    Hello,

    A year ago when I was selling on flippa, I remember if someone bid when the auction is about to end, the time increases to 4 hours. Is it still like this or they have made some changes.

    Thanks

    Yeah, pretty sure they reduced it from 4 hour extension to 1 hour extension a while ago now.

    That was really long time to an auction. I think they just leave few second when someone bid at final minute.

    flippa does this because they don't want people sniping at auctions (1 second left and then bidding) like at ebay
