    Hi Bobbie,

    I hate to say this but JotForm cannot be used to facilitate any sort of bidding system. I think what you wanted to implement is way too complex for JotForm's capability as a form builder.

    An online auction system would need to have access to previously submitted data to a form - something that is not possible with JotForm.

    Perhaps a 3rd party service, for example: Ebay, will be able to do this job for you.

    thanks, we do use ebay for most items but wanted to put a longer period of time it was open.

    we use Jotform for so many things was hoping it could do this too!
