8. Auction- (The highest bidder wins)
Starting Bid - Base price of the product on auction set by store owner
Bid Up Price - The fixed amount of each consequential bid set by the store owner.
Current Bid Amount - Last confirmed bids.
Bid - bid up price plus the current bid amount.
Proxy bid - A function in the bidding process that allow the system to bid on the behalf of the bidder up to a set amount. The proxy bid amount is not transparent to other bidders and the function allows the bidder to sit back and allow the system to do the work for the bidder.
Say for example, a luxury fish is in auction with a starting bid price of USD13.00, with a bid up price of USD1.0.
If bidder A places a proxy bid of USD20.00 for the fish, our system will start his bid at USD13.00 and bid up to USD20.00 automatically on his behalf.
When bidder B visits the auction, he sees the current bid price as USD13.00. If bidder B decides to place a bid for USD14.00, he will be outbid immediately by bidder A, and the new current bid amount will be USD15.00. In order to outbid bidder A bidder, bidder B would need to bid over USD20.
If bidder B places a bid for USD20.00, which matches bidder A's maximum bid amount, then bidder A would still be the high bidder, but the new minimum bid would be USD21.00.
One minute extension - If the bidder bids at the last minute, the auction time limit will automatically be extended by one minute, allowing other bidders to have enough time to make a counter-offer without waiting for the last few seconds of the time limit.
