LiveAuctioneers brings an international audience of millions to the heart of the bidding action in art, antiques, jewelry, and collectibles auctions across the globe. This online auction site is a worldwide marketplace with treasures waiting to be discovered, whether by an avid collector or a first-time visitor. Everyone has an equal chance here! By hosting thousands of auctions in real-time via the internet, this online marketplace allows unprecedented access to remote sales, and savvy bidders can often land desired items at very desirable prices.

LiveAuctioneers has been granting easy access to the world of antiques via auctions since 2002 and has been running with increasing popularity in its present format since 2009. This online marketplace has eight main categories of art and antiques to choose from when browsing the site and within each of these categories, shoppers are able to narrow down their search even further. For example, under the heading of ‘Collectibles‘, visitors can choose between a wide range of sub-categories including weapons and armor, coins and currency, scientific and medical objects, musical instruments, maps and globes, and rocks and minerals, to name just a few. Collectors will be more than satisfied to find each category represented by items up for auction, either live in the moment or in the short-term future.

To start bidding on LiveAuctioneers, all that is needed is an account on their platform, which is free to create. With an account, it is possible to follow searches that you have made, to be notified of antiques of interest when they become available online. To join an auction and place bids, buyers must register for each auction and are subject to approval from the auction house, which can take 24-48 hours. A buyer’s premium is added to any item won at auction, which varies and typically ranges from 0% to 30%.

Joining LiveAuctioneers as a seller confers many advantages. The platform boasts 5.3 million monthly visits, 1.9 million of which are new each month, and 100,000 new email addresses are collected every month. This huge audience means that whatever the antique may be, there will be someone online that wants to buy it! Using LiveAuctioneers tools and features, sellers can track and analyze performance while tapping into the global internet marketplace to build their business.

On the homepage of LiveAuctioneers, buyers and collectors can go straight to the active online auctions, of which there are usually more than 1,000 to choose. It is such an enticing site and is equally easy for collectors to head straight to their antiques of interest and browsers to look around current auctions and get excited over a bid or two!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
