A user should enter an amount more than the minimum bid value. If a user enters highest bid amount then the system lists his/her account name in the product’s detail as the highest bid. Before bidding the user can check for product details, image, and bidding logs easily. The system also displays time left to bid and the number of bids.

Which displays a small message of the user’s account with the placed bid on certain product item. He/she can easily check all the product’s post, end date, the number of bidders, products on bid and bidding logs easily. Another main feature is about adding products to a bid.
