Making special objects available to everybody through online auctions
300 weekly auctions
Catawiki is Europe's fastest growing online auction platform. With over 300 weekly auctions across 80 categories, Catawiki is the number one website for buying and selling special objects.
Catawiki’s auctions are carefully compiled by our team of experts. They help guarantee a varied and high quality selection of lots.
Every month, Catawiki welcomes millions of visitors from all over the world. Our platform is available in 17 languages including English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese.
Registering as a seller is free and very easy to do. Once you have an account, you can offer up as many objects as you wish that are of premium quality.
Submit your lot
Select the auction that fits your lot. Please add an accurate description and clear images that showcase your lot as best as possible.
We'll notify you once the buyer has transferred their payment. You can then ship your lot within 3 working days. You’ll receive payment within 2 weeks of indicating that your lot has been shipped, provided there is no dispute related to the purchase.
Shipping costs are free of commission. As a seller, you can indicate the shipping costs for various destinations when offering up your lots.
The commission fee for sellers is 12.5% of the winning bid, excluding VAT. Commission fees are used for extensively promoting our auctions. Your lots will be promoted in several ways: through online advertisements, social media, emails and print advertising, to name a few.
Catawiki will promote your lots via multiple online advertising platforms - Google, Facebook, and our partner network of blogs and themed websites.
What Can I Sell at Catawiki’s Model Train Auctions?
Achieve the most success from being a seller on Catawiki by submitting high-quality and special model trains for auction. Some model trains that are in high demand include Märklin H0 trains in boxes from before 1970, locomotives and command stations from the brand ESU, all kinds of Z Gauge material including rolling stock and tracks, and N Gauge rolling stock, especially from the 90s and later.
How can I tell if my objects are suitable for Catawiki?
Whatever your special objects are, our auctioneers would be happy to review them for inclusion in our auctions. All lots must have a minimum estimated value of €75. This is because our buyers come to Catawiki in search of something not only out of the ordinary, but also of value. If you want to offer up objects with lower estimated values, we suggest to group them and sell them as a collection.
