DealDash Bidding Styles Examined

What bidding style are you using these days? There are so many different ways to bid, try them all, see what you like.

The first way that we will look at is what I like to call “educated bidding.” Educated bidding is the style of bidding that can win you quite a few auctions. In this style of bidding you do all of your research beforehand. You pick an auction, you do your research, and then you use your bids sparingly until you have conquered the auction.

Another way to bid is “scattered bidding”. In this style of bidding you bid on anything and everything that catches your eye. A few bids here, a few bids there, maybe you will get lucky with this style.

The final way we will look at is the best way, in my opinion. Let’s check out the BidBuddy way!

  1. Do the math to figure out how many bids that you need to put in your BidBuddy to get to the BIN (Buy It Now) price.
  2. Buy enough bids to reach the BIN price of the auction you are thinking of winning.
  3. Place the bids that you would like to bid on in the auction in your BidBuddy.
  4. Hit the “Book a BidBuddy button.
  5. Wait for the auction to end.
  6. Claim your win!


The BidBuddy gives you an edge over anyone who bids without BidBuddy. In the examples of the other bidding styles above, it’s very unlikely that you would win if you are up against anyone using a BidBuddy. BidBuddy is really the only way that you are going to be able to bid on more than one auction at once and be able to win.

The best part about the BidBuddy is that you don’t even have to choose between bidding styles – you can do either the educated bidding OR the scattered bidding and still use your BidBuddy, because there is no minimum or maximum amount of bids that must be used with your BidBuddy. If you wanted to place 1,000 bids with the BidBuddy you could do it, as long as you have the bids available to use in your account. On the other hand, if you wanted to place 5 bids on every single open auction, you could do that as well. BidBuddy is versatile!

I hope this helped some of you think about different ways to bid, and get the most out of your BidBuddy. If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
