How you can buy an iPhone 6s or MacBook for just GH¢4.80 on BeBids

"It's a scam" Something that newbies usually say when they first hear about bebids. Of course I had my doubts too. I mean, who on earth sells an iPhone 6s or Samsung Galaxy s6 for just ¢50 when their actual prices are ¢2600 and ¢3200 respectively . It just didn't make sense. But after checking out the site, I realized it was like the eBay auction service so I decided to give it a try. Setting up my account was very easy. Took less than 1minute. 

From my understanding, this is how the service works. First, you register and buy bids in order to join the auction. Bids are sold in bundles ie 25bids for ¢10, 120bids for ¢50 etc. Payment can be made with a credit/debit card, MTN mobile money, Tigo Cash or Airtel money. 

Secondly, you have to wait for the auction to start. Ideally, the auctions 

1) last for 2minutes, 10seconds creating a thrilling bidding experience. 
2) every new bid adds 15secs to the timer.
3) every new bid adds ¢0.10 to the cost of the device being auctioned.
4) The starting price of any device on sale is ¢0.00.

The best part of this service is they give you the choice to buy the device with your bids even if you don't win the auction.
