How do I bid and win on eBay?

Winning an auction on eBay is quite easy as long as you know how to bid. While most people think that it is advantageous to bid as early in the auction as possible, that is not true. In fact, you need to wait till possibly the last seconds of an auction to place your bid, so that your chances of winning increase tremendously.

When you see an item that you want to win, you should decide the ‘maximum bid amount’ that you are willing to pay for that item. Do not wait till the last second to decide this amount, but do so at least a few days prior to the closing of the auction. Set a reminder for yourself and log in to the auction page about 5 minutes before it is scheduled to end.

On the auction page, enter your maximum bid amount and then continue on to the next page where you will have to confirm your bid. Do take a few seconds to review your bid so that you know there aren’t any mistakes in the bid. You should also ensure that no changes have been made to the auction listing by the seller since the last time you saw the listing.

Finally, when only about 5 seconds are left for the auction to close, you should click the confirm button. When placing a bid in this manner, your bid will most likely be the last bid on that auction and no one would have had enough time to outbid you. Your chances of winning the auction will thus be extremely high.
