Hello DealDashers! I am back again this week to answer a very common question that members have about DealDash. What Is BidBuddy ?
BidBuddy is a very underutilized tool used for bidding on DealDash. Mainly because people do not know what it is or how it works and the advantages that it can be used for to help them win more auctions.
When you go to the item that you are interested in bidding on, under the Timer, you will see the “Bid Now” yellow bar. This allows you to make one bid at a time. Below the “Bid Now” bar you will find your BidBuddy tool and basic information. BidBuddy is an automatic bidding tool used so that you do not have to keep clicking the “Bid Now” button every time you wish to make a bid. BidBuddy will do this automatically for you. In the white “Add Bids Here” box simply put in the amount of bids you wish to make. Let’s say 25 bids in our example are the number of bids you would like to start with. You can always add more bids later or stop BidBuddy at anytime.
Just because you put in 25 bids does not mean you have to use them all. You could have bid 10 times and see that the auction has got hot again and you want to stop bidding for now and just cancel BidBuddy and it will return to you the 15 unused bids you had not yet made. So you never lose unused bids by using the BidBuddy bidding tool. Let’s say you wish to add 25 more bids to the BidBuddy system because us have almost used up your first 25 bids. Simply go to the white “Add Bids Here box and click on Book a BidBuddy again and 25 more bids would be added to your remaining bids from the first time.
Of course just like making individual bids you have to develop your own strategy that works for you in using the BidBuddy system. Maybe you want to jump in early in the bidding and try to get the item quick. Perhaps your strategy will be to wait until the bidding cools down. You have to use BidBuddy with care and develop a strategy just like when using the “Bid Now” bar making bids manually.
If you go to the main DealDash page to the bottom of the page and look under the HELP section you will see FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). If you click on FAQ it will take you to this webpage and about half way down the page you will see a good explanation of the BidBuddy system which may further help and guide you. Here is a direct link to the FAQ page: http://www.dealdash.com/faq You may also access the FAQ page by pushing the FAQ button located at the top of your screen located next to your “My Dashboard” button.
