So when you see an item that has sold for $5.00, that's five hundred
placed on that item. Remember, each bid increases the price by a penny
15 seconds to the clock. So if Bidknox.com has a Silver Bullion Bar
we paid $300.00 for, and it sells for $5.00 (500 $1 bids), that's $500
has made to pay for the Silver Bullion Bar 10oz. Let's do some examples-
1) A GoldGram 1 Gram Ingot that retails for $75.00, sells for $3.12,
profit has Bidknox made on this item?
312 Bids x $1 = $312.00 minus $75.00 = $237.00 profit
2) A American Eagle Gold 1oz Coin that retails for $1600.00 sells for $6.84
Bidknox, how much money has Bidknox made/lost on the item?
684 bids x $1 each = $684.00 dollars minus $1600.00 equals $916.00 loss
3) A Silver Bullion 1oz Bar that retails for $30.00 sells for $.43
Bidknox, how much money has Bidknox made/lost?
43 bids x $1 = $43.00 minus $30.00 = $13.00 in profit
