    It is my first time at flippa and seems that after each last bid flippa extends the auction time 6 hours. It seems to be an never ending game to me. I digged all over my dashboard and didn't find any way to stop thia auto extension.
    Is there any way to stop this? And is it any good?

    If you get a bid within the last 4 hours it will be extended by another 4 hours which is a good thing unless you need the cash.

    If you are happy with the final bid (assuming it made reserve) you can go to the auction and go to "complete and end" - this will accept the last bid. If it hasn't met reserve it will end unsold (or use this if you want to risk selling privately).

    The extention is a good thing for sellers, but a nightmare for buyers when Flippa wont allow you to bid by proxy.

    I'd just add a BIN price so someone can buy it strait up.

    Well that's a great news! I would like people to bids more on my auction, however if I do need a quick cash;

    Let suppose current bids now is $3000 and people kept bidding on it, your reserve has met as well. Just put a BIN near the $3000. Simple example maybe $3010. Why wouldn't people bid $3011 while they can get it now for $3010? But I wouldn't do it if I were you :D

    I will put the BIN higher instead because I know it is hot selling there :p
