    If I'm not mistaken, you have to pay to bid. Each bid is small but it adds up.

    You can win your bid at a low cost, but if you fail, you still need to pay.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yea, something like that, one you bid, you have to pay even if you loose.

    fake one la. u look at the dell vostro. retail price 2xxx, current bidding price 62.29. whenever the clock hits 00.01 the system will auto bid itself. and how long does it take to deliver the item to you? what about warranty?

    if you scroll down, you will see apple's logo in the footer. Hahahah, dumb. please la. apple will never low ball itself loh

    rugi business, who wants to do right?

    it started a few years ago, about the same time as groupon.

    groupon's model is worse. No wait, it should not even get recognized as a "business model".

    you are advised to give 50% off, then they will take another 50% out of your discounted price.

    They make their money by selling you bids. It's pay per bid. You can look at it as a form of gambling. The house always wins! :lol:

    Where got you bid you have to pay? No lah.. As far as I know and bid, you bid you don't have to pay. Ebay, and for Malaysia, Lelong - Auction & Online Shopping Malaysia. These no need to pay for bidding punya. My mates used to always bid and bid and bid for the sake of bidding and if they can get it cheap, they grab it.

    We are not talking about eBay or Lelong. We know you only pay when you win, we are talking about different sites where you have to pay to buy bids.

    Hi, i dont think it's really advisable to pay to bid. Because, if one does not win, one is at a great loss.
