I made a lower grouped bid. What happens next?
Lower bids are valid for 30 days. After that, they disappear from your grouped bids.
They will also be removed from this page if at least one of the sales is won by another member or if one of them is comes to an end.
During this time, the seller can either:
- Accept your bid
If your bid is accepted, it will no longer appear in my grouped bids. It will be added to purchase tracking.
- Make a counter-bid
The counter-bid will appear in your grouped bids.
You can accept or refuse it by clicking on “Answer”.
- Refuse your bid
The message “Refused” will appear clearly in red.
By clicking on "Modify", you can make a higher bid than your previous bid, add an item to your grouped bid or remove an item from your grouped bid
- Ignore your bid
The seller is not required to answer you. In this case the status of your bid will be “Pending”.
