Absolutely not. That's the great thing about leaving bids with us.
Whether you leave an Autobid in a LIVE auction, or a maximum bid in a TIMED auction, we never let anybody know what your top bid is.
So you can be rest-assured that we are giving you the best chance at winning a lot for the lowest price possible.
Autobids in LIVE Auctions - use our +1 feature!
As the auctioneer does not see your top bid, you may well be holding the bid at one increment below your top bid. In this event, you're winning the item at a lower price and cannot bid against yourself. This means that somebody else may have the chance steal your lot for your maximum bid.
In auction jargon, this is called being 'wrong-footed'.
To avoid disappointment, we highly recommend using our +1 feature when leaving an Autobid.
This is our way of helping you to combat being wrong-footed - it means that the system will bid one extra increment for you should you find yourself in this scenario.
You can find an example of being wrong-footed in our blog article here.
