Bidding

You must register and sign in to leave absentee bids through our catalogues. If you don’t have an account yet, you can easily register at My Pages services.

  

Absentee Bids

NB! Our absentee bidding policy has been changed. Previously, the sum was split in half if the first bidder placed a bid of 151 euros or more and was shown in full if the bid was 150 euros or less. This rule is now repealed and henceforth the first bid is shown as a minimum bid the auction allows. The raises are set according to a fixed raising table.

Example 1: first bid for an item in an auction that allows minimum bid of 35 euros
Customer places a bid of 200 euros. The catalogue shows the bid as 35 euros.

Example 2: several bids for an item in an auction that allows minimum bid of 35 euros
The highest existing bid is now 120 euros. Another customer leaves a bid of 200 euros. The catalogue shows the bid as 130 euros.

Your absentee bid is the maximum price you are willing to offer for the item, but you may win your item for much lower price.
