PLACE YOUR BUYING ORDER BY THE ONLINE INTERNET AUCTIONS !

The Herbots team is always doing everything to make the Herbots website as users friendly as possible. For that reason we have created the new option “Adjust your maximum buying order” by the online internet auctions.

PURPUSE OF A BUYING ORDER

The purpose of submitting a buying order is that our auction system makes a bid in your name, this till the maximum amount, which you had submitted, is reached. Result is that if we receive a higher bid than your actual bid, but lower or equal to your current buying order, we will then automatically bid higher than your competitor’s bid and the highest bid will be in your name once again.

A buying order is always given priority with regards to a popular bid, even when the amount of the buying order and the popular bid is the same.  When there are equally high buying orders the buyer who placed his buying order first will win the bid. 

HOW TO PLACE A BUYING ORDER?

  1. Make sure that you are logged in.
  2. Click on the auction you want to bid on. You receive an overview of all the auctioned birds. You can bid or place a buying order immediately by clicking on “bid” or you can first go to “view pigeon”. If you choose the last mentioned way you see on your right the following items:
    1. The time that the auction is still running
    2. The highest offer
    3. The minimum offer
    4. Possibility to make a “bid”
    5. Possibility to “Adjust your buying order” – here you can place your maximum buying order.
    6. You can only submit a buying order when you have the highest offer. For example: the highest offer is 500€. You want to submit a buying order. Then you need first to make a bid of 550€ and then you can place your maximum buying order.
    7. If there is a higher bid then your maximum buying order then you can still change your maximum buying order, this as long as the auction is running.
    8. If you are logged in, you can always see the maximum buying order that you submitted to buy this bird. Your buying order is never visible to any other visitor/buyer. The buying order on our auction website is only visible to you only.

FOLLOW YOUR CURRENT BID ON “YOUR PROFILE”.

When you are logged in, you can go to the right top of the page to “your profile”. Click on “your profile” and then you can go to “your running bids”. There you get an overview of all your running bids (also your buying orders).

By “running bids” you can follow only the bids on the birds on which you made already an offer or with other words you can make a selection of the birds in which you are interested and follow the running auction, including your bids,  in a very easy way.
