To create a listing

HOW DO I CREATE A LISTING?

You create a listing by stating the title of what you are selling, your accepted minimum price (the lowest price you’re willing to sell your item for), ending time and one or more pictures of your item. Then you register your credit card for payment (note that your credit card won’t be charged until you get a bid on your listing). The system will now create a link that you copy and paste in your auction which you publish in your desired groups and platforms. When the bidding is over and the time is out you’ll get an email with information about the wining bidder. All that is left is to make contact and complete the deal.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO CREATE A LISTING?

To create a listing in Bidup is completely free. If you get a bid on your listing we will charge just 1 USD/EUR regardless of what your starting price or the winning bid is. There are no hidden costs or percentage added after a closed bidding.

DO I NEED TO PAY EVEN THOUGH I DIDN’T GET ANY BIDS?

No, you only pay when you receive the first bid.

TO PLACE A BID

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE IN A AUCTION IN BIDUP?

To participate in an auction you simply click the link in the sellers selling post to get to Bidup’s platform, buda.bidup.se. You log in to your account via Facebook to view the current bid, when the listing ends as well as placing your bid.

HOW DO I PLACE A BID?

Enter your bid and click the “Place bid” button. You will receive an email that confirms that you’re participating in the auction. You can also see your bid under the “Bid History” button.

IS BID BINDING?

When you bid on an item you´re committed to buy it if you win the bidding. Bid is considered as a binding contract.

DOES IT COST ANYTHING TO PARTICIPATE IN AN AUCTION?

No, you don’t pay anything to participate in a Bidup auction. We do not charge any extra costs or hidden fees.

HOW DOES AUTOMATIC BIDDING WORK?

Enter the highest bid you are willing to place. If your maximum bid is higher than the next bid in the bidding ladder, our automated system will monitor the auction for you and place the lowest bid over the current bid until it reaches the maximum allowed bid that you entered. As long as you don’t get outbid, no new bids will be placed for you. If your maximum allowed bid were to get outbid, you will immediately be contacted via email. You can then enter a new bid or place a new automatic bid.
