About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

If your maximum bid is below the reserve price you'll bid that amount if you are the highest bidder.

If your maximum bid is above the reserve and you are the highest bidder - we will only auto-bid for you up to the reserve price.

Once the reserve has been met, C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR up until just below your maximum bid when the increment value would have taken you higher than your maximum bid.

Once the reserve has been met C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR up to the next increment closest to your maximum bid if your maximum bid isn't enough for the increment value.


Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
