  • When finished, please click 'Save'.

The auction house needs certain basic information, i.e. your address, in order to invoice objects you bought at an auction.
Before bidding at a live auction, this information has to be provided. Otherwise the auction house won't be able to authorise you for an auction.
You can edit your profile data any time.

Step 3: Accept Terms & Conditions

Please accept the Terms & Conditions of the auction house.

  • Therefore, please go to 'Auctions' and 'Live Auctions' in the menu.
  • Here you can have a look at the auction house's Terms & Conditions in the paragraph "activation".
  • Please click 'Accept' beneath the Terms & Conditions in order to consent to them.

Every auction house has its own Terms & Conditions, which every bidder has to accept before taking part in an auction. They have to be consented to online in order to be activated for a live auction.

Step 4: Request activation for a live auction

Please ask for the activation of your account in due time for the auction. In case the activation is requested shortly before the auction, it might be possible that the auction house won't be able to process your request in time!

  • Please go to "Auctions" and then to "Live auction" in the menu.
  • Please click the button 'Request access' in the paragraph 'Activation'. The field will change its colour to yellow and your request will be directly forwarded to the auction house.
  • As soon as the auction house activates your account, you'll be informed by email and the !Activation' field under 'Auctions' and 'Live auctions' will have become green,

Congratulations! You can bid in the live auction, as soon as the auction house has activated your account.

Some auction houses will admit every registered user to bid in a live auction. The majority of auction houses will check every user individually before the auction, activating them when requested,
The auction house will check if the user has paid the invoices reliably or whether the user has any negative records in his/her customer history.
