How the online auction process works:
- Find the auction you wish to register for, and click on the Register tab for that auction. If you are new to Proxibid, you will need to Create an Account. This is the first step of the four step registration process.
- Once registered online for an auction, you will be sent a confirmation email. Each online auction is unique in the Terms and Conditions of the sale, so you need to agree to these. (Some auctions has different preview times, different payment terms, buyers premiums, etc.)
- You will be able to login and leave prebids prior to the auction or bid live once the auction begins.
- When you submit a live bid, that bid is relayed to a Bid Assistant on the floor or directly to the Auctioneer as if you were at the auction. If you are the successful bidder, you will receive an invoice after the auction is over.
Example how Prebids work: If you leave a $500 bid on an item, the bidding WILL NOT start at $500. Instead, the bidding generally starts on the floor, with live, on-site bids. The Bid Assistant monitoring the online bidding will bid on your behalf up to your $500 prebid. The Bid Assistant will bid for you just like you are at the auction. If the competitive bidding stops at $400, you will pay $400 for the item, even though the prebid price was more. Placing a prebid eliminates the problems that can occur due to internet connectivity issues. Prebids will be executed whether you are watching the auction or not.

Here are some simple tips to improving your online experience:
Register in advance!! Don’t wait until the morning of the auction! This insures that you will get registered and be ready to bid. We recommend registering at least 48 hours prior to the auction, allowing you time to get any questions answered you might have.
Bid early, don’t wait to last minute!! By bidding early the Auctioneer will be aware of your interest in the item. Don’t wait until the last minute to try and bid, you might be too late!!
