Before You Bid:
Select the auction in which you would like to participate and click on the link

Placing a Bid:
After you have read, understand, and agree to the Terms & Conditions of
the auction of interest, you can place a bid. There are two places to enter
your bid: (1) 'Your Bid' and (2) 'Your Maximum.'
There are two ways to participate
in bidding at Lampi Online.
- 1. As a bidder, you can
use the "YOUR BID" area. If you use this option to enter a bid,
the amount in the 'Your Bid' box on the item you are bidding on will increase
to the amount of the amount you entered.
- Example: You have found an
item you wish to bid on and the current price is $500. You would like
to place a bid of $1000 on this item. You enter $1000 in the 'Your Bid'
area, enter your bidders number and password at the bottom of the page,
then push the 'Submit Bids' button. You will then have a chance to review
your bid to make sure everything is correct, and then either push 'Submit
Bids' or 'Cancel Bids'. Once you have submitted your bid the current price
will increase from $500 to $1000. At this point you are the high bidder
and done. If someone outbids you, you will receive an email letting you
know you have been outbid. You may bid again, and again and again using
this method, if you desire.
- 2. Another option would
be to use the 'Your Maximum' box. If you enter a bid amount in the 'Your Bid'
and the 'Your Maximum,' the current bid amount of the item you are bidding
on will increase to the 'Your Bid' amount you entered (as detailed above)
but the system will also use an automatic bidding system to bid on your behalf,
if you are outbid by other bidders up to the amount you entered in the 'Your
- Example: You have found an
item you wish to bid on. Its current price is $500. You would like to
place a maximum bid of $1000 on this item. You should enter $550 (or more)
in the 'Your Bid' area and $1000 in the 'Your Maximum' area, enter your
bidder's number and your password at the bottom of the page, then push
the 'Submit Bids' button. You will then have a chance to review your bid
to make sure everything is correct, and then either push 'Submit Bids'
or 'Cancel Bids'. Once you have clicked on 'Submit Bids,' your bid will
be entered and the current price will increase from $500 to $550. At this
point you are the high bidder and done. If, later, someone outbids you,
the system will automatically bid for you and bid the minimum amount needed
to keep you as the high bidder to your specified $1000 maximum. If someone
outbids 'Your Maximum' amount you will receive an email letting you know
you have been outbid. You may bid again, if you desire, following the
exact same procedures as described.
The automatic bidding system keeps
your maximum bid amount confidential and does not allow the system to bid any
higher than your maximum. You can also pay significantly less than your "maximum
bid" because the automatic bidding system only bids enough to keep you
the high bidder on each particular item. By using the "Your Maximum"
option the system automatically bids on your behalf--and in your absence. This
means you don't have to keep coming back to re-bid every time another bid is
placed. It is much more convenient, less time-consuming, and it greatly improves
your chances of winning!
'Review Bids' Button is used for
bidders that have previously entered bids. To use this feature enter your bidder
number and password then click the 'Review Bids' button. The program will then
display all you're "My Maximum" and/or regular bids thus far submitted
under your bidder number.
