Internet bidders who desire to make certain their bids are acknowledged should use the internet bidding feature and leave their maximum bid. When you bid your max, the current bid price does not automatically go to your max bid. Someone else has to bid to increase the current price and the computer will automatically bid up to your max in the increments specified.
Auction Auto Extend:
This feature extends the bidding for the one lot in the auction. The auction is extended for the amount of time supplied in the Auto Extend field which is 5 minutes.
