Bidz.com Pros and Cons
We definitely like the free bid model of Bidz.com and the fact that some jewelry auctions end pretty low. However, Bidz mostly offers jewelry auctions which makes it less appealing and we don’t see the deals that we do on some penny auctions. Overall, Bidz.com is worth a try.
Bidz.com is not a penny auction. While Bidz.com promotes huge savings similar to that of penny auctions, bidders are not required to pay for bids on this auction website. The end user only pays the final auction closing price plus an shipping costs (if there are any on that particular item).

I won a bid and paid for it the beginning of January 2018 with a delivery date given of 5-7 working days. It is now the end of February 2018 and jewelry has not been delivered and still showing as "open" in the system. Tried to cancel my order but customer service keeps saying it will be shipped out. Emailed Ebidz customer service with no response. I am now filing a complaint with my Visa credit card company to try and get my money back as no merchandise has been shipped. THIS COMPANY IS STEALING MONEY AND NO ONE IS STOPPING THEM.
