Misc. eBay Notes
* eBay will immediately send you an e-mail confirmation about your bid and another email if you are outbid.
* If someone else has entered a Maximum Bid amount, eBay will automatically increment the Current Bid upward by the Bid Increment amount until the Maximum Bid amount of one of the bidders is reached.
* After the bidding period for this item has expired, eBay will send an email to the highest bidder.
* Although it is possible to cancel a bid you have placed, this is discouraged so you don't run the risk of receiving a flag by your User ID that indicates the number of retractions or maybe even account cancellation.
