How are bid increments determined?

(last updated on 5/31/2005)

Bid Increments are determined by the Current Bid on the item, not the maximum bid entered. As the Current Bid increases the bid increment increases as shown in the following table. The Bid Increment will be displayed as $0.00 in the item listing until the first bid has been placed.

Current Bid Bid Increment
$0.00 - $9.99 $.25
$10.00 - $49.99 $1.00
$50.00 - $99.99 $2.00
$100.00 - $999.99 $5.00
$1000.00 and up $25.00
