How to Place Your Bids During a Live Streamed Auction

 

To bid during a live auction, visit BNO.com and join the auction in progress.

Once the auction starts, you’ll see our live auctioneer and the BNO.com Bid Ticker.

 

The Bid Ticker

Our Bid Ticker scroll bar provides a continuous list of all bids placed on a single item. It highlights the current bid, next bid and reserve status.

It gives both the bidder and the seller all the information you would expect to receive at a brick and mortar auction.

 

Color Code for the Bid Now Button

The Bid Button will communicate to you everything you need to know about where you stand in the auction. Yes, it is a very smart button; we suspect it has an advanced degree. Here’s a simple color guide:

BNO’s Pro Auction Tools & Auto Bidding

Pro Auction Tools/Bid Jumper

BNO has a “Bid Jumper” feature that allows you to skip ahead in bid increments and scare off competing bidders. 

To access this tool, click on the “Pro-Auction Tools” button located on your Bid Ticker. Utilize the bid jumper tool to increase your bid in multiple increments. 

This feature allows the bidder to jump ahead of the game if they wish to dramatically raise their bid without the need for constantly clicking the BID NOW button.

Auto Bid

The Auto Bid feature is available during the Live Streamed Auction. Enter the Maximum Amount you wish to bid to in the Auto Bid option below the Bid Ticker. The BNO.com system will bid against other bidders up to the Maximum Amount.

 

 

IF YOU’RE THE WINNING BIDDER:

 

  • You’ll be prompted to enter your credit card number to secure the deposit & auction fee.

  • We’ll send you email instructions on completing payment to seller & arranging for shipping or pickup.
