular bid and it works as an agent that bids for you. The agents follow the same set of rules as "regular" bids.
Autobids are marked with a * (star sign).
If you want to change your autobid in an auction where you have the highest bid, your new maximum bid must be at least one bid increment higher than your current bid.
NOTICE! If you choose to activate Autobid for an object where the reserve price is not met, the reserve price will act as a counter bid. See below:
- Autobid under reserve price: Current bid will be your maximum bid.
- Autobid over reserve price: Current bid will be same as the reserve price.
