Standard Bid

What is a standard bid – this is when you place one bid only on an item which is equivalent to or higher than the opening/current bid.

How does a standard bid work – the bid must be higher than the existing bid or for the very first bid, at least equal to the opening bid. Subsequent bids are raised by a minimum that is based on the current (highest) bid for that lot. Auctionista uses a graduated scale for standard bids - see below.
