When you have found what you want to bid on, click the left hand price box highlighted below. This will take you to the page of that item to confirm your bid.

3. Confirming your bid.

Below is what you'll see once completing step 2. There are multiple options on this page:

i. Maximum Bid: This is the most you are willing to pay for that item - no other bidders can see this. We will keep bidding the minimum amount possible until you are either the highest bidder, or the bid reaches your maximum amount. We'll e-mail you when we have placed a bid for you, or when the bidding has exceeded your maximum amount.

ii. Confirmation: Once you are happy with your bid ammount, continue to the Summary Page by either clicking the black 'Bid Now' circle, or the 'Confirm' button shown in your orange basket in the top right corner of the page.

iii. Buy it now: Alternatively, you can Buy it Now for the higher price shown in the circle. You will automatically win this item for that price, and be taken to the Summary Page where you can confirm the purchase.

If you change your mind and do not wish to bid on any product(s), click the 'x' on the right hand side of that line to remove it from the summary. Once you are happy, click confirm. You will then be taken to your Dashboard - for more help on this, see the My Dashboard help page.
