Auction Processes

Auction bid duration

The deadline for the next bid will be clearly visible within the auction giving a 24 hour window. This takes account of all those time differences across the world. 
Bids will be in increments of £25 for each bid below £1000, £50 per bid above £1000 and £100 per bid above £2000.

Auction completion

If no higher bid is received within a 24 hour period, this will be the winning bid!
If a higher bid is received, then another 24 hour countdown begins. 

The item is sold to the collector with the highest bid.
QDT will advise at what price the bidding should start.
