How to submit a Maximum Proxy Bid Active (#3773873)
If you cannot be online at the auction closing time or are having internet difficulties we strongly recommend buyers submit a Maximum Bid at a price you believe could win the lot at auction. Once you have submitted a “Maximum Bid” the system will bid for you against any other bidder up to the maximum proxy amount you have submitted. A Maximum bid is not a guarantee you will be the successful bidder.
To place a "Maximum Proxy Bid" enter the maximum amount you are prepared to bid to in the "Amount Field Box" (see #1 in example image) and then select the "Submit Max Bid" button (see #2 in example image).
Buyers premium will be added to the maximum bid amount you submitted.
Doing this enables you to compete for the Lot without having to be online at the time of the sale. Please be mindful of submitting bids during the "Closing" time of the auction, at this point there is only FIVE (5) SECONDS left and the auction may close while you are submitting a bid.
Once you have submitted a “Maximum Bid” the system will bid for you against any other bidder up to the maximum/proxy amount you have submitted. Once the bidding is above your maximum/proxy figure you will be out of contention and you will need to enter another bid to compete for the Lot.
A Maximum bid is not a guarantee you will be the successful bidder.
