Being the first to offer Autobids in the world of online bidding, Easy Live Auction knows the that the biggest frustration bidders face when placing Autobids is being 'wrong-footed'.
As all of our Autobids are anonymous, the auctioneer does not see your top bid.
This means that in LIVE auctions, 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.
