Are you just getting started? Here’s how DealDash works.
1. Buy Bids
Bids are what you use to bid in the auctions to try and win. Bids are available in a variety of different sizes of bid packs. The regular price per bid is 60 cents, and your first bid pack purchase will use this price. However, DealDash offers bid sales pretty much every day where you can purchase them from around 14-18 cents per bid. If you buy a larger bid pack, the cost per bid is usually much lower. Sometimes on holidays the prices will be even lower. You just have to be patient and see what the price is every day.
2. Browse Auctions, Do Research
All items sold on DealDash are brand new and come with manufacturer warranties. All of the items are clearly displayed, some with multiple pictures. All of the items have descriptions, and of course you can always google the item you’re interested in to get consumer reviews or more information.
3. Start Bidding
All auctions start at $0.00. Everytime you or anyone else bids it adds one penny to the final price of the item. Each bid from you or anyone else restarts the timer to 10 seconds and allows people to place bids until the timer reaches 0 or is reset again by someone bidding. You can bid one by one, or use the free tool to help you bid called the BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is an awesome tool that everyone should take advantage of – you can program it to bid as many times as you like, and you can watch it bid against the competition or step away from the computer, or even turn it off and go to sleep!
4. Win or BIN
When the timer reaches 0 and no one else places a bid, the last bidder wins the auction and pays the final auction fee that is displayed on the bidding screen. Sometimes DealDash offers half off all auctions, or even FREE auctions. When you start bidding in an auction you never know if it’s going to be over in a matter of minutes or even days! However, if it’s an item that’s important to you, you probably want to think about going “all the way” and be willing to BIN (Buy It Now) if you don’t win. That way, when you BIN the item for the retail price you get ALL of the bids back that you placed, as well as getting free shipping. Sounds great, right? Well get bidding!
