Once you have found an item you would like to place a bid on you can do so quickly and easily by following these steps:-
(1) Login to your account. If you have not registered it just takes a couple of minutes and it's free.
(2) Visit the auction page. Make sure you really want to buy this item before you place a bid. A bid is a binding contract and bids are active until the auction ends at which time a seller could accept your offer.
(3) Towards the bottom of the auction description page you will see a bidding box, you can use the shortcut link to the bidding box if you wish.
(4) Enter in your bid, note you must bid above the minimum bid required. Coin co automatically bids on your behalf up to your maximum bid.
(5) Click on the place bid button.
(6) You will then be asked to confirm your bid, once you have done so your bid will be entered, if successful you will receive a confirmation message. If your bid fails to outbid the current high bidder or the auction fails to reach its reserve you will be offered the option to place a higher bid. Coin co automatically bids on your behalf up to your maximum bid.
Reserves are the minimum price a seller will sell goods for. If a reserve is not met the seller could accept a lower offer but is under no obligation to do so.
Buy it now prices are set by the seller, if you agree with that price, you can click on the Buy Now button which is displayed on the auction details page. After clicking on the button you will be re-directed to a confirmation page.
We welcome international buyers if the individual sellers are willing to ship overseas. Please check shipping details to see if goods are available to your country before bidding and source heavier common objects locally.

The highest bidder(s) will receive the number of items they have bid on, and the remaining bidders will receive the number of items still available. Buyers are able to bid more than once for the same item.
