Never a hidden reserve at GreatCollections...

At GreatCollections, we believe in full transparency, yet still ensuring that all transactions are kept confidential between the buyer and seller.

We start all auctions at a minimum bid amount, which is the lowest amount you can bid.  You can bid at or above the minimum bid amount or if there is already a bid on the item, you must bid at least the amount of the next bid, equalling the current bid plus the bidding increment.

If you place a secret maximum bid, our system will bid on your behalf if there are other bidders, and will only use your maximum bid in order to secure the item for you.

In addition, GreatCollections offers items for Buy Now, which you can instantly purchase without having to wait for an auction to end.
