Buyers will recieve an invoice this afternoon and have five working days to settle their accounts.
- Make sure you’re registered and your account is set up properly, well before the auction is set to close.
- If you are bidding from the listing page or your shortlist and are outbid, you must type in the next bid amount. The site does not automatically update the next bid amount.
- Each auction will auto-extend by adding extra time on if a bid is placed in the final 30 seconds. This will happen indefinitely until no further bids are placed and will also add more time onto each of the subsequent Lots. Please note, there is no benefit in last second bidding as the site will only extend the auction for longer. Bidders are encouraged to get their bids on early.
- Use auto-bids to take the stress out of the final countdown and use the refresh button to make sure your page is keeping up with the live auction.
