This blog entry is for those of you who don’t know how bidders are able to stay by their computer or why bidders seem to place their bids in turn. They answer to both of those questions is by using the BidBuddy!
The BidBuddy is an automated bidding tool available to bidders, and is by far the most important tool bidders have for winning auctions. Here’s a few different ways that the BidBuddy can help users win auctions:
The BidBuddy Keeps you in the Auctions
You preset the BidBuddy to use a set number of bids in each auction. Once you do that, the BidBuddy will automatically place your bids before the bid clock counts down to 0. By doing this you’re guaranteed to get your bids in before the auction closes, and you’re also free to leave the computer and do other things while participating in the auction. You can go to the bathroom, or you can go to a movie: the BidBuddy makes sure you can stay in it to win it!
Experienced Bidders Know not to Bid Against the Bidbuddy
Once you set a BidBuddy it will place the bids for you, even while you’re away from the computer. If more than one bidder has a BidBuddy active then the BidBuddies will take turns placing the bids. Experienced bidders know this and so they look for these patterns, and if they see it they’ll know that they won’t win until the BidBuddies have run out of bids. One way you can take advantage of this is by placing a small number of bids in your BidBuddy at a time and then watching the auction. This can chase people who are watching the auction away as they won’t be able to tell how many bids your BidBuddy is going to place, but it can also tell you whether other bidders have their BidBuddies set up.
The BidBuddy Makes it Easier to Bid on Multiple Auctions
Many bidders like to multitask and bid on several auctions at the same time. This can be challenging and can be an easy way to sink bids into an auction only to get distracted and then lose out. The BidBuddy provides a sort of safety net by placing the bids for you. It’s always worth putting 5 or 10 bids into your BidBuddy to make sure that you don’t miss out on a big win because you’re looking at more auctions or checking the winners list.
