Bidder’s Guidelines

      How do I bid ?

To bid in RANGI LALLS Auction, you will have to be a registered buyer. For registration you have to log into RANGI LALLS Auction Website and click the button for registering.

After the payment is made your login will be activated and you will be allowed to bid.
How many auctions can I bid on?
There is no limit to the number of auctions you can bid. So long an auction is active you can bid as many as you like.
What is the difference between straight bidding and automatic bidding?
You can bid on an item by straight bidding or automatic bidding (automatic bidding is also referred to as “Auto Bid”).
Straight bidding:
Enter an amount higher than the current winning bid and click the bid button. Your bid will be accepted.
Automatic bidding (Auto Bid) :
Automatic bidding places bids on your behalf at pre specified increments. Simply enter your maximum bid (the highest amount you are willing to pay), and the increment amount.
What are the bid increments ?
Any new bid must be greater than the current high bid. The minimum additional amount you’re required to add on the previous bid is called the bid increment.
Can I cancel my bid ?
After you place a bid on the auction item page, you cannot cancel the bid. So before you bid, be very careful whether you are willing to bid or you have the sufficient fund to purchase the item in case you win the bid.
What is a reserve price?
The reserve price is the lowest price the seller is willing to accept for the auction item. In fact the seller puts reserve price for every item he posts before the starting of an auction.
How do I know that my bid was accepted?
During the bidding process, you will see the highest bid on the Bidding page. If your bid is the highest, the page will show you the highest bid. (This doesn’t mean that you’ve won the auction, only that your bid is currently the highest bid. To win, the auction must close without any higher bids.)
