Tips and tricks for a better experience


Get the news in real time to act quickly!

During intense competition on lots such as the buy it now option. The reaction time is critical for the win. Most browsers like Chrome or Explore keep track of the pages you visit for a faster experience. But this has the effect of not seeing in real time the changing content on the site, a new button for example.

The best way around this problem is with the Google Chrome browser. It offers an extension that disables this function.

Here is how to get it: Install Google Chrome if you don’t already have it.


Then install the application called ‘’cache killer’’


Then just click ' on ' in the right corner before going on the site.


Once activated, you will have the latest version of every page you visit when refreshed. For example, if the lots are active or immediate purchase button becomes available, you can view them immediately. Of course the power of your computer and your connection quality factors remain for cases where actions are judged by the second!



Over 500 lots for the 26th and 27th of January 201
