FAQ’s



Who do I contact with questions regarding an auction or item?

Each auction on K-BID.com is managed by a member of our independent affiliate network. Each auction has a different location, terms and contact information. This information can be found within each auction and item page and should be verified prior to bidding.


Forgot password, or having trouble logging in?

Why has my account been disabled?

K-BID reserves the right to remove bidding privileges for any user violating K-BID site terms or auction specific terms.


If your bidding has been disabled, it is most often due to an unpaid invoice. If you discover your bidding privileges have been suspended, please:

  • Check the Your Invoices section of your dashboard.
  • If an invoice has been marked as No-Show, contact the affiliate to make arrangements to pay the invoice and take possession of the assets.
  • If the items are no longer available, it may be possible to have your bidding privileges reinstated after paying a reinstatement fee. Please inquire about this possibility by filling out the form below.

K-BID's policy on bidder reinstatement due to unpaid invoices:

In the event that bidding rights are terminated due to no-show invoices, bidders MAY be reinstated at the discretion of K-BID only after a penalty fee of $25.00 plus 20% of the unpaid invoice(s) has been paid to K-BID and a scanned copy of your driver's license emailed to us. INVOICED ITEMS WILL NOT BE AWARDED. The payment is punitive and meant to deter no-shows.

Prompt payment during the scheduled removal days and complying with auction terms and conditions is required to remain an active user on K-BID.com. If you believe that your bidding has been disabled in error, please contact us using the form below.

Can I remove or retract a bid?

We do not remove bids. In certain cases we may be able to siphon down a max bid for you. Please contact us using the form below and we will determine if the max bid can be removed. Make sure to provide your bidder number, the auction name, item number or URL so we can assist you as soon as possible.

It is extremely important that you verify bids prior to placing them.
