Each person bidding in the auction room will receive a unique bidding number from OstLicht Photo Auction. If you are already a customer, you will receive your bid paddle without having to preregister. New bidders are required to submit a written application, which may be handed in at our front desk at OstLicht Gallery until shortly before the auction begins. In the room, we can only accept bids placed with a valid bidding number.
Regard your online bid as the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item at hand. If there are no other bids, you will get the lot for the starting price. If there are lower bids than yours, your order will move to the top, and your bid will be accepted at 10 % more than the next highest bid. We are unable to accept bids under the starting (reserve) price. If you bid on our site the buyer's premium is 20% (excluding VAT). When bidding on one of the other platforms (liveauctioneers.com, on invaluable.com or on druoutonline.com) additional costs will be charged depending on the platform.
If you wish to bid at auction in real time but are unable to attend in person, we are happy to establish a telephone connection. You may use our bid form both for your written bids and your registration as a telephone bidder.
You may register as a telephone bidder by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or letter. In due time—that is, before the lots you have selected are put up for auction—we will establish a telephone connection with you. This way, you can directly participate in the auction.
Orders for telephone bids must be submitted until at least 24 hours before the auction begins. Please be advised that OstLicht Photo Auction cannot assume liability for potential failure to successfully establish a telephone connection.
In general, the terms and conditions for online bids also apply to written bids. OstLicht Photo Auction will bid on the lots you have listed on your behalf.
Regard your written offer as the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the lot. If there are no other bids, you will get the lot for the starting price. If there are lower bids than yours, your order will move to the top, and your bid will be accepted at 10 % more than the next-highest bid. We are unable to accept bids under the starting (reserve) price.
To bid live via the internet, please register for the respective auction on liveauctioneers.com, on invaluable.com or on druoutonline.com. Follow the auction without delay! You will find our complete offer with English descriptions on these websites approximately three weeks before the auction. Additional costs will be charged depending on the platform.
