For those bidders who are actively logged in and watching the auction unfold in real-time:

  • Outbid Alerts: If another bidder places a higher bid on an item you’re vying for, an on-screen pop-up will alert you immediately. This allows for quick decisions and immediate actions.
  • Winning Bid Alerts: Once the auction ends, if you have the winning bid, a congratulatory on-screen pop-up will notify you of your victory. Celebrate and proceed with the next steps right away!

2. Outbid Notifications:

What? Alerts to inform you that another bidder has placed a higher bid on an item you’re interested in.


  • Email Congratulations: An email will be dispatched to congratulate you on your successful bid, providing details of the item won.
  • Text Message: A complementary text message will reinforce the good news.
