You are in StampAuctionNetwork Agent Bidding

You have no bids or you have selected "show only open bids" and there are no more open lots for which you have bids. Select "Show All Bids" to see your bids for closed lots.
StampAuctionNetwork Agent Bidding These Bids will be entered for you by StampAuctionNetwork when the lot is opened.

Please note the following:

  • The auction firms will not see these bids until the lot is opened.
  • They will look identical to other live bids, except that your maximum bid amount will not be revealed.
  • You will get the benefit of your highest bid if there is a tie among other live bidders. In most cases, you will be the first bid in.
  • If your maximum bid is reached and beaten, and you are watching the live bidding, you can take over your bid. You will never have to worry about bidding against yourself.
  • During Live Bidding, you will also be able to place a Live SAN Agent Bid. This will be identical to a Live Bid, except the Auctioneer will not see your max bid. Currently the SAN console operator and the Auctioneer (if watching their monitor) can see everyone's max bids in order to expedite the live bidding.
  • This will be optimal for both current live bidders and current absentee bidders. For absentee bidders this will give you the opportunity to keep the auctioneer from seeing your bid on the book. For live bidders it will keep the auctioneer from seeing your maximum live bid.
  • Be Careful! You can place bids both in MyBids and in MyAgentBids. This is not a good idea, but if you do, SAN Agent Bidding will resolve them. If your Agent Bid is higher than your book bid, it will take over, if it is lower, it will leave your book bid alone.
  • When you place an Agent Bid, StampAuctionNetwork will register you with an "I" Paddle for Live Internet Bidding.
  • StampAuctionNetwork will automatically drop your linking OR bids if a bid marked as OR is executed for you.
  • Once your Agent Bids are executed, they will become part of your regular MyBids and will be archived into MyArchivedBids when we take the sale down.
To Enter your SAN Agent Bids
  • Check and see that the auction you want to bid in is in the "Live Bids" section. Right now SAN Agent bidding is only available for Live Bidding Sales.
  • Make sure you are logged in and approved to bid with that firm. You can check by going to their auction, SAN will tell you whether you are approved to bid or not.
  • Place your mouse over [SAN Agent] and choose the auction from the list.
  • Follow the Auction Categories until you see the lot descriptions and a place to enter your bid.
  • To make changes to your bids, choose either [All my Current Agent Bids] this will give you only the open lots.
  • or to look at your bids by Auction Firm and Sale Number, pick [Review Agent Bids by Sale]
There are some diffences to note in SAN Agent bidding.
  • You may change your SAN Agent bid before the auction as your bid will not affect the selling price until the auction begins.
  • You may delete your SAN Agent bid for the same reason.
  • You will not see your Agent Bids, in the SAN.My Bids. "My Bids" go to the Auction Firms. For the same reason, you will not get a confirmation from the auction firm. You don't want them to confirm your bids, right?
  • Agent Bids are seen under [SAN Agent] "All My SAN Agent Bids" and "Review Agent Bids by Sale"
  • StampAuctionNetwork will automatically drop your linking OR bids if a bid marked as OR is executed for you.
  • Once your Agent Bids are executed, they will become part of your regular MyBids and will be archived into MyArchivedBids when we take the sale down.
Fees and Payment Instructions
  • We will charge you 1% of the realized amount, with no caps or minimums if your SAN Agent bid is successful.
  • We will send you an invoice after the close of the sale. Payment is due on acceptance of the lot from the auction house. Paypal is the recommended payment method.
  • StampAuctionNetwork Agent Bidding is part of Extended Features, however it is available for anyone to use who has signed up with either a trial, a BASIC voluntary subscription, or any of the entended features. Payment of the 1% is required.
