How do I set a limit on my automatic bid?

You’re in full control of your automatic bid limit. You can decide the exact limit, and it’s quick and easy to set. It’s important to remember we’ll always stop at the limit you’ve set.

On the page of the item you want to bid on, you’ll see a button that says ‘Automatic bid’. To the left of this button is an empty field, where you can enter the maximum amount for your auto bid.

You can enter your limit into this field and click the ‘Automatic bid’ button to create an auto bid with your chosen maximum amount.

From here, we’ll place the next minimum bid for you. If someone outbids you and you haven’t reached your maximum, we’ll bid again on your behalf. We always bid the smallest amount necessary to put you back on top.
