No one likes a rude bidder. There are rude bidders out there, but you don’t want to be one! Read these DealDash tips for polite bidding.
Have you ever been bidding in a DealDash auction, and everything is going great – people are using their BidBuddies, everyone is taking turns, and no one is doing anything out of the ordinary…Then all of a sudden in comes a wild bidder! They are throwing bids around like confetti, stomping here and there, and generally making a nuisance of themselves? If you don’t recognize this scenario, it’s possible that you are the wild bidder that everyone gives a heavy sigh when they see you enter the auction. Let’s read some tips from DealDash on how to be a more polite and well-liked bidder.
Why should you be concerned about being a polite and more well-liked bidder? Well, other than the fact that it’s just the nice thing to do, polite and well-liked bidders on DealDash tend to win more auctions. If I have been in a long auction battle with another bidder who has been politely using their BidBuddy the entire time, and it’s an auction that I plan on BINning (Buy It Now) anyway, I might stop bidding once it’s down to the two of us. I wouldn’t do this if we are only halfway to winning, but if we are $5 or less away from my personal BIN limit, I might do the nice thing and stop so they get a little discount if they have been a polite bidder the whole time. I don’t always do this, of course, but if you have been a rude bidder I will do the exact opposite, and bid way past my personal BIN limit, just to spite you. See, it makes sense to be polite.
What constitutes a rude bidder? Opinions on this vary slightly, but it’s pretty much agreed that “Stompers” and “Jumpers” are considered very rude in DealDash Land. What are Stompers and Jumpers? The Stomper picks an auction, and rather than bidding politely and waiting for the timer to go down to 2 or 3 seconds they bid immediately after a person, therefore cheating the person out of their “clock time.” The Jumper is someone who waits until the auction has alllllmost reached the $5 No Jumper limit and places their first bid, usually between $4.75-$5.
