Jack Nitz & Associates uses the power of Proxibid for Timed Auctions and Live Auctions.
Buyers place bids during the event and the highest bidder at a specified closing date and time wins the item. If a user places a bid in the closing minutes of an auction the Proxibid system automatically extends the bidding time frame, ensuring that the buyer willing to bid the highest always wins.
· Bidding has a start and end date/time.
· Bidding may close all at the same time or lot-by-lot in equally spaced intervals
· All bids are submitted online.
Live auctions are physical auctions conducted at an onsite location with or without an onsite audience.
Proxibid’s online platform, Proxibid LIVE!, makes it possible for bidders to participate in real-time, competing against onsite and other online buyers. A real, live person operates the software and provides a constant stream of communication to online bidders. Buyers can ask questions about individual items or the auction itself. Live audio and video of the auction is available to online bidders when sellers choose to use this function.
Buyers can bid in different ways—on site, over the phone or online. Typical auctions on Proxibid use the ascending bid method, also known as an English auction. This method requires participation of a minimum of two bidders. The auctioneer calls for an opening price and buyers bid competitively in succession, raising bids usually by equal increments. The auction is over when no new bids are raised and the auctioneer calls “sold” or drops the hammer.
When an event or individual item is available for live bidding, you will see the “ENTER LIVE AUCTION” button. To place a live bid you must be logged in with a full account profile.
