Our mission is to create and maintain an authentic real-time social bidding platform for people who want to shop and enjoy friendly, honest competition.
How do we accomplish this?
By adding a revolutionary and patented prefunding component to an existing and broken pay-to-bid method. Utilizing our Patented and Copyright protected technology, Exhibia adds unprecedented transparency to an industry mired in questionable practices. Pre-funding = Buying bids towards an item which then grants insights into consumer interests as a residual as well as eliminates the needs for “bots” or “shills” on our bidding website.
How does it work?
So every Exhibia ® retail item goes through 2 phases:
1. Funding Phase
2. Bidding Phase
Once an item is 100% funded it is opened for bidding.
How do I get bids?
You can get bids by funding items. You can bid on any item that is already opened for bidding.
- $10 Get 10bids No Bonus
- $20 Get 21bids 5% Bonus
- $50 Get 55bids 10% Bonus
- $100 Get 115bids 15% Bonus
- $500 Get 600bids 20% Bonus
How can I be sure I am not outbid by a bot?
Every item needs to be 100% funded before the bidding is started. Since the house site has already covered the cost of the item because of prefunding and our secured wholesale channels, the need for ever using bots to cover costs is entirely eliminated.
How can I register to become a bidder?
In order to maintain the integrity of our revolutionary verification process with our Facebook and Google partners, we will initially only allow registered Facebook & Google users to bid. We plan to open up to other social networks in the near future as our enterprise continues on its targeted path of growth and inclusion.
Going, Going, Gone? Timer Extensions?
Exhibia follows the original auctioneer format of “going,” “going,” “gone” or “going once”, “going twice”, “sold principle.”
What are timer extensions and why do they occur? In order to “level the playing field” and in the “spirit of fairness,” we grant timer extensions to offset fluctuating volume on the site in the beta test mode. During beta there is a hidden bid reserve that needs to be fulfilled for the Winner to be declared. Exhibia was designed to be a global phenomenon whose preliminary beta tests determined the removal of timer extensions once we have launched the eventual volume.
Trade-Off My WIN To Cash Transfer?
Exhibia is willing to trade most WINS into another item of cash transfer equivalent of %70 to -%50 of the cost of the item. Contact customer service to ask for Trade-Off value for your win. Trade-off value depends on the inventory levels and exhibia retains the right to not trade-off.
What if I lose the bidding?
Exhibia is proud to be an Amazon Market Place Retailer and most items will have a “Buy-It-Now” option that will let you make a purchase for MSRP (often less) and get your used bids back from the corresponding auction.
