Auctions FAQ

1.    What is “Max Price” of the product ?

E.g. If the max price of a product is Rs 10.00, values greater 10.00 will not be accepted

2.    What is “Bid Quota” ?
Bid quota is the minimum number of bids allotted for the auction.

12.    What happens after winning ?
If you are the winner, you will be presented with 3 options which you can chose from.
