How do I register and place a bid?
Our registration process is extremely simple. You can register as a buyer with BlitzBidz by clicking on the "Sign Up" link at the top of the home page. Once you register, you will receive a verification email to confirm your email identity. Once you have verified your email, you can begin bidding. You then just find the item you want to bid on, and once the Auction starts, enter an amount in the Place Bid box. You will be prompted to confirm, and that's it! You have just bid!
Please be aware, that your bid is an agreement to purchase. By bidding, you have committed to purchasing the item at the price you bid if you are the highest bidder. By bidding you have agreed to the Terms and Conditions of the auction. All sales are final. Please use the preview time before the start of an auction to determine your interest in an item and schedule an appointment to view the item.
What happens when I bid near the close of an auction?
Each auction item is typically scheduled to end at 9:00 pm. If a bid is placed on any item in the last 3 minutes of the auction, the duration of an auction will be automatically extended to 3 minutes remaining. This could mean that auction would end much later than 9pm.
I want to place my best and highest bid, but I won't be available when the auctions ends. What can I do?
We allow you to place what is called a proxy bid. A proxy bid, essentially allows the bidder to win the auction at the lowest amount possible without going higher than the bidder's maximum bid. This allows you to put in your max bid, but won't increase your bid until another bidder bids higher. The proxy bid will automatically increase you bid if another bidder outbids you until your maximum bid is reached.
