What's a max bid?

Your maximum bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.

Your entered maximum bid will not be disclosed to the seller or other auction participants at any point.

Max bidding example:

If the current auction price is $100 dollars and you place a maximum bid of $120 dollars, the system will bid $101 dollars on your behalf.

If no other participant places a bid, you win that auction lot for $101 dollars.

If another auction participant places a bid of $110 dollars, the system will subsequently place a bid of $111 dollars on your behalf. The system will continue to bid in $1.00 dollar increments until your maximum bid of $120 dollars is exceeded.

If another auction participant places a bid for $125 dollars, the auction lot price will display $121 dollars having exceeded your previously submitted maximum bid by $1.00 dollar.

Footnote: The Order of the Star of Romania has a long history, being founded originally as a royal order on May 10, 1877, one of the first acts of the newly independent Romanian principality, to reward outstanding military and civil service to the state. After the Second World War, the new Communist regime instituted its successor in 1948 as the Order of the Star of the Romanian People's Republic, the country’s most senior decoration, as a political award for public servants, diplomats, members of the ruling party and social and cultural personalities for achievements in establishing close relations with Romania’s Communist allies. The name of the Order was changed in 1966 to the Order of the Star of the Romanian Socialist Republic, following the change of name of the Republic soon after the accession to power of Nicolae Ceauşescu. A new version of the Order (as the Order of the Star of Romania) was established in 1990 after the overthrow of the Communist regime.
