Outbid the competition on the go


We’ve all been there. We’ve all had a coveted item snatched before our very nose for a few Rands only (to add insult to injury), just because some annoying prior commitment yanked us from our computer at the crucial moment.

Well, you need not suffer being outbid by default ever again. Subscribe to the bidorbuy SMS alerts and you’ll get notified when you have been outbid. To outbid the competitor in your turn, reply to the alert – and you are covered. There is no limit to bidding, wherever the obligations of life happen to take you. Just keep you cell phone close by!

The SMS alerts will also let you know when a listing you are watching is about to end.

This service is free to receive (well, not quite free, but bidorbuy will cover the costs of sending the alerts). However, you will be charged by your cell phone provided whenever you decide to reply to the alert, for example by placing a new, higher bid.

But that is a small price to pay for the pleasure of snatching an item from in front of somebody else’s nose!
