Auction Help


Reserve Price: Minimum price that the product must reach in order to be sold.

Buy Now Price: If available, the Buy Now Price allows you to buy an item when you want it, at a known set price.

Minimum Bid Increase: The minimum amount required to add to the current bid price.

Starting Bid: The starting price may be set for the auction. This may be less or the same as the reserve price.

Auction Ends: The date and time the Auction ends.

Current Highest Bid: The current highest bid on the product. If you are logged in, and you are the current highest bidder, it will say: You are the current highest bidder!

How to bid: Once you find an item you're interested in, it's easy to place a bid:
  1. Carefully review the product listing and then click the Login to Place Bid button on the product page.
  2. Enter the amount you wish to bid on the item. If a minimum bid increase is active, you must meet the minimum increase amount for the bid. e.g, if it says the minimum increase is 100JPY, you must bid 100JPY or more.
  3. Click the Submit button to place your bid.

Important: Please note, this is a traditional auction system where the full amount of the bid you submit will be reflected immediately as the current highest bid. Each bid you make is a binding contract to buy the item if you win. If you are the winning bidder on an item, you are obligated to purchase that item.

If you make a mistake: Please notify us immediately to cancel your bid.

You'll get an email if you have been outbid when another buyer has placed a higher bid than yours, and you are no longer the current highest bidder. When the auction ends, you'll receive another email indicating whether you've won the product or not, with an explanation of what you can do next.
