I think you'll find it is: :"Extends with late bids"

Hi Paul

 

Extends with late bids means should a bid come in within (I think) 2min before in closes, another 2 min are added, another bid in that time, another 2 min, etc. If it's really something you want, best is to sit and watch it - that's part of the fun(for me anyway):awesome:

If you know you want the item, and you know what you are willing to pay for it, you should enter your maximum auto bid.

If somebody then outbids you it wont matter because your obviously not gonna pay more than what you intended to.:colbert:

 

Peace

I don't like the extends with late bids thing either, it seems peculiar to BoB as ebay does not allow it.

I think the reason I do not mind it at all is that I do always bid the full (maximum) amount I am prepared to pay - seldom do I come back to carry on bidding - although every now and again I do up the ante if it is something particularly special and there is a last minute bidder- Lots of "me me me" in that statement LOL!!
