How to Set a Higher Actual Bid

Sometimes you may want to set a higher bid than what is suggested in the Bid Box and you want that bid to become the new Current Bid instead of using Maximum Bidding.

An example could be where the Current Bid is $2 and you want the new Current Bid to be $50 right away instead of using Maximum Bidding.  You would enter $50 in the Bid Box and click in the box beside the message that starts with “Do you want the amount in the Bid Box to become the Current Bid and to bypass Maximum Bidding.”  These numbers are just examples to illustration purposes.  Your numbers may differ.

Maximum Bidding is where the computer will bid on your behalf only when necessary.  Read the article on How to Use Maximum Bidding for more information on Maximum Bidding.
