You will be asked to enter your email address and choose a user name and password (user names must not contain offensive terms and must be 7 characters in length and include both alpha and numeric characters). We also ask you to choose a security question and answer that question. You will use them to retrieve your password in case you forget yours. You must also check the box indicating that you have read the terms and conditions of the site and certify that you are at least 18 years old.
If you forget your username or password, click on the forgot password link during login and follow the steps. An email will be sent to you with this information.
Unfortunately, your user name cannot be changed. When registering, please be careful not to select a user name that is offensive or abuses the rights of others.
BuyHatke.com limits users to one account each. You must use a valid personal email address to register.
Amount equal to the current bidding amount plus 1 paise will get deducted from your hatke credits each time you place a bid.
Find an item you want and click the "BID Now" button. Once your bid is placed, you are now in the drivers seat and your username will be displayed as the "Top Bidder".
But remember, bid quickly before the timer reaches zero. If the timer expires before another bid is placed, that item will be sold to the "Top Bidder".
All BuyHatke’s timed auctions run on a "countdown sequence". The countdown timer is displayed below the auction image. Each time a bid is placed, the timer resets to the original auction time and begins counting down towards zero. As the countdown sequence progresses to zero it will display a large 3,2,1 selling, sold. If no additional bids are placed before the item says sold then you may purchase the item.
Note : Inherent latencies in the communication between your computer and our servers exist for many reasons, including the speed of your internet connection. Bid acceptance delays and/or halo-timer inconsistencies, although rare, can occur. Placing a bid with only 1 second remaining on a timer is not recommended, as it may not have time to register before the auction has ended.
Once you have placed your bid, and your user name is displayed as the "Current Bidder", hang on and watch the countdown. If no one else places a bid before the countdown reaches zero, the auction will say sold. Congratulations!!! The item will now be added to your shopping cart allowing you to checkout. Just follow the link and purchase your item at the winning price.”
You must check out within 7 days of completion of the auction. Any unclaimed item in your cart that has not been paid for within 7 days may be forfeited.
Each user is limited to 2 successful auctions per week.
The minimum cost for a bid can be as low as few paise for the initial few bids. The cost for the bid increases as the auction proceeds. When you win an auction, you will pay the “item sold” price listed on the auction in addition to what you have spent on bidding for that item.
