visit-wellbidWellBid is a fairly new penny auction website which has taken the industry by storm launching auctions in over 8 countries. Wellbid seems to keep a consistent flow of new penny auctions throughout the day. What’s most unique about this penny auction is the ability for winners to get cash credit for penny auction wins. That’s right, WellBid will deposit the value of the won item into your PayPal account.

Is WellBid a Scam?

We have not read too many accounts of bad experiences on WellBid.

WellBid Pros and Cons

  • WellBid Pros: Lots of auctions
  • WellBid Cons: We caution bidders to look out for the fact that not all WellBid auctions use 1 bid per click. We think that this is a little strange and can be confusing. Look for the Bid X button (shown below) on each auction page.

Wellbid Buy It Now Is FRAUD!

Wellbid also claim that you can 'Buy It Now' at a much higher supposed RRP, within 24 hours of the auction ending and get all of your bids placed back. This is a total lie and when you complain, you are ignored or told that the issue has gone to their 'technical department' and to expect an answer, which after a week still hasn't arrived! Leave well alone.
