If you haven't read it already, please read a bit more about How Auctions Work on Zora and the different ways you can bid on an NFT. It is useful to understand the difference between reserve auctions or buying the NFT via the "Buy it now" price.

Bidding in a reserve auction:

* Please make sure you have sufficient ETH in your connected wallet to cover the gas fee required to place a bid in an auction.

  • Go to the NFTs page you are wanting to place a bid on

  • Click "Place Bid" If you place the first bid, the bid must exceed or meet the reserve price set by the creator. If the reserve price has already been met, all subsequent bids must exceed the current bid by 5%.

  • Once the Reserve price has been met, the 24-hour countdown begins.

  • After you place your bid, your connected wallet will prompt you to confirm the transaction and pay a gas fee to complete the process. The funds will then be taken out of your wallet and placed in escrow in our smart contract. If you’re outbid, funds will be returned back into your connected wallet.
