First time bidders take note!!
With many bidders sharing their dissapointment at "just missing out" on the sale here's 2 golden tips for you to consider:
1/ What's the absolute maximum your prepared to pay for the item/s? Start your opening bid with this price to increase your chances of winning and put off other bidders.
2/ WAIT until the last 60 seconds to place your bid, you might get lucky and pip another bidder at the post, or you'll be kicking yourself if your've waited all this time to make your "one - off" bid, only to be outbid straight away!
If you decide for example to bid $100 on a $50 item and it sells for say $60. Then you ONLY pay the $60 and not the full $100 that your've originally bid!
Consider these options with care, good luck and happy bidding!
