Each Bidsauce timed auction will work like this:
All Auctions start at $0. Each bid increases the price of the item by 1 cent. The “current bid” and “current Bidder” will be displayed and updated each time a bid is placed.
Find an item you want and click the “BID” button. Once your bid is placed, you are now in the drivers seat and your username will be displayed as the “Top Sauce”.
But remember, bid quickly before the timer reaches zero. If the timer expires before another bid is placed, that item will be sold to the “Top Sauce”.
All Bidsauce’s timed auctions run on a "countdown sequence". The countdown timer is displayed below the auction image. Once the timer counts down and has less than 30 seconds left on the timer if another bid is placed the auction timer add a random number of seconds. Each time a bid is placed, the timer resets and begins counting down towards zero. As the countdown sequence progresses to zero it will display a large 3,2,1 Sold. If no additional bids are placed before the item says sold then you may purchase the item.
Note: Inherent latencies in the communication between your computer and our servers exist for many reasons, including the speed of your internet connection. Bid acceptance delays and/or halo-timer inconsistencies, although rare, can occur. Placing a bid with only 1 second remaining on a timer is not recommended, as it may not have time to register before the auction has ended.
Once you have placed your bid, and your user name is displayed as the "Current Bidder", hang on and watch the countdown. If no one else places a bid before the countdown reaches zero, the auction will say sold. Congratulations!!! The item will now be added to your shopping cart allowing you to checkout. Just follow the link and purchase your item at the winning price.”
You must check out within 7 days of completion of the auction. Any unclaimed item in your cart that has not been paid for within 7 days may be forfeited.
Each user is limited to 4 successful auctions per day.
Turbo auctions are a revolutionary new way to bid on auctions. Turbo auctions can come into the auction block at anytime, when they do come up for auction they are in Bidsauce Red. The auction will display "Ready, Set, Go!", and you have 3 seconds to bid as many times as you can. The timer does not reset, once the time is up, it's over! The person that places the most bids in 3 seconds may purchase at the posted price! It is Freaky Fast, and Freaky Fun!
The base cost for a bid can be up to $1. However, you can buy bids at a discounted price when bought in bid packages of 25, 50, 100, 250, or 500. When you win an auction, you will pay the “item sold” price listed on the auction in addition to what you have spent on bidding for that item.
Just go to the Buy Bids link at the top the page or in the customer bar in the middle of the page. This will take you to our bid purchase page where you can stock up on bids and be ready win big at the auctions. Want more free bids?

If you are not satisfied with any auction item you have purchased, you may return it for a full refund within 14 days, unused and in its original package. A full refund is considered to be the price you paid for the item at the end of the auction at check-out, this does NOT include shipping and handling charges. No refund will be given for the cost of any or all bids that may have been used to place a bid.
This may be due to the fact that someone out bid you right after the moment when your bid was placed. Users across the internet will experience the auction based on the speed of their own internet connection. It is possible that bids placed at very close intervals of time may not have had the actual time to be viewed by the user themselves but will in most cases still have been logged by the system. The system will always show the latest bid placed on any item.
Once logged in, you can see you bid balance next to your user name in the grey customer area in the middle.
Once logged in, you will see a My Account button. Click the link. From here you can edit your personal information, Past transactions, check your bid history or change your password.
