Domain names listed for sale by owner are sold through a traditional online 7-Day Public Auction. At the end of the auction, the domain name is awarded to the highest bidder (where the reserve price, if set, has been met or exceeded). To bid on a 7-Day Public Auction:
1. Log into Go Daddy Auctions® (use your Go Daddy account and password to log in).
2. Navigate through the categories or use the Advanced Search tool to find the domain name you want.
3. Click on the domain name or the Bid button to view the details screen.
4. Enter your bid. Bids must be in whole dollars, and must not be less than the Minimum Required Bid (the Asking Price).
Note: You may use our proxy bid service to enter the maximum amount you are willing to bid and Go Daddy Auctions® will bid on your behalf anytime you are outbid by another bidder.
5. Bidding continues for the duration of the auction, currently 7 days.
At the end of the auction, the winning bidder will be notified by email with instructions on how to complete the purchase. Bidders may also monitor the auction’s progress in their My Account area.

You’ve mentioned the proxy bid service, but still haven’t mentioned how to use it. I wouldn’t mind finding out either

Yes, I would also love to know how to use the proxy bidding service, I have looked but can’t find anywhere to set it up!

As indicated by @christianh you would only need to enter the maximum amount you are willing to bid on the auction domain name for our Proxy Bid service to bid for you.
For example, a current highest bid on a domain for $50 would now be showing you as the highest bid at $55 should the max amount you were willing to go be $100. Proxy biding will keep going up as additional bids are made up to your Max amount. After $100, no further bids are place unless you came in later to set a new Max amount.

after further review, yes it did

No, that is not the works, at least not currently. I have just increased a bid by $50 and it accepted the whole increase. It did not increase the bid in $5 steps.
Has this process changed since your reply 4 months ago?
chrisg said 9 months, 1 week ago:
There has been no change in the Proxy Bidding Service. If a bid placed for $50 immediately posted for the same amount, it would mean another bid was in place for nearly the same amount or higher.

where is exactly ‘PROXY BID’ option located???
I couldnt able to find it anywhere in godaddy website!!!
JasonP said 2 months, 2 weeks ago:
You can submit a starting bid and specify the maximum amount you want to bid for a domain name. Beginning with $5 more than the current bid amount, our Proxy Bidding Service automatically increases your bid by $5 each time you’re outbid until you reach your maximum bid amount.
Were you not able to do this?
