New for 2018 - Proxy Bidding

What is Proxy Bidding?

Proxy bidding, sometimes called absentee or automatic bidding, is a method for bidding in an in-person or online auction. The way it works is the person who wants to bid on an item decides a maximum amount that they are willing to pay for it in advance, and tells this amount to the auction holder. As other bids are made, the auction holder automatically increases the person's bid by pre-specified increments until their maximum amount is reached. If the bidder is monitoring the auction, at this point they can give up or choose to increase their bid. The reason people do this is so that they don't have to continually monitor an auction to win an item, and so they can more easily bid on several items at once.
