Are you missing out on some of the outstanding deals that happen every day on QuiBids?  Have you finally talked yourself into seeing what QuiBids is all about, but don’t know where to start?  Typically when a person comes to QuiBids for the first time, they become astounded, and perhaps a little skeptical, after seeing thousands of top-of-the-line products being sold at unbelievably low prices.  Below, we attempt to answer the question that everyone seems to ask after first visiting QuiBids.com:  “How do I start bidding?

Step 1 – Register For an Account

You cannot place a bid in any auction, nor can you take advantage of the sweet deals on QuiBids, until you register with the site.  Signing up is free and usually takes no more than three minutes.  You will be asked to supply your basic information such as your full name, gender, date of birth, and email address.  You will also be asked to create a username.  This will be the username viewed by other users each time you place a bid.  You must check the box stating that you have read and agree to the Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy.  QuiBids also gives you the option to sign up for the QuiBids Newsletter for three free bonus bids!

Step 2 – Buy Bids

Upon signing up, you can then complete your payment information. Should you purchase an initial Bid Pack, your account will be credited with the Starter Bid Package (100 bids for $60). On QuiBids, each bid costs just $0.60, and after you purchase the initial Starter pack, you will have the option of purchasing bid packages of different sizes.  Keep in mind that your bids will have an expiration date depending on how they were acquired.  To see when your bids expire go to My QuiBids and click on “Bid Credit History.”  QuiBids accepts multiple payment methods, including: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal, and Discover.  Click here to purchase a bid package on QuiBids.

Step 3 – Find an Auction

Next, you will need to determine which auction you’d like to place your bids.  Whether it is a brand new 60” 3D HDTV, a high-powered tablet, or even a gift card, you are free to bid on any item available to you.  However, we recommend starting on the smaller auctions like gift cards or voucher bids until you become better acquainted with our auction model.  In order to provide each customer with the most success while bidding, QuiBids strongly encourages bidders to read QuiBids 101 and the FAQs before placing a bid.  After you have read through these sections, take the quiz located on QuiBids 101 to receive the Training Day Badge and  3 FREE bids!

Step 4 – Bid

Once you have read all of the materials and have chosen the product in which to place your bid, you are now ready to start bidding!  Simply click the orange-colored button labeled ‘Bid.’  Each time you place a bid, QuiBids deducts one bid from your Account and resets the clock to around 10 – 20 seconds, similar to the “Going…Going…Gone!”  format of traditional auctions.  If you are the last bidder when the timer reaches zero, YOU WIN!
