This what the help message says:
Okay, what are Proxy or MaxBids?
There are several systems of "proxy" bids; i.e. the system bidding for you
automatically. The system is called "MaxBid." Think of 'Max' as someone who
stays and watches the auction 24 hours a day while you're off doing more
interesting stuff. You activate 'Max' by entering the highest amount you are willing to
pay for an item into the "place bid" box. The system will then bid for you,
bidding only enough to make you the high bidder. If someone tops that bid, good
old 'Max' places another bid for you and so on up to the maximum amount
you've specified. Under no circumstances will 'Max' ever bid MORE than you said.
But the system will send you e-mail about an outbid and you can give 'Max' a few
more bucks to play with, if you like. Just enter another bid amount.
