Lando Auctions - Live/Webcast Auction Bidding FAQ

What is a Live/Webcast auction?

A Live/Webcast auction is identical to a traditional live auction except you can place Bids on any Lot prior to when the auction begins, called Prebidding. Once the Live/Webcast begins you can continue to Bid online in realtime along with those gathered in the room in Edmonton. The Auctioneer controls the bidding in the room and the bidding online.

How do I set up an Live/Webcast bidding account?

Go to the bidder registration page for the auction, this can be found in the online/web catalogue for each sale or by clicking here. If you have previously registered you can enter your Username and Password and proceed with registering for the auction. If this is your first time registering you will be asked to provide personal information and register a valid Visa, MasterCard on the sign up page.

How do I bid?

Each lot in the auction has a clearly marked bidding window. Once you are registered into the auction there are two ways to bid:

1.) You simply indicate the maximum amount you wish to bid in the window where indicated and click on the “Place Bid” button. You will be taken to a confirmation screen that will ask you to either “Confirm Bid” or “Cancel Bid”. If you have not yet logged in you will be asked to do so in order to confirm your bid. Please note that by confirming your bid you are entering into a legally binding contract with Lando Auctions to pay for your successful bids plus the applicable Buyer’s Premium and GST/HST.

2.) Bid in real time as each lot is closing just like our live auctions. You will be required to bid, and confirm your bid, for each increment that you are advancing. In effect you are taking the same steps as in the method above but you are doing the work instead of relying on the software to bid for you automatically.

What are the bidding increments?

Bidding begins at 'Bid' amount and advances in the following bid increments:

from $  0.00 to $ 199.99 - $10.00
from $ 200.00 to $ 499.99 - $25.00
from $ 500.00 to $ 999.99 - $50.00
from $ 1,000.00 to $ 1,999.99 - $100.00
from $ 2,000.00 to $ 4,999.99 - $250.00
from $ 5,000.00 to $ 9,999.99 - $500.00
from $ 10,000.00 to $ 24,999.99 - $1,000.00
from $ 25,000.00 to $ 49,999.99 - $2,500.00
