Question Bid History Question

In my bid history it shows that I was the only bid on a Mike Trout for the buy it now price. The bid is not listed in green, and I do not have the card. How did I not win?

If someone clicks Buy It Now, they get it. If you bid the Buy It Now price, it's a bid and does not beat someone clicking Buy It Now.

So somehow i screwed up and bid exactly the buy it now price and later lost to someone who clicked buy it now? I thought the auction ended instantly when you bid the buy it now price.

Yes and no. If you bid the buy it now price, you get a pop up saying you bid exactly the BIN and it asks if you want to buy it now. If you click OK, you get it immediately. If you click cancel, no bid is place on the player. So there doesn't appear to be anyway to have the bid placed at the exact BIN and then have to wait until the auction is over (though it would be possible that someone happens to beat you to the BIN before you can BIN and you end up with nothing, possible but unlikely due to the short amount of time).

Don't enter the BIN price and click "submit bid". Instead, just click the "Buy Now!" button.

Did you actually bid the BIN price?

Basically, there's a limitation that someone hitting "buy now" doesn't actually count as a "bid" in that counter there, so most likely you had a bid for, say, 20k, but then someone came in after and paid the full price (25k) for it.

You should be able to go back in your transaction history and see exactly what you bid for it.

I'm not sure I understand how to read the bid history.

I tend to play for a bit and then come back a while later, so I can't remember what I actually did here.

From the image I included, it looks like I bid the starting/buy it now price. At least the only person who bid on it did. I'm not sure why it would be in my bid history if I didn't bid.

I don't know why I wouldn't have just hit buy it now in the first place, but like I said, I don't remember what I was doing at the time..

I believe in 20 we may have slightly altered some of the wording on the bid history page to be a tad more clear about things, but yeah, the basic functionality is the same (you cannot bid the BIN price without buying now)
