    They say they will not charge until the bid is actually accepted. Likely the charge seen is a pending auth to ensure the card is real and money is there. Will likely fall off in a day or so.

    I placed two bids too! And both times got the same 2 emails sent to me, I gave my American express card, and I have not been charged yet.

    Again it makes no sense to confirm or decline bids at this stage... I think next week will be much more active.

    Does your card show it as "pending" or and actual charge that went through? And order status has shown "authorizing" for all 4 days?

    If they are just collecting bids then this is pretty bad way of doing it. Should just have a set up to let people know in a timely manor if they have been out bid so they can either up the bid or shop for another watch elsewhere.

    Have not called Amex on the status. But there is either a hold or actual transaction for them coz I received sms alerts from Amex for the amount.

    It's not clear coz from the second email, it says 'your order has been accepted'.

    I agree. Its not great to hold people off for so much time.

    FWIW I did not have any statement in my email that said "your order has been accepted" so I would guess that if you had that response, your bid was accepted...

    "I made bids for 2 models. For both of them, got 2 emails each :
    1) Thank you for submitting your bid on.BALL MyOffer.We're in the process of assessing your bid and we will email you soon with the result..
    At this stage your credit card has not been charged. Only successful bids are with engagement.
    2) ************************************************** **********
    * Your order has been accepted.
    ************************************************** **********
    Please retain this receipt for your records.
    This e-mail confirms your order placed with.shop.ballwatch.ch."


    I am not sure what the confusion is here--they accepted your bid(s)--"--2) Your order has been accepted" seems rather straightforward, and that they are in the process of putting your credit card through the hoops, the end result of which will be two charges for two watches--how can it be interpreted otherwise?

    Hope so. But something tells me I should not be so optimistic coz I bid less than 10 percent of (not off) RRP for one of the models.
