It is very easy to text a bid for an auction item:
Once you enter the auction keyword you will get a response welcoming you to the auction. You are now ready to bid!
Type the number of the item you are interested in to find the current bidding level. Remember to input a zero to begin the item number.
You will receive a reply confirming the item and telling you the current bid level. Enter the dollar amount you want to bid.
You will get a reply confirming your bid and congratulating you on being the winning bidder! Don't worry, you will also get instructions on how to undo your bid if it was made in error.
You will receive a text if you are outbid and will be able to increase your bid and hopefully win the item!
