Quibids just rolled out a new feature on their site…they’re called “Locked Auctions” and you can read about them on their site here: Quibids Locked Auctions
They have entitled the post with “Winning Just Got Easier”…and boy are they right! More specifically, winning is about to get a whole lot easier for all Bid-Ninja users! We’ll have the features gone over in the rest of this blog post implemented in the near future to make winning on Quibids using Bid-Ninja even easier than it already does.
Anyway, the gist of that Quibids post is that they’re now locking all auctions to prevent other players from “jumping” into the auction after a certain point. The only way you won’t be locked out, is if you meet one of two criteria (and no, just placing a bid at the beginning of the auction will NOT prevent them from locking you out…it’s a far more intricate process than that).
Anyway, we know what the specifics are to prevent being locked out when the auction does “get locked” by Quibids, which means Bid-Ninja will not only be able to keep you notified about how many bids you need to place or when you need to bid to NOT be locked out of an auction, but Bid-Ninja will also be able to show you which other players have already been locked out and no longer can place bids on the auction! What’s even better, we’ll be updating the AutoBidder to include an additional autobidding option…an option that if checked, will ensure that it places just the minimum amount of bids necessary to prevent you from being locked out of any auction!
This is HUGE…not only are you not going to have to worry about “jumpers” anymore, but you’ll know exactly which players that had placed bids at some point in the auction are no longer are allowed to place bids any more.
In other words…and read this carefully…once the auction locks, if you’re using Bid-Ninja, you’ll be able to actually SEE the EXACT number of bidders left that are eligible to place bids on the auction…what’s more, you’ll be able to see how many bids each of those eligible players have already placed and how many they have left before they’ll have “purchased” the item and can no longer place bids.
The Quibids world (for Bid-Ninjas anyway) has just gotten a whole lot better. Granted, this means you’ll need to change up your strategies a bit to make sure you’re not locked out, but after that, as a Bid-Ninja, the world is your oyster!
We hope you’re as excited about these changes as we are!
Keep your eyes open for our newly implemented features coming in the very near future.
