Tips & Tricks

Everyone wants to know how to improve their chances of winning an auction at the Pylon Auction. The first thing that you need to know that a 100% guaranteed winning strategy simply does not exist, but we'll give you a few tips that should help when you commence bidding:


Place your bid within the last 10 seconds

When you place a bid in the last ten seconds, you know the time will reset and you'd be recognized as the winner. If someone else bids, time will be added and you'll get another chance to bid.           


Bid on the cheapest products   

You can get some great deals on our most expensive items. However, these items also tend to generate the most competitive auctions.  Fewer bidders bid on cheaper items, meaning that you are much more likely to win.


Closely monitor other bidders activity

View the details of the last ten bids placed and try to figure out:

  • Who is bidding?
  • When do they place their bids?



Pylon Auction has developed a set of changing promotions that would provide you an additional benefit. Check out the promotion banner on the front page or bid purchase page to see the currently active promotions.


Quick free bids

Each time you are the highest bidder, your bidder bar fills up. When the bar is full, you can claim your free bids and your level goes up. During “quick free bids” promotions the bar fills up faster, meaning that you will earn the next level and the free bids faster.


Daily Returning Bidder Reward

Keep on the bidding rally! By placing bids on consecutive days you increase the cap of your Daily Returning Bidder Reward. The maximum number of daily returned bids is 30 and depends on the number of bids you placed yesterday.


Auctions starting at the same time

More excitement, more deals. The timer counts down to the starting time of the auctions. Make sure to be online early enough to check out all the auctions before they start to make sure you find the most interesting products.


Bid pricing

The bid price may change daily depending on the active offers. Make sure to check out the current offer often, not to miss out on the cheapest days.


Auction leaderboards

When the Auction leaderboard promotion is active, the three bidders who have collected the most time as the highest bidder in an auction will earn additional bid rewards.


Daily winning limits

Each bidder will be able to win a maximum of 5 auctions each day when this promotion is active. Once bidders win their 5 items, they won't be able to enter more auctions until the end of the day, which means less competition for bidders who still haven't hit their limit.


Mystery auctions

Mystery auctions are marked with a question mark. The item is revealed 5 minutes before the auction starts. This means that there is likely to be less competition in these auctions.


No exchange auctions

Unlike most auctions, auctions marked with a red "no exchange" icon cannot be exchanged for bids by the winner. This means that everyone participating in one of these auctions is in it to purchase the product.
