:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: ,I have been watching this sale for allmost 2 months. I did all the paper work to call in a bid. Since it was a long ways to go after it I only put in a 2500.00 Canadian bid on it. Well I had the bid and the other guy bid 2500 so the auctineer was honoring my bid and didn't go over it.:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

jody,

Seems to me it's the other way around. $2500 Canadian is only $1884 US, while $2500 US is worth $3317 Canadian. The US$ bid of 2500 was higher and should have got it.

What I don't understand is:

"Well I had the bid and the other guy bid 2500 so the auctineer was honoring my bid and didn't go over it".

Sorry, but I'm confused...

ya the can dollar is lower then the us dollar so if you were going to buy something in canada for 500 can it would cost you about 400 or some thing like that but the seller still gets 500 but in us


do you get it know ?????

the auction took place in canada so all bids would be in canadianian $ caseman would have placed an absentee bid of $2500 meaning the auctioneer would go go up to whatever limit he set in this case being $2500. by the sounds of it caseman had the bid say at $2400 then someone else bid $2500 wich is the limit he had set. its tough break i've had it happen to me a few times i now set an odd limit just above what i would pay in this case $2525. better luck next time caseman

jbetts,

"but the seller still gets 500 but in us"

When I buy things in Canada, Vancouver, I usually pay in $US. If the item is $500 Canadian, and I hand the seller $400 US ($530 CN), I get the item AND $30 CN back. The seller gets only the $500 CN he asked for, and I only paid $500 CN for it.

caseman,

Did the other guy bid $2500 US ($3316 CN)????

If so, I can see why he got it.

Well explained bear, You are right I should have placed an odd bid. I will know better next time. There are at least 2 other auctions on my list. :D :D :D :D :D

Greg, the other guy got it for 2500 Canadain. I should have used the conversion chart before placing my bid. I just figured 2000.00 USA instead of the 1884. I had to place my bid in Candain dollars to avoid confusion at the auction. I tried to steal it and the other guy ended up stealing it. Meant as getting it at a bargin price.
