Starting Price vs Bid Increment vs Buy Now

  • Starting Price:  the amount you want to set for the opening bid on an item.
  • Bid Increment:  the amount you want your bid to be on an item or the integer they will increase by. A formula we recommend is:  Set your FMV, Starting Price will be approx 30-40% of your FMV, and your Bid Increment will be 10% of your Starting Price.  Keep in mind when you enter these into Handbid, they must be whole numbers - no $$ or decimal points.

Buy Now Price:  the price you set on an item where it can be purchased outright.  Understanding how a Buy It Now Price works
