    Your minimum bid must be 10000 credits

    If you place a bid below the 10000 minimum you will see the pop up window ( shown below)


    Once you have your bid and it is 10000 credits or higher you will receive a pop up window that will tell you your bid has been submitted (as shown below)


    This does not mean that you are the highest bidder, it just means that you have submitted a bid.


    Green- Current Highest bidders
    Pink - Your submitted bids

    To become the highest bidder you must submit a bid that is higher than the current bidder holder. At that point your User name will appear in the auction listing as the highest Bidder.

    Please note that when you make 2, 3, 4 bids on the same item the credits will be added to the previous bid.

    The bids do not add together or stack.

    First Example:

    1st bid - 10,000 Will process
    2nd bid - 10,000 (will not process as you have that amount currently as a bid)
    2nd bid- 20,000 will process

    Total Bid is the highest amount bid of 20,000. This will then only deducting an additional 10,000 from your credits.

    Second Example: ( when using odd numbers to bid)

    1st bid - 10,351- Will process
    2nd bid - 10,000- (will not process as you have that amount currently as a bid)
    2nd bid- 20,000 - (will not process as it is not 10,001 above the original bid)
    2nd bid- 20,352 - Will process

    Total Bid is the highest amount bid of 20,352. This will then only deducting an additional 10,001 from your credits.
