This will continue until the extended time has run out without new bids being placed. This is done to ensure transparency and fairness of bidding and enable the highest bidder to win.
NOTIFICATIONS: You may receive emails regarding changes/updates to listings, pickup information, invoices, etc. You can choose to receive outbid notifications by email. These notifications are sometimes delayed and may not be received in time to rebid.
