You may enter up to 2 pictures for each lot. If you have created a URL for your picture you can enter the URL or, more easily, upload your picture directly from your computer onto Speedbid.
For every lot there are 2 different picture text boxes, one is for direct Upload from your Computer and the other for you to enter a URL. The Upload field is listed first and has a "Browse" button to the right of it. This field is only good for Upload direct from your computer. (Do Not try to enter a URL in this field). If you enter a URL (this is the URL as you would type it into your browser to view the picture, starting with "http://"), the URL should be entered in the text box that says "URL". (Do not enter a URL in the text box that has the "Browse" button after it).
To upload a picture directly from your computer, click on the Browse button to the right of the text box that says "Upload". A window will pop up for you to select your picture file. This window is just like the typical Open File window when you open a file on your computer. Find the picture you want to use on your computer, and then click Open. The filepath to that picture will automatically be entered into the text box next to the Browse button.
If you both upload a file directly from your computer and also enter the URL of a picture then Speedbid will automatically use the uploaded image and ignore the URL. Speedbid will also automatically reject any uploaded file that is not a valid picture. Valid picture fields must be of the following types (based on the file extension): .gif, .jpg, jpeg, or .png .
When you finally enter the lot for auction, your picture will automatically be shown on the Speedbid lot page. Please note that depending on the size of the picture, the form may take a few seconds to submit while the picture is being uploaded. Your picture will disappear shortly after the auction ends.

The seller's commission is calculated:
|£0.01 - £20.00||5%|
|then £20.01 +||+ 2.5%|
A sale of £250 would attract the following commission
First £20 @ 5% = £1.00
Then £230 @ 2.5% = £5.75
Total commission due = £1.00 + £5.75 = £6.75 paid to SPEEDBID
This offer is good for one relisting only. If you want to relist your item, then you need to enter your USERNAME and PASSWORD in the My Speedbid box on the Homepage. This will take you to your office. There you will be able to view closed lots, and click the link to re-open those recently closed.
The other type of auction you may want to run is the 'Reserve Price' auction. Here the seller specifies the reserve price when they list the item. This reserve price is never revealed to bidders until it has been reached. The price is set above the starting price. The auction starts at the starting price, and when a bidder's bid is equal to, or greater than, your reserve price, the item can be sold. In other words, the reserve price is the lowest price at which a seller is willing to sell an item. If an item doesn't reach a reserve price, then the seller and any bidders are released from any obligation to complete a sale.
IMPORTANT: If you receive an email enquiry asking what your Hidden Reserve is, we recommend that you do not divulge this information. We believe that a bidder who has this information has an unfair advantage over other interested parties and, knowing your hidden reserve, will not place a winning bid until the last minute thereby reducing your chances of getting the best sale price for your lot. After all, if you wish to advertise your reserve then you can quite simply make it the starting price and avoid the email enquiries.
Most of this fraud, where the cardholder wasn't present, would have taken place during ordinary mail order transactions. When using your card on our internet auction site, SPEEDBID uses industry standard SSL encryption between your browser and Barclays Merchant Services secure server. This gives between in excess of 40 bit and 128 bit encryption depending upon the capability of the customer's browser. We conform to the highest physical/ internet security standards required by the UK Merchant Card Service companies.
The process is fully automated and Credit Card authorisation currently takes about 7 seconds. In the totally unlikely event that someone would want to dishonestly use a credit card to buy advertising space at such small amounts, and be exposed for so long whilst in the process, it should be remembered that each contact carries the computer coding of the internet provider which allows the individual user to be easily traced. There are no eavesdroppers and no carbon copies to go missing. Use your card with confidence.
No refunds shall be offered on fees, except where it is proven a transaction wasn’t completed by the buyer.
