Unmasking Bid Shelling and Bid Shielding: EzeAd's Vigilance Against Unfair Practices


Recommended Posts

In the world of online auctions and marketplaces, fair and transparent trading is crucial for building trust among buyers and sellers. Unfortunately, some unscrupulous individuals engage in deceptive tactics like bid shelling and bid shielding, which can undermine the integrity of the trading process. In this blog, we shed light on these harmful practices and highlight EzeAd's unwavering commitment to preventing bid shelling and bid shielding.

Understanding Bid Shelling and Bid Shielding 

1. Bid Shelling: Bid shelling occurs when a seller, or someone colluding with the seller, places false bids on their own items to artificially inflate the price. This deceitful tactic deceives genuine buyers and disrupts the competitive bidding process, leading to unfair outcomes.

2. Bid Shielding: On the other hand, bid shielding is when a dishonest buyer colludes with others to place low bids on an item to prevent genuine buyers from winning. The aim is to decrease the final price of the item, allowing the colluding buyer to purchase it at a significantly reduced cost.
