How does online bidding work?
Through auctionking.com, you can enjoy the excitement of bidding in live auctions from the comfort of your home. You can place an absentee bid before the auction begins, allowing you to get in on the action ahead of live bidding that takes place once the auction kicks off. Once a Live auction begins, you can gain access to an online bidding console so that you can follow and participate in the auction in real time.
Are there fees for bidding online?
Creating an account is free. Please note that you will be responsible for fees for items won in auctions that you have participated in. We charge a buyer's premium (which is an additional fee that a winning bidder is required to pay above the auction price) as well as other shipping, handling, and other fees including applicable taxes, if any.
