Auto-Bidding is where the system bids on your behalf when a property comes up that meets your preferences. Auto-Bidding is useful if you can't bid on your own behalf. However, by getting the system to bid on your behalf, you reduce the choice you have in which properties you bid for. Auto-bidders have three bids like all other applicants, so if more then three properties that meet your preference come up you will not be able to allocate your three bids. Auto-bidders can always log in and remove bids on properties they don't want, however if those bids are not reallocated to a new property the system will bid again to ensure all bids are used. This may be on the property from which you removed the bid. To permanently remove the bid, the applicant can remove the bid on the day that the property's advert is closing. The bidding cycles close on a Wednesday, please see the bidding cycle timetable.
