Cheeky Auctions has the right to contact the winner after the end of an auction and to publish information about the winner however you can opt out of this in your preferences.
Once users have created and logged in to their account they will be able to bid on our live auctions.
We have an auto bid feature enabled on some auctions. Simply enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item and we'll then bid in increments on your behalf to keep you in the lead. We will never go over your limit, and will not bid if you are leading the auction. Only bid what you are willing to pay as you will be liable for the auction if you win.
The highest bid, defined as the person to bid a certain amount in a given auction, and that amount being the highest amount bid in that auction.
Winners are announced automatically on the ‘Winners’ section and will be informed immediately. We allow 5 days for the winner to pay for winning auctions. Failure to pay within 5 days means the auction lot is cancelled and future bidding may be suspended.
The auction will end at a specified time or up to a minute after the final bid. If a bid if placed when there is less than up to a minute left of the auction, the auction will automatically be extended up to one minute remaining. This is intended to give other bidders the chance to counter bid.
The same auction can be extended more than once, if it receives a last few seconds bid each time.
When you place a bid you will see a message regarding the status of your bid. The message will confirm if your bid is the highest bid or not the highest bid. The status of your bid may be affected by the bids of other users. It is your responsibility to check the status of your bid. Notwithstanding, in the event that your bid was the highest bid and it subsequently loses its status as the highest bid, you will be notified by email.
Upon expiry of the auction, the winner, being the person with the highest bid at expiry, is then verified.
In the rare event of a tie-break and there is no highest bid the first person to bid that amount is the winner.
