Can I place my highest bid (Max Bid) or do I have to bid manually?
Consider a Max Bid like a “reservation”. All simple bid auctions start at $1.00 with $1.00 increments. Any bid you place will be your “max” bid for an item. If you set a higher amount more than the current bid, the site will automatically increase your bid for you in $1.00 increments as other bidders bid against you. This will continue until your max reserve bid has been met. Entering a max bid reserves the highest bid that you input. For example, if you set a max bid of $10 and someone increases the bids to $10, your max bid “reserves” that $10 bid first so if no further bids are made you would win the item.
