My experience

After participating in an auction, I immediately found out that “bidding” is a lot like “gambling”. In order to make the highest bid, it’s important to bid on the exact right moment. That moment is when nobody will overbid you. But when is that moment? That’s right … you never really know.

I’ve seen a lot of people complain about the fact that they don’t get their money back after loosing a bid. But that’s just part of the game. If you choose to join the bid, you should know that you can lose money (consider it a gamble). That’s why you should wisely decide how much you want to spend in total.

My tip for winning an auction

I highly recommend keeping a constant eye on the auction. But I have to warn you, an auction could go on for a very long period of time after the initial countdown. Each extra bid placed after the end time, will reset the counter to 15 seconds. This can go on for more than 24 hours.

So to win an auction, you will need a lot of patience or you just have to be lucky enough to place a bid on the right moment.

Know when to stop

Please don’t unnecessarily waste hundreds of dollars on this website. I myself bought a 30 dollar package, if I don’t win an item after using up the package, I won’t ever buy another package. I recommend making some kind of agreement with yourself in order to keep your bidding under control.

All in all, money is involved. Therefore you should use the platform wisely. The concept is really cool, remember to keep it fun!

Happy bidding! 😉
