Tom's Trust Circus of the Night AuctionRead more ...
The Tom's Trust auction is open for online bidding for a limited time and will run up until 12 noon on the 10th March 2016. On the 11th March, bidding will continue at the Tom’s Trust Circus of the Night dinner on Jesus Green.
Please help us by bidding on the wonderful auction items listed here. The bidding works just like most auction sites, if you put in your maximum bid your bid will increase automatically, in increments, up to your maximum bid when another bidder inputs a bid above your bid but below your maximum bid.
If you are the highest bidder at the close of online bidding on the 10th March, your maximum bids will be carried forward to the auction evening where the guests can try to outbid you!
If they don't, you will be the winner and will be contacted after the event to arrange payment and delivery of your item. So make sure you put your maximum bid at the highest you want to go to give you the best chance of keeping it!
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
