What to keep in mind as a Catawiki seller
– When your auction lot is sold, you have to send it to the buyer. It is just like a regular auction, sometimes an auction lot will not fetch the amount you are looking for. On the other hand, when there are more bidders they might try to outbid each other and the auction lot will sell for a high price. For items of higher value it is possible to put a reserve price on it, information about this can be found when you register as a seller and place your first auction lot.
– Because it is an online auction, buyers can’t touch and feel the item you are selling. To attract more buyers good photos are necessary, with all the details on it. Also a good description of the item is a must, like dimensions and background information.
– To create an account and put up lots for auction is free, you pay a commission fee for the sold objects.
What to keep in mind as a Catawiki buyer
– Creating a Catawiki account to start bidding is free, once you win an auction you are obliged to pay for it.
– Auction lots are checked by experts but even for them it is sometimes hard to see if the description matches the object. Always be careful what you buy, ask the seller for more information or photos and when you don’t trust something, don’t buy it!
– Interesting auction lots can be found in different categories, sometimes in one of the more general categories. Make sure to use the search function to look for all the things you are interested in.
– When you have the highest bid, you also pay a buyers commission.
– The sellers of the Catawiki auctions can be found worldwide and shipment might be expensive, especially for large and heavy items. Always look for the shipment costs to the place where you live. Sometimes it is not possible to ship an item, make sure you can go there to pick it up.
