Sometimes winning auctions can be tricky. Are you making mistakes that are keeping you from winning more auctions?
In life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. It’s the same on DealDash. Occasionally it seems to me that I bid and bid and can’t seem to win. While getting on a losing streak is never fun, it’s a good chance to examine your behavior and habits on DealDash. Are you doing things to contribute to your losses? Let’s take a peek and see.
Are you Over Extending Yourself?
Are you bidding in more than 2 or 3 auctions at a time? This isn’t a good idea, no matter how you go about it. Bidding on more than a couple of auctions at a time does not increase your chances of winning an auction, it only increases your chance to waste bids. The exception to this is if you are bidding up to the BIN (Buy It Now) price every time.
If you are trying to place bids here and there on many auctions at a time, it’s not going to end up positively for you, unless you happen to get lucky. The best practice is to only bid in a couple of auctions at a time. This way you can give them your full attention. Personally, I try to never bid in more than 2 auctions at a time, unless I have completely filled up my BidBuddy and plan on bidding up to the BIN price.
Paying Close Attention is a Must
This goes hand-in-hand with only bidding in a few auctions at a time. You need to stay alert and concentrate on the auctions that you are bidding in. If you get distracted with life and wander away from the auctions you will find yourself losing. If you can’t pay close attention to the auctions that you are in, be sure that you load up your BidBuddy and let him bid for you while you are busy with your other chores.
Open Up the Individual Auction Pages
Don’t bid from the main home screen of DealDash! You need to open up each individual auction’s page if you want to win. If you’re not opening up the actual auction and just bidding from the main home screen then it’s unlikely that you’ll win. If you like to bid on more than 1 auction at once, open up multiple tabs or windows on your computer. Bidding from the home screen puts you at a huge disadvantage.
Opening up each auction offers you key information to help you win. You can see what the item has previously sold for, the reviews on the item if there are any, and you can set the BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is the only way that you’re going to have any real success on DealDash.
You Can’t Win Them All – BIN is Your Friend
Don’t lose twice. Using a lot of bids on an auction and then not using the BIN (Buy It Now) feature if you don’t win the auction is just like losing all over again. When you BIN an auction that you didn’t win, you get exactly the amount of bids that you placed back in your account to use again, as well as free shipping on the product. Since you have everything back that you originally started with, you break even.
