How do I bid?
Once you have registered on WaterBid, you can choose to bid on whichever lot(s) you are interested in. You are bidding on the whole lot, for example 5ML of Macalister Irrigation District water shares with allocation.
The amount you bid is for the whole lot, and not a per megalitre price. E.g. If you are bidding $5,000 on a 5ML lot, you are not paying $5,000 per megalitre. You are paying $5,000 for the total lot of 5ML (so $1,000 per ML).
You can check the current highest bid and make a bid above that amount if there is still time left in the auction.
Is there a reserve price?
In some cases a reserve price may apply to an auction.
