How can I know if the seller has set the bottom bidding price?

Japan YAHOO Bidding:

In the bidding page

※ 「現在の価格」は最低落札価格に達していません。

That means the seller has the bottom price for the item: at the ending time the price did not meet the bottom price,

the highest bidder will show 〝なし〞 which means no one won the bid!


If the price exceeds the bottom price set by the seller,

※ 「現在の価格」は最低落札価格に達していません。This line will disappear, the highest bidder’s name will be shown the highest bidding place.


How do I increase the price?

Prior to the closing of the product, go to the "Bidding" item in the user center bidding order and select "Change Price" and fill in the maximum bid amount.

Therefore, all bidding items regularly take 3-40 working days (depends on the logistic services selected by customer) Some sellers on Yahoo or Mercari are home-based individuals, they may not able to reply message and ship out items promptly, so arrival may take longer than usual bid.
