No, that other buyer isn’t trying to front run you, MonsteraX utilizes an Automatic Bidding system
Automatic bidding is the easiest way to bid on a MonsteraX auction. Simply enter the highest price you’re willing to pay for an item, and we'll do the rest.
To set up automatic bidding on an auction listing, enter the maximum amount you’d like to pay for the item and select Place bid. We’ll bid in increments on your behalf to keep you in the lead but only up to your limit.
If you are outbid immediately after placing a bid, it’s likely that another bidder is using automatic bidding and has a maximum limit higher than yours. You’ll need to increase your maximum limit in order to be the highest bidder.
When someone else places a bid, we’ll place a slightly higher bid on your behalf. The amount the bid increases by is known as a bid increment. MonsteraX’s bid increment amount is $1.
To summarize, when someone else bids on the item you are bidding for, we’ll place a slightly higher bid on your behalf to keep you in the lead.
