Hey all, after 30 days of beta testing, tweeking, and beautifying, the time is finally here. Bidzang.com opens its doors to live bidders starting today. First auction to end on April 29 at 7:25PM EST.

Come and check us out and see what items we are offering. All auctions will be loaded by this evening.

We will definately feature an Ipad 2 and PS3 sports pak w/ move bundle on Friday night, with some bid packs, gift cards, and smaller HOT items:

You will receive 10 free bids for registering and 10% free bids on your first bid pack purchase.


To our existing members who joined us during beta testing (thank you for your support), the new template and server have been loaded and the site looks and functions great. We have also updated the bid butlers and auction timers for a better experience. All test bids have been removed and user accounts have been updated.

All bids placed now will be "LIVE"

Happy Bidzanging!

Team Bidzang!

I was updating all accounts today, from beta to live. I will take a look at it, you should have 10 register + 5 Beta testing. If it was not there, I apologize, it's done now.

P.S. We are ready to go, thanks for the help early!

I am so sorry to those of you who saw my screename pop up on auction 5890 Free to Bid 50 Pid Pack Auction. It was an error on my side, and I will refund the winner of the auction .65 of the purchase price. I have no bids loaded in my account, but this auction is Free to Bid so won't happen again. Sorry all!

you are saying that you had an overload of traffic after the walmart gift card, but i didn't see any lag from your site, i was navigating the whole time over different items and i won the camera and the eton fare and square...

Are win limits not in place?. I have seen a few bidders who have won 2 times today (the daily limit) but are still bidding on items.

I am going by the win limits set forth in the help section of bidzang

Does Bidzang.com have win limits?

Yes, win limits are set as follows, all limits will reset after 30 days.
Bid Package Auctions that are free to bid have no win limits, as long as there are no more than two unpaid bid pack auctions in your account.
The current win limits at Bidzang.com generally are:

Green ($.01 - $49)12
Bronze ($50-$159)6
Gold ($160 - $299)4
Platinum ($300 - $599)2
Diamond ($600 +)1

All auctions that were ending from 7:51 PM EST to 9:20 were actually cancelled and bids were refunded. The server was down for nearly 2 hours last night starting at 7:45 and back up at 9:25. We are 100% positive that the site was down as we were upgrading to a new server during this time. Even if you were somehow able to view the page, it is technically not a fair auction, as it seems no one else, including myself, were able to access the site until 9:20 when we reactivated our software license on the new server. All bids were refunded, I do apologize but you will definitely have a chance to get the same sort of deals, as everything on the site is going for very low prices right now. Hope you guys are enjoying!

Looks very fishy. Bidders on different auctions bidding at the exact same time, exactly at 5 seconds. Bidpacks ( Free to bid ) going 15 dollars over what they cost? Was the Ipad cancelled that went for $1.11?
