Question: What does Unreserved Auction mean?

Answer: All of our auction items are Unreserved, meaning there is no set price that needs to be reached in order for you to win the item. The winning bid is the highest bid received when the auction closes.

Question: What are bid increments?

Answer: Each item starts with an opening bid of $1 and each subsequent bid increases the price by $1 increments, up to $24.99. At $25 the bid increments increase by $5 to $99.99, from $100 to $249.99 the bid increments increase by $10 and so on. An Increments Table is listed on each auction.
