How to win on MadBid.com website!!

  • There are many good ways to win on mad bid auctions mainly you would want to let the counter run down and wait till it gets below 5 seconds without anyone bidding then that is possible that people have left the site and no longer bidding on that item if you bid you may grab it.
  • Also bidding on vouchers and house hold equipment is a-lot easier to win as most people aim for the cars or televisions and that high priced items so if you get like two £50 vouchers for £1 each that is a big saving, Take into account that all auctions when you click to view the item auctioned it will display the processing and shipping fee if shipping is required So total may be the end price + around £5 for processing and shipping if required.
  • The bonus being all bids bought if you don't win any single auction the used bids are given back to you, So make sure you only bid on things worth winning not something small you want to test on.
  • It's advise you buy only small bid packages and win bid packages on auctions there on always and always cheaper than buying the bids direct from the website, Save on average is about 79% of RRP!!

I am upset that I was told I had the winning bid right up to the last minute only to be told I lost the bid. I was watching up to the last minute and was to notified I needed to up my bid. This has ha

You didn't mention what auction site you are using, but I will answer as if you are using Ebay. It sounds like you are a victim of a sneaky but completely legal bidding technique called "sniping." Bidders often wait until the last 30 seconds or less of an auction is left before entering a bid, hoping to steal the win (which they often do).

As mentioned, this is legal and used on almost all auction sites. If you only use Ebay you have two main options. First, you can enter a larger final bid amount when you make your first and only bid. For example, let's say you are willing to pay up to $100 for an item but hope to get it for $70. You enter $100 and hope for the best. The advantage of doing this is you avoid overpaying for an item and don't have to watch the auction. The key disadvantage is other bidders make smaller bids and gradually push the total price up to your highest amount. The second option on Ebay is to wait until the very last part of an auction before entering your bid amount. This might get you the win, but you have to wait and watch the auction and sometimes scream when you still don't win, evan after getting up in the middle of the night!

You can also use automatic tools to enter a snipe bid. This is likely what other users who are winning the auctions are using. Some examples are ezsnipper.com, bidsnapper.com, esnipe.com, auctionsniper.com, and auctionstealer.com. There are many more. If you choose one of these other tools, make sure you read all the fine print to clearly understand (a) how much each bid will cost and any other costs, (b) the software will work with your auction site, and (c) what personal information is stored and how it is used (don't use it if you are not comfortable with the privacy details). I would recommend trying one that has a free trial and then bid on a smaller item as a test.

Finally, change how you look at auctions. They can be a lot of fun, as long as you set realistic expectations and have clear, personal bidding rules you follow...

how to make a secret maximum bid

When you bid on an item you can list your maximum bid. Ebay will increment your bid as someone out bids you, untill your max is hit. At the point your max is hit, ebay will email you that you have been out bid.

i bid for an item on ebay it confirmed i was the high bidder till bidding ended but i didnt win the item i was bidding for why

somebody sniped your bid at the last second most likely unless Ebay took it off the last second. Check your "not won" box on the left of your summary column to check on all bids placed by clicking on the total bids showing that were made

I purchased an item on ebay and i decided i did not want it any more and i made a bid how can i delete that off my list?

If you have made the winning or at present the highest bid then you have legally commited yourself to purchase the item. If however you are neither then you will have to wait until the auction is over and then delete it from your "didn't win" list
hope this helps
