Click on the 'Show Automatic bids' and it will show how it ended up they way it did. Basically 1***1 had bid 15 euro earlier than the other bidder but it only increases the bid once a new one comes in. If something is listed at say €1 you can bid €10 and it will still only put you in for €1 until some places another bid, it will keep automatically bidding for you up to your max bid and if your max bid is the same as someone else its down to who bid first that wins!

No because 1***1 had bid earlier and seems like y**u bid same amount so the earlier bid wins. As mentioned above usually good practice to bid something like €15.07 or whatever (slightly more than the round figure) as that way less likely you'll get an exact match with another bidder. If in this case y**u have even bid 15.01 they would have won.

If two equal bids arrive, and they are both for the winning value, then the first one takes precedence - hence the suggestion about bidding a little over round figures.

 

Otherwise, to take an extreme example, somebody could have bid €15 two weeks ago and would be out-bid by somebody bidding the same amount today.
