Setting Custom Bid Increments: A Step-by-Step Guide

For greater control over your auction items’ bidding process, you have the ability to customize bid increments. By default, our platform uses a predetermined increment structure. However, you can easily override this with your own values. Here’s how:

1. Navigate to Your Item:

  • Access the ‘Add’ or ‘Edit Item’ option, depending on whether you’re listing a new item or modifying an existing one.

2. Locate Bid Increments:

  • Scroll through the item details until you find the section labeled “Bid Increments.”

3. Activate Custom Increments:

  • Click on the option marked “Custom.”
  • Now, input the dollar amount you desire for the ‘Next Minimum Bid’ increment.

Note: If you choose not to set a custom increment, our system will automatically default to the established bid increment structure. You can view these defaults by clicking on the pop-up link provided within the Bid Increments section.

By following these steps, you can tailor the bidding process to match the unique value and demand of each item, ensuring a smooth and strategic auction experience for all participants.

1) From Add or Edit Item, scroll down until you see “Bid Increments.”
