Discover treasures this summer with the Catawiki app

Written by Simone | 21st June 2019

Whether you spend your summer redecorating, going on a road trip or reading by the pool; with our app, you can find whatever you need, wherever you go. Here are some reasons to use the Catawiki app this summer.

It means you’ll never miss out

Whether you’re miles from home or sitting in your garden, you won’t need to worry about being outbid, or missing that special lot. We keep you in the loop about items you’ve favourited, you can track your orders, view your payments and manage your notifications. Most importantly, if you’ve bid on an item, but someone else has overbid you, we’ll send you a notification on your phone. This way you can always stay on top of the game and end up with the winning bid.

It offers easy browsing

Summer might be the time when you try to spend as little time at your desktop as possible and our app is designed for people on the go. Browsing through more than 300 auctions to find the pair of vintage sunglasses or the Vespa you’ve been coveting is simple with the easy navigation in our app. It allows you to hop from one auction to another, from item to item.

It’s tailor-made to your needs

When you open the app for the very first time, we’ll ask you a couple of questions about what you’re interested in. We’ll use this information to tailor your experience to your preferences and recommend items that we think you’ll like based on your preferences. You can also see popular items, featured auctions and your recently viewed items.

It makes selling even more convenient

On the app, you can take photos and upload them instantly, which is even better now that it’s summer because natural light is the best light for photographs. And better photos generally lead to more bidders and a higher profit. No need to keep hitting that refresh button either; we’ll send a notification when your item has been approved for auction and another one once it has been sold.

It’s free!

The best things in life are free, and so is our app. Free to download, free to register and free to submit objects for auction. We’ll only charge a small fee once you’ve actually won or sold something: a 9% auction fee for the items you’ve won or a 12,5% commission (excluding VAT) for the items you’ve sold.
