Bid Now sales give you the opportunity to place bids in online auctions, at any time of day directly within vehicle detail page. At the end of the auction, a xBid session can start as a new opportunity to bid on the vehicle. Bid Now sales are indicated by the blue arrow icon and xBid session by the red timer icon.
Connect and access to online vehicle list.
From the vehicle detail page, place a bid or an automatic bid.
At the end of the sale, access to the vehicle list in order to participate at the xBid session.
From the vehicle detail page, at start of the sale you are able to place a bid for a specific value, then choose one of 2 ways:
Automatic bid is a feature where the computer bids in your absence. During the bid now sale you enter the maximum price you are willing to pay and the computer does the rest for you. Your automatic bid will be considerate during xBid session.
Validate your amount clicking on "Bid exact amount" button. If another bidder place a higher bid, you will be notified by email and you will be able to overbid.
You can decide your maximum bid before or during the auction. Thanks to our automatic bidding option, our system will bid incrementally on your behalf but never exceeds your maximum amount.
Most of the online auctions end with a so-called xBid session. It starts few minutes after the end of the first part of the sale. During this phase all cars appear on screen one more time. This system allows you to place an additional bid and to react on an offer placed within the final moments. After each new bid the timer sets at 10 to 30 seconds again (depending on the sale setting) to allow another participant to place a higher bid. After each new bid the timer sets at 20 seconds again to allow another participant to place a higher bid.
Once you are approved you can start benefiting right away.
