The different bidding types. What are the different bidding types?

There are several ways to make a bid on Delcampe:

  • Submit a bid:
1. For an auction

    Bid: You can submit a bid equal to the starting price or make an higher offer by adding the increment amount, which is mentioned on the description page of the item, to the bid that was last made.

    Automatic bid: You can enter the maximum amount you are willing to spend in the box where you can make a regular offer. If this amount is higher than the current highest bid, your bid will become an automatic bid. This means that the computer system will make 
    bids on your behalf until the maximum price which you have entered is reached. Note that a higher offer will only be made if another member submits another bid.

2. For a fixed price sale

    Click on the "Buy now" button or click on the "Add to cart" button and confirm your cart in order to acquire the item immediately.
 
  • Submit a lower bid:
A member can make a bid which is lower than the starting price of the item. A lower bid can only be made if the item has been present on the website for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 8 week(s) (according to the seller's choice). A link will then appear on the presentation page of the item, in the frame which Delcampe members usually use to place a bid. Note that a lower bid has to be at least 50% of the starting price.
  • Submit a lower group bid:
A lower group bid is a bid that combines several items from the same seller. A lower group bid can be made the same way as a lower bid and can only be made if the item has been present on the website for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 8 week(s) (according to the seller's choice). A link will then appear on the presentation page of the item, in the frame which Delcampe members usually use to place a bid. Note that a group bid has to be at least 50% of the starting price. Don't forget to mention all items numbers.
