Most items have minimum bids. You cannot bid lower than that number. Once you make a bid, your bid will show up in in your bidding account on the upper right hand section of the screen. You can track your bids and see when you have been outbid.
A few items have “Buy Now” opportunities. If you want to buy the item at that price the item will be marked as sold. You can pay for your item right away or wait until the auction closes. You will be contacted by the Bidding Owl site to pay for your purchase price.
