The lot was sold for the same price as my automatic bid, so why didn’t I win it?

Sometimes several automatic bids for the same amount are placed for the same lot. Our computer system then allocates the bid to the first automatic bid submitted on our platform, in chronological order.


It is also possible that a buyer physically at the auction has bid the same amount as your automatic bid. Traditionally, in such cases, the auctioneer gives priority to the physical bidders in the auction room, not the online bidders.
