Synonyms of "Bid" and their differences

Her attempt for re-election ...

The other usage for "bid" comes when dealing with money in a competitive way. It is an offer of a price, especially at an auction.

"While I can offer $1000 for the painting at the auction, I bid $500. I can only hope no one else wants it as much as I do."

From here we can get the noun form of bid, which is "bidder".

"I'm sorry but your bid of $500 was just beaten by $200. My bid for that painting is $700. Have anything else to offer? If not, then, I am the highest bidder."

The highest bidder wins the painting from the auction.

A bidder is a person that "bids" money on something that is being sold in a competitive platform.

It all comes down to making sure you are using the word "bid" the way you intend to.

I hope this helps!
