To ensure you get the best deal, the SteinbachOnline Auction has set up the following bidding process. Enter your bid as the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item. The system will then set your active bid to the minimum amount required to be the highest bidder. If someone else bids on the item, the system will automatically increase your active bid as required, up to your maximum bid amount. If somebody exceeds your maximum bid, you will receive an email giving you the option to increase your maximum bid.
