EXTENDED BIDDING:(30 MINUTES MAXIMUM) The Extended Bidding option automatically extends the end time of your auction when a last minute bid is received. Extended bidding occurs when a bid is received on any item during the final 3 minutes of the auction. This results in the auction end time being extended by 3 minutes. This process repeats until no new bids are received during the final 3 minutes of the auction or the auction has been extended for a maximum of 30 minutes beyond the original end time. When an auction is extended, you will see Extended Bidding displayed on the auction item pages.
