Introducing BidLock

To ensure Proxibid continues to offer the most trusted way to connect buyers and sellers of highly valued items, we have developed BidLock to protect buyers from unintentional bids. BidLock is the newest addition to our Risk Management toolkit, and provides and added layer of security when bidding on Proxibid using any device.

 

What is BidLock?

  • This intuitive and easy-to-use product keeps the bid button in a “locked” or disabled state until the bidder chooses to enable the button
  • BidLock protects against “pocket bids” and other instances of accidental bidding
