for that item. This amount will always be kept secret. Whenever someone else places
a bid, our auction software will automatically enter the lowest possible bid for
you, up to your maximum bid, until you are the winning bidder.

Proxy bidding is allowing the eBid system to automatically bid on your behalf up to your chosen maximum amount. A proxy bid is your Maximum bid - not your current bid.
When you place a bid, enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for that item. This proxy bid amount will be private to everyone until the auction ends. Whenever someone else places a bid, our auction software will automatically enter the lowest possible bid for you, up to your maximum bid, until you are the winning bidder.
At the end of an auction, if you are the highest bidder, you are the winner. As the winner of the auction, you only pay the lowest possible winning bid, not necessarily your maximum bid.
When Proxy Bidding is in effect, it can appear as if one bidder has beat another bidder with the same bid amount. This is normal and occurs when a bidder has a proxy bid in effect and a second bidder comes along and makes their bid at the exact same amount the current proxy bid is at. Since the proxy bid was placed earlier, that is the bid that will succeed. For the second bidder to succeed in placing a bid, they must bid higher than the proxy bid that is in effect.
The Bid Extension feature allows bidding to continue in five minute increments past the scheduled closing time on all auction items.
This feature extends the auction closing time on an item to 5 minutes each time a new bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of an auction. This assures that all bidders will have the opportunity to counter any last-second bids on an item. This makes bidding fair for everyone while also receiving the maximum return on taxpayer dollars. Sniping software will not be successful on the eBid site.
The item’s closing time will continue to extend in 5 minute increments as long as there is continued bidding. The item will automatically close when there is a 5 minute extension period with no new bids.
