The clock is always counting down...Bids placed in the last 25 seconds will reset the clock another 25 seconds. If no one bids after the 25 second reset, the last bidder wins.
Bids Back The Bids Back works as follows: It only applies for those that do not win an auction or chose not to purchase the item. If the auction indicates you will receive up to 90% of your General Bids returned, calculation determination is upon the amount of General Bids used. In the case of 90% return, the calculation basis is as a fee of 1 bid for any increment of 10. For example, if you place 5 bids in an auction, there is a one bid charge as a fee, and you will receive 4 bids back, however, if you place 10 bids in an auction, you will still only have one bid charged as the fee and you will receive 9 bids back. The same applies for each group of 10 bids placed after the first 10: if you were to bid 44 bids in an auction, you would pay 5 bids as the fee and receive 39 back. To receive the highest percentage available back, you need to bid in exact increments of 10.
