    Celga bidding question...
    I was curious about something regarding Celga bidding...

    In a situation where two people are using Celga to bid on a piece, how do they actually place a bid? Say the piece has an opening price of 1000 yen, and bidder 1 tells Celga that his maximum bid is 1500 yen. Bidder 2 tells Celga that his max is 1200 yen.

    Does Celga:

    a) place bidder 2's bid at 1200 and then place bidder 1's bid of 1500 with another Celga YJA account name?, or
    b) only place bidder 2's bid of 1500 and immediately tell bidder 1 that they've been outbid?

    Since Celga takes a larger fee for higher priced items, do they run the bids up, or do they take the bidder's best interest to keep the bidding lower and not counterbid against people who use their service?

    higher wil usually take priority ove the ower because they figure the lower will automatically get outbid anyway..At least thats what they've told me in the past..

    I don't know the answer. I just wanted to let you guys know what Shopping Mall Japan does. SMJ uses the same account to raise the bid, but then charges a small fee. An example from the site...
