Never bid on a Timed Auctions before?

It is a Timed Auctions which works a little differently to our normal format. It is online only and works a little bit like an eBay auction. You can start bidding now until the lot finishing time. You’ll find how much time left on each lot. The first lot ends at 12:30 pm on Saturday the 20th March and the auction is likely to finish around 6pm.  

Here is a good article explaining how timed auctions works on Invaluable: https://www.invaluable.com/blog/winning-strategies-for-bidding-in-timed-auctions/
