Why Sell on Catawiki?

Catawiki is the leading online marketplace for special objects, connecting sellers with passionate buyers and serious bidders from all over the world. With a global audience and 10 million unique visitors per month, sellers have good reasons for choosing Catawiki. Here’s why:

Weekly auctions

Our weekly online auctions attract over a billion bids from new and returning Catawiki buyers. Selling with us is a great opportunity to increase your sales with faster turnover than traditional auction houses. 

High-value, loyal customers

Nearly 90% of all spendings on Catawiki come from repeat buyers. Our passionate users include serious collectors and people who love to discover something worth treasuring.

Expert guidance

Our experts make sure your special object is ready to sell for a great price. By making sure your objects have all the necessary details and placing them in the right auctions, experts ensure that every object is easily found by the perfect buyer.

Experts are on hand to help you with any questions you might have about your object

Transparent fees

There is no limit to the number of special objects you can submit for auction on Catawiki. In return for the services we provide to buyers and sellers, we charge a seller fee of 12.5% and a buyer protection fee of 9% of the final bid amount. Buyers are required to cover shipping costs and possible customs fees where applicable.

Safe & secure payments

Our trusted payment system provides security for both buyers and sellers. We work with licensed payment providers to handle all transactions in a safe and secure manner.

Once Catawiki receives payment from the buyer, you can ship your object. Our system will then confirm the buyer has received their object - based on a valid tracking code. The payment will be released three days after delivery is confirmed.
