Autobids (automatic bids) submit bids for Open Cry auctions on behalf of customers.

Customers supply the following information for each autobid:

  • The initial bid price
  • The maximum bid limit
  • The required quantity
  • Their willingness to accept a partial quantity

Autobids are server-side agents that periodically update bids to maintain a winning status until the maximum bid limit is reached.
