    Hey guys,

    I recently listed a site on flippa.com.

    And I put the starting bid at $1, the reserve at 240 and I started getting bids.

    The thing is, I see other auctions where people bid on them and the minimum bid price goes up. But mine stays at $1.

    How do I fix this?

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks. I just read that thread. Its some good explanations, and I learned a bunch of stuff, but that doesn't really reply to my question -

    Why when people bid on auctions, the minimum bid rises, and when they bid on mine - it doesn't?

    I literally don't get what you're talking about.

    Link to the auction?

    Minimum bid will raised automatically when someone bid on your auction.
    have you accepted/approved the bids?
    Please provide link to the auction.

    OK here is my case:

    This is my first listing. From what i read over at the learn how to sell section, an auction is declared won and I have to sell it if two conditions are met:

    There is a bid above the min bid and equal or more than the reserve

    And I accept that bid.

    Now lets say I have one bid that is for $20, and my resrve is $190.

    If I accept that bid, i won't have to sell the site to that person, but the minimum bid box will change to:

    Enter $20 or more.

    Thanks for your help.

    I've checked for your auction
    You haven't accept the bids yet.
    Try to login and tick all the bids then accept / confirm
    your minimum bids would be $40 if you accept all bids
    You won't have to sell your website if the bids didn't reached your reserve price
