English term or phrase: User can not make an off-increment bid on this lot
There is no further context for this string, I am afraid. I am confused about the term "off-increment".

Hola, Mercedes:

En unos minutos, incluiré algunas definiciones, enlaces y ejemplos en las notas.

Note added at 1 day 3 hrs (2018-05-23 18:23:24 GMT)

Según el sitio que consultes, encontrarás dos definiciones distintas. La primera indica que las off increment bids son ofertas diferentes del incremento de puja. La segunda explica que estas son las ofertas inferiores al incremento de puja. A continuación incluyo algunas definiciones y explicaciones sobre increment bids en las que también se habla de off increment bids:

BID INCREMENTS are standard increments that the auctioneer will use to request competing bids at a given range of dollar value. It is important to be familiar with these increments to follow along with the sale live or when leaving an absentee bid, so as not to leave an off-increment bid”. Fuente:

In order to be processed, bids need to be submitted at the correct bid increment. If you submit an off-increment bid, you will receive a message stating the bid has been rounded down ”. Fuente:

The bid increment is the amount by which the current high bid is raised each time someone places a higher bid”. Fuente:

“El incremento de puja es el importe por el cual se eleva una puja cada vez que se supera la puja actual. Se predetermina en función de la puja actual más alta”. Fuente:

On live auctions, bids can only be increased by a set amount. This is called the bid increment, and it's set by the auction house holding the event. In a live auction event, all bids must be on-increment.

For example, if an item has a current bid of $3,000 and the bid increment is $250, the next bid must be $3,250, then $3,500 (or more, as long as it's on-increment). You can't bid $3,342 since this amount is off-increment
”. Fuente:

Please note that an off-increment bid may be placed, providing that it is above the next minimum bid (the next full increment). For example, on a lot with a current bid of £200 an off-increment bid of £210 would not be acceptable as it does not meet the minimum next full increment. However an off-increment bid of £225 would be acceptable as it does exceed the minimum next full increment ”. Fuente:

Aquí dejo tres oraciones de ejemplo para tramo de puja e incremento de puja:

“El tramo de puja determinado por Alcopa Auction es de 100 € IVA incluido”. Fuente:

“A tal fin, cada subasta tendrá asignado un cuadro de tramos de pujas numerados”. Fuente:

“Catawiki introdujo los incrementos de puja para garantizar que todas las pujas competidoras sean aceptables y significativas, de forma que no pierdas una lote de alto valor por 1 € de diferencia. Sin embargo, se permiten incrementos superiores a los sugeridos”. Fuente:

Teniendo en cuenta todo esto, creo que estas serían algunas traducciones posibles para la oración de tu consulta. Todo dependerá del contexto y de la definición que se elija:

1. Para ofertar en este lote, el usuario debe respetar el tramo de puja.
2. El usuario no puede realizar ofertas que no respeten el tramo de puja en este lote.
3. En este lote, el usuario no puede pujar por una cantidad menor al incremento de puja.
4. En este lote, el usuario no puede pujar por una cantidad diferente del incremento de puja.
