Higher bidders are not increasing. There is less bidder because less new active Affiliates. So there is a disbalance in the bidders proportion.

Yes, I too have noticed there are less auctions at any one time than before. I am curious as to the reason.

Less hours are in effect; Pre-bidding; and less items.

The time was reduced from 12 hours to 6 hours. Not less auctions, just less active auctions at any given time because the shorter time frame.

Hi Skumar I have noticed that also. Certainly only very few auction where we can collect double MRP. also the shortening of the timer is good. 12hrs is much too long (certainly for me) The other reason is the Pre-Bidding: makes it almost impossible now for some of us to win an Auction just my opinion

My opinion as a normal affiliate, absolutely not as an expert, is that by now with the enlargement of the community wordlwide, participation to auction is mainly reduced to SFI direct products either not requiring delivery or available for delivery wordlwide. I personally noticed a massive aggressive participation during the first half of the month, lower in the second half. Winning prices have not a constant trend and those reaching the highest number of bids are no doubts the double MRP. I personally find auctions less interesting unless you are not chasing extra VRP and MRP. When you cannot get results from an auction you end up to turning to something else, i.e. games (for fun) and purchase of products (price convenience). :raised_hands:

This actually are for people who wants few VP or mrp without having to sit and bid manually . Good to have this feature for those who are able to watch auctions live and snipe a win after all prebids are over.

Hi Skumar! As you said - the number of high bidders has increased and that's the good thing, do you agree? All this is happening for a good reason - to make some room for everybody and I salute that!!! Best regards !
