This website is an auction website platform which is best explained as being a virtual shopping channel. Bidding is done online, by telephone or by SMS. Customers can register to start biding or they can bid by text or phone without registering. All auctions are run in real time.
Customers will purchase packages of bids before they can start bidding (unless using txt or phone). Bids will have different costs depending on the number of bids purchased.
As soon as a bid is placed the system will work out whether the bid is; lowest but not unique or, Unique but not the lowest or, lowest unique bid. During the course of the auction these things can still change so for example a "unique but not lowest" could become the lowest as other bids are placed.
