Why does BoB not have any rules WRT this?

Other auction sites does not allow this within last 30min to give current bidders a fair chance.

Alternatively if new bidder comes into play, the auction is extended by 30min, and current bidders is notified.

The seller does have the option of allowing the bidding time to be extended when making the listing, so that if there are bids close to the closing time and the item is "hot" it will remain open for a few minutes longer or until no more bids come in. But that is only if the seller selects that option.

Or prehaps you are talking about something else?

In my opinion it should be compulsory and not a option for sellers that when a new buyers bid's is done in last 15/30 minutes the auction should be extended with say 30min as other auction houses do.

Makes me wonder who really is the buyer doing this bid on the last minute.....

Other auction sites gives 10 minutes where there is big value items are involved.

Bidorbuy gives 5 minutes. but option has to be selected.

In my opinion I think any above 10 minutes is going to waste a lot of time.

I do not think it is too much, as outbid messages only get received from BoB 11minutes after the auction have closed...

possibly delays with mail servers.

When I am bidding on auctions I do not rely on emails, Just a page refresh is best.
