I do not understand the concept of the site, maybe you can explain it so that someone of limited intelligence, like myself..;>, can understand the concept behind it.

$12.02 = 1202 bids at $0.50. That driver got them $601 from all the bidders in total. These auctions are usually a great deal for the seller.

It's true, these sites are GENIUS for the seller, they are sometimes getting 2-3X what they pay for the product. That being said, you CAN get good deals from these sites, if you know what you are doing.

 

John, the way it works is, you purchase bids for $.50/each. Each time you bid on a product, it goes up by $.01. The other night, a Ping I20 sold for $2.13, which equals 213 bids, which in turn equals a net of $106.50.....not a great deal for the seller. If you were the person that put in the bid to get it to $2.13, and it was your only bid, then you just bought yourself a Ping I20 for a whopping total of $2.43 plus $20 shipping, thats a great deal.

true but any bidder can buy the item at the end and get their bid $$ back. So no downside from buying retail and a lot of fun and opportunity for great savings

Yeah, I get it. You're probably selling these clubs at a low price to be nice to golfers in need of new equipment. This type of auction is only profitable if the activity is high and the bids keep coming. Yes, someone walks away with a great deal. If they're lucky. If you don't win anything - which is what happens to most of the bidders - you've spent money on nothing.

There were literally only 6 other people bidding when I won. I've already received confirmation from Richard (ceogolfbids) of my R11s.

I was on that site tonight just to observe the bidding process in the final minutes. I was amazed that the bidding stopped when it did. All I can figure is the other bidders must have been waiting on each other to make another bid, and no one did. Good bidding WD. Nice catch.

Not true at anytime you can buy the product and get your bid money on that auction back.

I agree we had 9 people bidding and everyone thought they'd let someone bid next and WD got very lucky. Gotta us the BidCaddy because it will never lose unless you are out of bids.

Well... you can't expect the seller to live off charity, can you? They must make profit somehow/somewhere.

 

The rules are clearly drawn out, so bidding is really your own choice.
