How do auctions work?

How can I participate in an auction?
To be able to participate in an auction you need to be logged into your account and have an auction nickname. If you already have an account, but have not chosen an auction nickname yet, you will be asked to create a nickname when you place your first bid.

Auction nickname
Your auction nickname will be shown when you bid on an auction. The auction nickname is publicly shown in the bids history, you can access it by clicking on the link below the “bid now” button that displays the number of bids.

Can I retract or cancel my bid?
When you place a bid on vidaXL, you enter a binding contract. However, it is possible to retract a bid before the end of an auction, but only in exceptional circumstances. Please contact our customer service for more information.
Exceptional circumstances:

The item's description changed significantly after you placed your bid.
