How to Bid Online

How does the auction work?

Our New Bidding Platform brings you the latest technology to offer remote online bidding from anywhere in the world. This platform allows you to leave an absentee bid prior to the auction or participate live on sale day.

1) Click on Login/Register to bid on the top of this page
2) Click Register in the top right corner
3) Put in your email address & create password for your new account
4) Complete your profile –> then click “Save Profile”

*Once we receive your request, we will contact you for further information to approve you to bid.

There are two ways to bid:

Absentee bidding

You can place absentee bids in advance of the live auction. Bodnar’s Auction hassle-free absentee bidding system ensures you get the best prices. Be sure to submit your maximum bid amount before the live auction begins. Your bid stays at the lowest minimum amount required to keep you in the lead, and increases (up to your max amount) only if another bidder places a competing bid.

Live bidding

Your chances of winning are three times greater when you bid during the live auction. The live auction always begins at 11:00 am on sale day. To bid live, simply visit the catalog at 11:00 am and click ‘Enter Live Auction’. You will be taken to the bidding console where the live auction is taking place.

You do not need to register to bid to view the auction live. The live feed is open to the public and free of charge. You only have to register to bid if you want to place a bid.

When the sale goes live at 11:00 am we start at the top bid and move forward with Joe Bodnar auctioneering to the live audience virtually where you can place bids live during the event. If you left a bid prior to the start time, Bodnar’s Auction Platform will bid on your behalf.

Get Started

I’m happy with everything Joe and Janet did, you were both informative and were very helpful with the questions I had being that I was never in that position before. Janet’s response time was also positive for me. It was interesting to watch the auction live. I thought you did an amazing job and had a nice banter back and forth. You seem to be a good team! Thank you for all your hard work and making this difficult time of letting  my deceased father’s collectibles go an easy experience.

I would like to thank you for including me in your online sale.
Everything from none contact drop off, to none contact pick up, was handled with the outmost professionalism.
I appreciated your clear communication after the sale with a printout and an explanation of when I’ll receive my check.
Overall I was very please with the prices my jewelry achieved, some lot  went for less then I expected, others went for more, it’s all in the average.

Thank you very much

I come to your auctions often. You and your staff are great. Your change to an online auction on 4/9 is just another testament to your fine character and being thoughtful of others. The items are great no doubt, but a big reason I keep coming back is due to the culture you have created. Thank you. Art
