Auction with virtual auctioneer
Auctions with virtual auctioneer have the same functions as traditional auctions transmitted online by ArsValue. This means that the user can place absentee bids and bid live during the auction by performing the same steps and in the same way as traditional auctions.

The only difference to keep in mind is that the virtual system (virtual auctioneer) is fully automatic. In terms of absentee bids, nothing changes: they can be carried out on the site up to half an hour before the start of the auction and will be taken into consideration by the virtual auctioneer during the auction. The procedure is always the same with regards to live offers.

For your information, let us introduce you to how the virtual auctioneer works.

Each lot is auctioned for 30 seconds, within this timeframe each registered user of the auction can bid live on the lot. If bids are placed in the first 15 seconds, the time continues to run smoothly. Each time the offer is made in the 15 seconds preceding the award of the lot, the duration is extended by 15 seconds: this can happen several times as the mechanism replicates for each offer that is made within the last 15 seconds of time. The fair warning notice is activated 5 seconds before closure.
