A SIMPLE STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON HOW TO BUY AT AUCTION WITH ARTHEMA AUCTION

 

1 REGISTER

ACCOUNT & Registration

To be able to register to our auction sales, you first have to create an account online.

In order to bid in Online Only sales, you must create an online account on www.auction.fr.

Your personal and bank details are required in order to allow you to bid. If you are already registered as a customer on www.auction.fr, you should log in by entering your username and password.

Your account is stricly personal and confidential: You are responsible for the management of your bids.

 

To consult your current bids, go to "My Account" then "My bids » on www.auction.fr

 

2 BID

In an Online auction you can choose to place your bids individually during the sale or to use our automatic bidding function, placing a maximum bid (as a purchase order).  In both cases the bid you submit is the maximum that you wish to pay (excluding taxes).

There are two ways to bid:  submit the starting/next bid or submit a maximum bid

 

BID DURING THE SALE

 

In an Online auction you can choose to place your bids individually during the sale 
The starting price (same as the reserve price) is indicated under the estimate.


Choose the amount you wish to bid and click on “To Bid”.

Bidding opens at a specified bid.
To simplify the bidding process, we uses predetermined bidding increments

 

Bidding increments :

 

€1 to €25 : by €1

€25 to €50 : by €5

€50 to €100 : by €10

€100 to €300 : by €20
€300 to €1000 : by €50
€1000 to €5000 : by €100
€5000 to €10 000 : by €200
€10 000 to €50 000 : by €500
€50 000 to €100 000 : by €1000
€100 000 to €500 000 : by €5000

 

In the event that two bidders submit an identical bid, the sale will always go to the person who submitted his bid first.

ABSENTEE / AUTOMATIC BID

You can also use our automatic bidding function, placing a maximum bid (as a purchase order). Then the system bids for you, submitting an auto bid if you are outbid. In both cases the bid you submit is the maximum that you wish to pay (excluding taxes).

Entering a maximum bid does not necessarily mean you will pay that price. You may pay less. As the auction proceeds, we compare your bid to those of other bidders and the system automatically bids on your behalf, up to but never exceeding your maximum bid. We increase your bid by increments only as much as necessary to maintain your position as highest bidder

 

Please note:

In the event that two bidders submit an identical bid, the sale will always go to the person who submitted his bid first.

 

 

Can I cancel Bid?

 

In online auction,you cannot cancel a bid once it has been submitted. You may, however, adjust your maximum bid while it is higher than the current standing bid.

Once a bid has been placed, it becomes binding. You are required to purchase any lot you win for the amount you've bid. By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms and Conditions.A countdown clock is displayed for each lot on the lot detail page.

 

When do lots close?

 

A countdown clock is displayed for each lot on the lot detail page. If a bid is placed within the final 5 minutes of the closing time of a lot, 5 additional minutes will be added to the designated closing time for that lot. Please note that the extension of one lot’s closing time does not affect other lots’ closing times; therefore it is possible that lots will close out of numerical lot order.
