Ebanned's proxy bidding is, in effect, your personal buyer assistant when you can't be here.
The definition of proxy bidding is:
Placing a maximum bid, which is held in confidence by our software. Ebanned will use only as much of the maximum bid as is necessary to maintain the bidder's high bid position.
Because of this, it may appear that two bidders have "tied" in their fight to win an item. This is not so and will never happen on a regular listing. If you have two bidders with what appears to be the same bid, it means that the first bidder (the winner) had a proxy set and the second bidder (not the winner) entered the same amount as the first bidder. In this case, the first person who bids the highest, wins.
