|The time and date, displayed in GMT, is the
"normal" closing time for an auction.
But beware this can change:
|1-||If the seller decides to close his/her auction early
In which case the highest bid, if above reserve, is taken as the winning bid.
The close time is automatically extended by 1 minute, if a bid is received within the last 30 seconds of an auction.
This is repeated until there are no further bids and is similar to a live auction room, where the auctioneer continues to take bids until all bidding is finished.
Auto Extend Feature
If the seller has elected for auto extend, and the reserve is not met
or a bid is not received the auction will not close and is automatically extended for
another cycle, typically 7 days.
