UPDATE: Another WINNING bidder, the one mentioned below that did not receive their winning item, they were refunded but was still also required to scan in their driver’s license.
iPennyBid is the first and only penny auction site that we have heard of to require a scan of a photo ID.

I was doing a search on how to pay for items won on ipennybid as I won something on there today (and their site is UNBELIVABLY SLOW) â€“ have to say I was shocked to see my username printed on your â€œare these people real listâ€ several times â€“ I can assure you I am real 😮 ) â€“ I won the item in question â€“ an item you doubted their price â€“ Im in Australia and that item retails new for $419 which is actually more than they stated. At the end of the auction I started to wonder if I was competing with a shill bidder or bot as that person was then bidding with bid buddy for another item immeditatly after the auction I was bidding on finished. I emailed ipennybid today as I cant see how to pay for the item I won â€“ there literally is no place to pay! They have a section for won items and its there but status is blank and there is no click here to pay link â€“ Im just glad I bought my bids through Paypal â€“ in the past when things go wrong online I have got my money back (mostly with ebay purchases) but also one other time off ebay I always use Paypal when the option is there for this reason â€“ so will let you know if you like if things turn out or how they turn out!

Hi .. Yes and No .. There was a screw up but it wasn’t on the end of iPennyBid they bought an itouch from an Australian site – they paid full price (just over $400 AUD) the site had the item on back order but this wasn’t clear on the site – the Autralian site couldn’t get it in so iPennyBid approved a full refund to me – I got the money instead so I’m happy with them – they followed through with everything!
Yes iPennybid does have an Australian site www.au.ipennybid.com.
From iPennyBid’s FAQs:
Q. Am I only bidding against people in my own country?
A. At present and in order to keep the auction exciting and to prevent us pausing auctions we merge all bidders intoÂ all auctions. This means a user in the United States has the potential to bid against a user in Australia.)
Q. How much do you charge for shipping?
A. If you live in Australia, Canada,Â New Zealand, South Africa,Â United Kingdom orÂ United States then shipping is completely FREE!. If you live in a different country, we may add a surcharge ($50Â USD or below)Â on to your delivery.
