LiveAuctioneers brings an international audience of millions to the heart of the bidding action in art, antiques, jewelry and collectibles auctions across the globe.
With fascinating objects up for bid in 47 countries—instantly translated to your language and currency—LiveAuctioneers is a worldwide marketplace with treasures waiting to be discovered, whether you're an avid collector or a first-time visitor.
By hosting thousands of auctions in real time via the Internet, the site allows unprecedented access to remote sales, and savvy bidders can often land desired items at very desirable prices. Leave an absentee bid, or fully engage in the auction action—it's up to you. All bidding takes place via the Secure Bidder Network (SBN), which keeps absentee bids for upcoming sales private until the item is opened on the day of the sale.
LiveAuctioneers revolutionized the industry from the start. In 2002, the NYC-based company formed a marketing partnership with eBay to introduce eBay Live Auctions. This alliance of LiveAuctioneers and eBay enabled auction houses worldwide to go online with their live sales — a development that changed the auction business forever. In 2009, the debut of LiveAuctioneers' iPhone and Android apps, with live-bidding capabilities, opened up a new mobile pipeline to bid anytime, from anywhere, with complete anonymity.
Now in its 14th year, LiveAuctioneers has become the Web's leading auction-related site. LiveAuctioneers also provides a constant stream of industry intelligence via:
