Wicked Tips from WickedBidder
Here is a list of suggestions from WickedBidder . They are not guaranteed strategies.
- Bid early, especially if it is a Reserve Auction.
- Before you get started, be sure to check out how WickedBidder works by reading though this entire page.
- Be patient and observe the site before you bid.
- Don't bid on too many items and then when something you really want comes up you don't have enough bids.. Focus on one or two auctions at a time to maximize your chances of winning.
- Watch for our slower times and take advantage of them.
- Make sure you have enough bids in your account to win the item you want.
- Always check the number of remaining bids in your account and purchase more if needed. You don't want to run out of bids.
- If you are new to Penny Auctions or are just concerned about your first experience on Wickedbidder, we suggest you choice a BuyItNow auction item. This way you are bidding risk free and can apply your placed bids towards the final purchase if you do not win!
