If a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional 5 minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped.

This is recommended for high value & popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who was outbid an opportunity to rebid.
