Bidding live during the auction

Shortly before the auction is due to start a ‘Bid or Watch Live’ button will appear at the top of the catalogue for the live auction. If you click on this button you will open the bidding or watching window. You will also have the option to turn the audio and video link on. The first lot of the auction will be displayed on the screen and there will be a button showing the amount currently being asked for by the auctioneer. If you want to bid for a lot you simply click the button to bid the amount shown on the button. When the auctioneer accepts your bid the button will display in grey and it will tell you that you are the high bidder. You will then not be able to bid again until you have been outbid by another buyer. If your bid was not accepted by the auctioneer you will be prompted to bid again.

If you see a ‘Register to Bid’ button when you login to the bidding window this indicates that you have not registered to bid live in that particular auction. You can click the button and it will take you to the registration page.

If you see a grey button appear saying ‘Pending Approval’ this indicates that you have not yet been approved to bid in the auction. You will need to contact our accounts department at or on +44 (0) 20 8761 2522 to get your approval activated.

Roseberys tips for live bidders

  • Register as early as you can to ensure your account is approved for bidding prior to your lot coming up for sale.
  • Bid as early as you can. The Roseberys representative who is relaying your bids to the auctioneer needs to know you are interested in bidding for the item.
  • Please do not wait until the last second to bid. We may not receive the bid before the auctioneer sells the lot.
  • Use the screen for information rather than waiting until you hear the auctioneer.
  • Please remember, bidding whether online or in the room, is a contractual commitment to buy.
