ZBiddy Best Features

Unique Products: ZBiddy features a few different products that don’t get regularly features on other major sites including magazine subscriptions, grocery coupons,  and travel vouchers.

ZWheel: The Zwheel is ZBiddy’s version of promotional bids where users spin to win free bids. Free bids are nominal (1-10 bids per spin) but they allow you to spin 1x daily, so there is an opportunity to rack ‘em up.

Buy It Now: Again, Buy It Now makes into top features. This feature is increasingly popular and with good reason – it helps to curb the risk involved with bidding. And ZBiddy takes it a step further, allowing you to use the Buy It feature on auctions even if you haven’t bid on the item. And if you do bid and decide you’d rather purchase, they’ll cover you there too. Every bid you place is added as a valued discount towards the purchase of your item.

ZBiddy Auctions

Free-to-bid: Unlike Beezid that requires a purchase, ZBiddy offers completely free-to-bid auctions from the outset. While the product ranges and savings aren’t as robust as number 1 ranked HappyBidDay, there are still plenty of wins to be had.

Penny Auction: ZBiddy’s standard penny auction model. Bids increase the price by $0.01 each, timer resets with each bid near the auction end, and the last person to place a bid by the time the timer counts to zero wins the item for the final auction price.

Nail Biter: These are real-time bidding auctions that prevent the use of EZ-Buddy, Zbiddy’s auto-bid software.

Beginner Auctions: Exactly what they sound like – auctions for new bidders. Once you win, you’ll be restricted from participation. We’d like to see ZBiddy expand this to a handful of wins, similar to HappyBidDay’s Starter Auctions, but it is a nice feature regardless.

Price Caps: Select auctions feature capped pricing, meaning no matter how many bids are placed, the auction will stay fixed at a preset capped price.

Buy It Now: Like we mentioned up top, at any point during the auction, you can choose to use your spent bids towards the retail price of the item and buy it. They also give you a snapshot of your bids from the auction window, so you always know how much your bids are worth towards your purchase. You can also use the option if you haven’t bid on the auction, which gives ZBiddy a slight e-commerce feel.

    Zbiddy was cool. I am not sure what the other users couldn’t see but the price was right on top of the place i put my payment info in. I didn’t understand the site when i signed up so I called the number on the page and a really nice girl helped me out. Then I tired it… I did exactly what she told me to do. I tried the beginner auctions first and it was an easy win. I won 10 Bids. Then I went for the $25 american express credit card. Tonight I think I am ready to go for the iPad 16 GB…

    Yep you can win several bid packages, but having a high number of bids does nothing.
    I had over 2000 bids and doing what their tutorials say, from coming in at odd times and wasted almost all of them. I went in at all hours of the day, and wasted bids on trying to win a BIG item.
    Using the auto bid does nothing but wasted bids.
    By the time the items are below 5 minutes there are dozens of people attacking and biding on the item.

    At times for some reason the item shift from one place to another, so if your click biding, suddenly, you have a bid on one of the junk items, and your the winner of a junk item.

    AND as a warning, their surprise Item, I won 3 of then and when they arrived, it was the same thing in all the same envelope.
    IT WAS a cheap plastic necklace.
    One of the necklaces did not have any sting, it was just a bunch of plastic charms.
    If I spent a couple hours, I could fond the same necklace for a dozen a dollar,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,\\\\\\\\\\\

      Had a similar result. DO NOT Bid on their Mystery items. No Value Junk, Garage sale costume jewelry at best. Customer service is about as poor as it gets. PS been waiting over 30 days for an IPod won, money processed but no product. I think their days are numbered.

    I was taken for over 100.00 without my consent and promised a 100.00 fuel rebate that I never received. Not happy. Scammers. A person works hard to earn a living then you scammers step in and just sweep it away. I wish I was that smart.

    I just joined and registered and was not impressed about them taking out $100 on my credit card not sure how I authorized this. Anyway I am in Canada and after winning bids I can’t get them shipped to my address. I have had long wait time on the live chat only to find out that they do ship to Canada and was told to phone the company, but guess what, there is no phone number for these people. So has anyone have any other ideas because if I don’t get an anwser soon I loose my bids and my wins.
