Here’s how it works

  • Place your bid

    If you are the highest bidder, the lot will turn green. We'll let you know if you're outbid, and the lot will turn red. Any bid you place is binding. If you have the winning bid once the auction ends, you'll receive a payment confirmation email.

  • Payment

    Payments through Catawiki are safe and secure. Bids placed exclude the 9% auction fee and shipping costs. There are no additional costs for the buyer. You can choose from several payment methods.

  • Delivery and shipping

    Sellers are obliged to send their lots within 3 working days following confirmation of payment to Catawiki. Shipping costs are indicated in lot descriptions. In some cases, sellers may not charge for shipping. This is also indicated in lot descriptions.
