We continue to deploy various improvements to our bidding code to help ensure bids are updating as they should. With that said, here are a couple of tips we would suggest to avoid any potential hiccups:
1. Utilize Max Bid: If you know the maximum amount you are willing to pay for an item, I would enter that amount immediately. Only you can see that amount. None of the other buyers nor can anyone at Mazree view anyone else’s Max Bid.
With a Max Bid in place, your bid will always stay ahead of everyone else’s bid up to your maximum and if there is ever a technical issue during the final seconds of bidding – your high bid will always win (up to your Max).
2. Manually Refresh the Page: While the bids and info update automatically without having to manually refresh the page, sometimes a delayed connection can cause the bids to not update automatically. So, we recommend that you manually refresh your page every once and while, particularly when it says “You are the Highest Bidder” – just to ensure that everything is updating as it should to verify that you are still the highest bidder. The amounts shown after manually refreshing your page has the latest bids and information.
