Today, all Maximum Bids are final on items in Liquid Auctions. Please understand that your Maximum Bid is not necessarily the amount you would pay should you win. Our systems bid in increments on your behalf to keep you in the lead up to your maximum bid. These increments are based on the auction's current price, and the auction winner will pay one bid increment above the second-highest bid amount or their maximum bid, whichever is lower.
For example, if your maximum bid is $500, and the second-highest bidder is $400, you would win the item for $405 (one bid increment higher than $400).
