Why does the timer reset in the final seconds when a user bids?
Because it's an auction! GunBiddler wants to guarantee each user the chance to participate in our auctions, so we've adopted the timer as means of imitating the 'Going once... going twice... SOLD!'- aspect of a traditional auction.
Why does GunBiddler cost $0.60-$0.85 per bid to participate in an auction?
GunBiddler is built on a pay-to-participate business model wherein each bid comes at a cost. Consumers may purchase those bids in bid packs, which are then deposited into their Bids Account. Once a user buys a bid pack, he or she may participate in any auction.
I just spent bids in an auction and didn't win. Can I retrieve those used bids?
Per the ’Terms & Conditions, GunBiddler does not refund any bids used in auctions.
Why are some items on GunBiddler more expensive than the prices posted on Amazon?
GunBiddler maintains relationships with multiple suppliers and strives to acquire products at the best prices possible. Know that we value our user's business, and that we always strive to reward you by providing the best possible prices online.
I see some of the same usernames in multiple auctions. Does GunBiddler have any bots or shill bidders?
No. GunBiddler does not employ any bots or shill bidders. The use of such devices to drive bidding up (or for any other purpose) conflicts with our company policy. Users can bid in multiple auctions simultaneously, so it's possible to see a username in multiple auctions at once. However, a user cannot win more than 4 auctions in a 5 day period unless said user has won a Limit Buster Auction.
I've been in an auction when suddenly, a new bidder places a bid and leaves. What's up with that?
More than likely a bidder who does this is new to the site and isn’t following any strategy. GunBiddler suggests that all users read through the GunBiddler Bidding Tips. This doesn't guarantee that an inexperienced user won't jump around from auction to auction, however. Every game has amateurs!
I notice sometimes when I bid, there's a timer lag that lasts longer than one second. Why is that?
Lag issues can happen from time to time, depending on a customer's geographic location, browser, internet service and innumerable other factors. GunBiddler recommends that customers use specific browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, to optimize their experience on the site. You can read our recommendations at our "PC Recommendations" section at the top of the "Technical Problems" page.
Can I be refunded if I purchase a bid pack but decide not to participate on the site
Bid Packs are refundable until one or more bids have been used from that pack. I.E. If you purchase a 20 round bid pack and decide not to play, you may recieve a refund. If you purchase a 20 round bid pack and use one of those bids, then your bids are no longer refundable. Please contact customer support to request a refund of any unused bid packs.
