When building an auction, consider the following rules of thumb for bid change decrements: For items greater than $1MM, use .25% as a guideline; For items greater than $100K, use .50% as a guideline; For items under 100K, use 1.0% as a guideline. Note: decrement can be either nominal values or percentage values. Either way, the above percentages can help you to arrive at a sound value.
