Place A Bid
How Bidding Works
If you place a bid, it has to be more than the existing highest bid by the stated increment and has to be in round currency units, eg in the UK it has to be in round pounds with no pennies.
A bid is a contractual arrangement to buy the lot at that price, if it is not superseded by a higher bid. Hence your bid cannot be altered or withdrawn and if it succeeds you will have to pay for the lot.
We immediately email all bidders of your new highest bid and if they in turn make a higher offer we will email you. You should not rely absolutely on these emails which can sometimes get lost in transit, so we provide a control panel for you to monitor things more accurately.
Many lots will have a reserve price which you will never see. However if your bid is the highest but is still below the reserve it will be shown in your control panel as such, so you have a chance to increase your bid.

You need to use your Bidder's control panel, or if you don't have one, set one up. To do this, please go to our Bidders log in page
