Flippa Auction Extension System Changed
  • Hey there,

    Quick heads up for you guys - Flippa have changed the way their 4-hour extensions work.

    While before auctions that had less than 4 hours till the scheduled end date would get extended BY four hours if a new bid was placed - now they get extended TO 4 hours.

    This might be a bit confusing so I'll illustrate.

    BEFORE

    Your auction is about to end at 4pm.

    A new bid is placed at 2pm. (less than 4 hours till the scheduled end time)

    Your auction now ends at 10pm, i.e. the remaining time PLUS 4 hours.

    NOW

    Your auction is about to end at 4pm.

    A new bid is placed at 2pm. (less than 4 hours till the scheduled end time)

    Your auction now ends at 8pm, i.e. 4 hours from the time the new bid came in.
