    As a result of your feedback we are reintroducing our Hidden Bid feature.

    The Drop.com.au auction platform now hides all bids until more than one bidder is involved in that domain auction.

    This has been designed to provide a more even playing field to our customers, by
    a) deterring snipe bidding, and
    b) alleviating concerns that bidders may have regarding "early" bidding and the subsequent potential to highlight domains to their competitors.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I liked other people bidding first. Saved me trawling through the list.

    Indeed Shaun.

    Looks like a popular feature too. 40 domains caught on Drop today!

    Cheers

    Can you show how many bidders are bidding the same way that netfleet does?

    Yes - Click on the hammer icon to the left of the domain name and you get the complete bid history for that domain.
