Sometimes you want to up your max bid and then you put in asecond bid.
I don't know if they were proxy, both are by same bidder, two days in a row with no other action in between. I made a bid after and nothing has been bid since. If they had an automatic bid with a max is higher. Than mine actual, would an automatic bid have been made then?Are these actual bids or proxy bids?
Proxy bidding is when the bidder puts in a high bid which only shows as a lower bid at the start price (or next increment if there are other bids). Each time a new bid is placed, the other bidder's proxy takes precedence.
Thanks for this explanation it really help!!It sounds like proxy bidding, where she placed a higher bid than the minimum. If opening bid amount was $100, her first bid will post as $100 and remains there until another bidder bids. If you subsequently placed a $102 bid, you'd get an "outbid" notice and the next bid increment will be $103. Then if you try to bid $103, this will continue until you overbid her max.
To see if this is what's happening, click on the "bids" and click "Show automatic bids."
The following screeenshots are showing the bidding history for the same listing. As shown in the screenshots below, the first picture shows actual bids. The second picture shows "automatic bids." The grayed out bids are proxy bids, placed automatically when a prior bidder's higher proxy bid outbids a new bid.
