When Does an eBidder Activation Credit Get Used?

An eBidder activation credit is used when a bidder clicks a "Bid Now" or "Buy Now" button for the first time, thereby indicating his intention to bid or purchase.

Note that the bidder may choose to not follow through with bidding or purchasing after clicking the button and consuming the credit. In any case, the bidder is now activated and may bid/puchase in the future without consuming additional eBidder activation credits.

Simply creating an account, logging in, or browsing items in the eCatalog do not cause an eBidder activation credit to be used.
