What is an eBay bid increment?


In order to place a bid on eBay auctions, you must place a bid above the current bid + the bid increment. Bid increment refers to the minimum amount an auction bid must be raised during bidding. Bid increments are smaller when the bid price is low and larger on higher-priced auctions. Each eBay website has different increments.  See the list below:
