Bidding fever is right, IMHO.

I remember reading a report on ICONOCAST a few months ago about US online
auctions where quite often the products bought online ended up costing
significantly more than their usual high st. price. The conclusion was that it
was about more than just buying something online, it was about the thrill of
seeing if you could beat your competitors and win the prize.

Or something.
