Autobidding examples

Two autobidders bid against each other

When two autobidders bid against each other, the team making the second max bid will first raise the current bid with the minimum amount. Then the system will compare the two bids and immediately make the deciding bid.

Example: Team A makes a max bid of $50,000, and through that gets the highest bid which is $20,000. Then Team B makes a max bid of $40,000. Then the bid history will look like this:

Team A - $20,000
Team B - $21,000
Team A - $41,000

As you can see, the system checks the two bids and skips the bidding part up to where Team A raises Team B's max bid (40,000) by the minimum amount.


In case two teams make the same max bid

In case two teams make the same max bid, the basic rule is that the first bidder gets to make that bid. If we use the example above with the change that Team B also makes a max bid of $50 000 it will look like this:

Team A - $20,000
Team B - $21,000
Team A - $50,000

The system checks the two bids and skips the bidding part up to the max. As the max bid is the same for both teams, the first bidder gets to make that bid.


In case a normal bid is made of the same amount as an active max bid

If someone places a manual bid equal to an already active max bid, the first bidder (the autobidder) will lose the bid. This is because manual bids take priority over autobids. It will look like this in the bid history:

Team A – $20,000
Team B – $50,000


In case someone makes a manual bid which is lower than an active max bid, but the active max bid is not high enough to raise the bid by 2%

Here again the basic rule is that the manual bidder becomes the first mover in a close auction against an autobid. Using the example from above, but say team B makes a bid of 49 $500 instead. Team A can't raise this bid as his max is $50 000, and the auction ends with Team B as the winner. The bid history will look like this:

Team A – $20,000
Team B – $49,500
