When I bid, the system tells me I am outbid. Why does that happen?

(last updated on 2/19/2008)

Our AutoBid system will enter bids automatically on behalf of other bidders. If another user had placed a maximum bid higher than the one you just placed, autobid will raise their bid accordingly and you will receive and outbid notice. See the AutoBid FAQ for a detailed explanation of how the AutoBid feature works.
