Bidding Improvements Now Available on BigIron

Share:

Based upon our customer suggestions and feedback, BigIron will be releasing website and mobile app updates to improve the bidding process.


IMPROVEMENTS OVERVIEW:


1. By default, all bids placed will be designated as Max Bids.

The website will bid for you, keeping you in the lead up till your Max Bid. You can still place a Hard Bid if you want to, just uncheck the Max Bid checkbox, enter your Hard Bid amount and click the Submit button. As before, you will be asked to confirm your choices. We have improved the confirmation messages for clarity.

2. Only be sent an outbid email if you are the current high bidder and you are outbid.

As before, if you place a bid online and are immediately outbid by another bidders Max bid, you will see the message on the screen. However, you will only be sent an outbid email if you are the current high bidder and you are outbid. So, if an opponent bidder’s Max Bid knocks your bid out instantly, you will not get an email. The only notification you receive will be directly on the website, on the item. The outbid message will be displayed for 15-30 seconds.
