HOW DOES THIS AFFECT COMMISSION BIDS?
Commission Bids are aligned with our bidding increments so should you enter a Commission Bid that is not a valid bidding increment for that lot it will automatically be reduced to the closest bidding increment.
A lot currently has a bid of R 2000, you are prepared to go to R 2500 so you enter a Commission Bid of R 2500. However, according to the table, R 2500 is not a valid bidding increment so your Commission Bid will automatically be reduced to R 2400.
