Timed online auctions for farm clearances

EasyBids’ timed online auction system has all the features you need to run a successful auction. We supply a fully branded online auction web site that can be included in your web site. Here are some of the features of the EasyBids timed online auction system. Full description

Full description

A full description and great photos give your bidders the confidence to bid and also builds trust in your online auction. There is no limit to the number of photographs and links to videos. Include PDF documents for additional information.
item detail You set the starting bids and bid increments for each lot.

Auto bids

Bidders can enter a maximum amount which they are prepared to pay. The system automatically bids on their behalf.

Bid extension

A lot, or even the whole auction, can be extended if there is active bidding in the last few minutes. For example you can set a lot’s closing time to extend by 2 minutes if there is a bid within 2 minutes of the closing time. You can set these times in our comprehensive administration system. Results show that the final price can increase by 40% or more past the closing time.

Real time bidding

The bidding pages and the catalogue automatically keep your bidders up to date with the latest bids. Bidders can select the lots for their watch list which also shows real time bidding. Vendors love the ca-ching sound (cash register) as another bid arrives.

Lot staggering

The auction can be set to close in lot number order or the lots can all close at the same time. Combining lot staggering with bid extension gives your timed online auctions the same urgency as a live auction. EasyBids features are all designed to get the best price for the vendor.

On the Market

A feature unique to EasyBids. As soon as the bid reaches reserve the lot’s image is overlayed with ‘On the Market’. Many auctioneers use this device during live auctions and they tell us that there is often more interest once bidders know the item is to be sold.

Google Search

Your catalogue is included in Google search. We include a summary description of each lot in its web address. This helps in promoting your auction. As we create a mini-web site for your auction you have full access to the Google Analytics which will show you how many visitors you had, where they came from and which lots were the most viewed.

Classified websites

All our customer’s auctions are listed on Bidsonline.com.au except those which are closed such as staff auctions. If you have an account with any of these websites EasyBids will automatically send them your listings and photographs:
