Do you love QuiBids so much that you could scream it from the mountaintops? Are your free moments spent checking upcoming and recently completed auctions? Do you know your UPS driver on a first-name basis? If you said yes to any of these questions, then know you’re not alone! There are so many other QuiBidders sharing their experiences of positivity every day on our Facebook page, Twitter, and elsewhere. If you aren’t already taking part in these discussions, you’re missing out on some great wins, tips, and overall good company by truly incredible people!
However, there are times when new users will come to QuiBids without first understanding how the auction model works. These users typically end up bidding recklessly and, unfortunately, they can end up losing auctions. Because of this, we go to great lengths to proactively prevent this from happening to you.
After you get your first bid pack, a pop-up appears that prompts you to read QuiBids 101. From there, you’ll find all the information you’ll need to prepare you to start bidding.
Additionally, when a new bidder tries to bid on a big-ticket item, a similar pop-up appears encouraging the new bidder to start on smaller auctions until they get some experience under their belt.
Furthermore, once a user places enough real bids to equal the Buy Now price, a pop-up appears preventing the user from placing any more bids and prompting them to select Buy Now.
These are just a few of the measures we take to make sure bidders have the best possible opportunities for success on our site. The most important of these measures is the QuiBids 101 section itself. It’s packed with tons of useful information that will equip bidders with what they need to have a great bidding experience.
With that said, users who don’t take the time to read QuiBids 101 before bidding typically end up having a poor experience. We often see these users complaining on rant and review sites, and it makes us really sad to see this because we want every customer to have fun shopping on our site – especially because some of these sites have a disproportionately large number of negative to positive reviews.
