How to Bid or Buy
Buy It Now – Some Little Marley sellers will provide a Buy It Now option to purchase an item immediately at a fixed price.
Place a Bid / Auction – Little Marleys Auction is an automatic bidding system. Bid on the item you are wanting to purchase, and we will tell if someone else bids a higher amount.
We recommend you put in the highest amount you are willing to pay for the item. Little Marleys bidding system will increase your bid by increments as required, so that you remain the highest bidder until your maximum bid is reached. If someone bids higher than your maximum, we will send you a notification in case you want to bid again.
Note: Only bid on items you intend to buy. If you win, you must pay the seller. You will not be able to retract your bid.”
Retract a Bid
Little Marley registered users will be able to retract a bid placed on an item, if the following circumstances are relevant: a) There is 10 or more hours left in the auction b) You made a legitimate mistake when placing your bid. An example of this is bidding $100 instead of $10 c) The item description has changed significantly since you placed your bid. If none of the above circumstances have occurred, you must contact the seller directly on Little Marley and ask if you can retract your bid. The seller must cancel the bid on your behalf.
