What is a reserve price?

A reserve price is the lowest amount a seller is willing to accept for an item. If an auction closes below the reserve price, neither buyer nor seller is required to complete the purchase. The reserve price is typically higher than the starting price of an auction. BidCorp will not disclose the reserve price to buyers at any time.
