My OUTDOORSMAN Auctions
When does an Auction End?
An auction ends once the countdown reaches zero and no more bids are received for 3 seconds after the countdown reaches zero. During this 3 second period, our systems will check all bids and any remaining bids. The reason for this is to compensate for bidders with slower internet connections. At zero, the bid button disappears so that no bids can be cast after zero. If a bid is cast before the timer reached zero, we will wait for 3 seconds for our system to receive the bids. If no bids are received the auction will end stating "SOLD" with the final bidder winning the auction. The time on an auction will increase as bids are received. Each bid resets the timer to a maximum of 30 seconds but usually 20 seconds (depending on the auction), allowing others who would like bid the time to do so. AutoBids will also reset the timer to a maximum of 30 seconds but usually 20 seconds as long as only one AutoBid is set at a time. If more than one AutoBid is set at the same time, the AutoBids bid against each other until one of the AutoBids runs out of bids or reaches the maximum auction price set. When this happens, a maximum of 30 seconds will be adding to the timer for each bid placed with an increase in time of 5 minutes.
