Swoopo

Please review our some of the most significant features of Swoopo.

In order to participate in Swapoo auction, registered users must first buy bids (called credits, and henceforth referred to as "Bid-credits") before entering into an auction. For the US version of the site, Bid-credits cost $0.60 apiece and are sold in lots (called BidPacks) of 40, 75, 150, 400, and 1,000. Each credit is good for one bid. Standard auctions begin with an opening price of $0.12 and every time someone bids the price increases by $0.12. Other auction types use different values, penny auctions use $0.01, 6¢ auctions $0.06, etc. The price of bids and the incremental values vary depending on the regional version of the site used.

The auction ends when time runs out. However, because each bid extends the length of the auction by 10-20 seconds, the auction could theoretically continue on indefinitely.

Besides making single bids anytime, users can place a so-called "Bidbutler", which is an automatic bidding tool. Users can employ a maximum of 50 Bidbutler bids each time. Once a Bidbutler is active, it will automatically bid in the final 10 seconds of the auction in an attempt to keep the user as the highest bidder. This means if two or more Bidbutlers are active they will repeatedly bid against each other (before the auction time increment is applied) until the one with the most bids left is the "winner". Bidbutler bids hold no more value than single manually placed bids, so once the bids booked for a Bidbutler are exhausted a single manually placed bid can become the winning bid.
