What makes Outbid different?
Outbid connects real sellers and real buyers in a live, online auction platform. Instead of waiting for days for an auction to end only to see a robot snipe your item at the last second, you join Outbid auctions when they start. As soon as your item shows up, you keep bidding until it's sold.
Outbid gives you an immediate, interactive, transparent, and truly fun bidding experience.
Do I have to pay any fees?
Good news! We currently do not charge any fees to bid on an item or post an auction.
Is Outbid available outside of the United States?
Outbid's service is currently only available in the United States. As we continue to grow, this is definitely something that we'd like to consider.

How do I bid?
To bid on an item, you will have to RSVP for an auction if it's scheduled in the future or click on join button if it's an auction that is happening at the moment. Once you enter the auction, you will be directed the lobby where you can interact with the seller and other bidders in the room.
The lobby lasts for 15 minutes or even shorter or longer depending on the seller's choice. Once the lobby is over, the auction will start and you will be able to bid on an item by clicking on the bid button on the left of the screen.
