About the Bid Extension Feature
The Bid Extension feature allows bidding to continue in 5-minute increments past the scheduled closing time on high-interest items.
This feature extends the auction closing time on an item by 5 minutes each time a new bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of an auction. This assures that all bidders will have the opportunity to counter any last-second bids on an item.
The item’s closing time will continue to extend in 5-minute increments as long as there is continued bidding. The item will automatically close when there is a 5 minute extension period with no new bids.
How to Enable it
To activate the Bid Extension feature, do the following:
- Go to Event> Set Up> Auction Features
- Scroll down to the Advanced Features section and check off the box next to Bid Extension.
- Scroll down and hit Save
