About Our Auction
Welcome to The West Kortright Centre's annual benefit art auction! This year, artwork is physically hung in the Centre's Roberts Room Gallery, but the bidding is hosted, here, online.
Viewing and Bidding are easy! Anyone can view the auction and all of the auction items. To bid on auction items you need to set up an account on www.32auctions.com. It is as simple as entering your email address and a password, then checking a few boxes.
~ Bidding Details:
A proxy bid allows you to enter the maximum amount you're willing to spend with the goal of winning the item at the lowest possible price. The system will bid for you, up to your maximum proxy bid amount, as additional bids are entered on the item.
An exact bid is the amount you want the item's current selling price to immediately jump to. Your bid amount will not change as additional bids are entered on the item.
~ How do I enter a proxy bid or an exact bid?
To enter a proxy bid, enter your maximum bid amount, click the Proxy Bid button, and then submit your bid.
To enter an exact bid, enter your bid amount, click the Exact Bid button, and then submit your bid.
~ Will anyone see my maximum proxy bid amount?
Rest assured, your maximum proxy bid amount is never exposed to anyone other than you during the online auction.
~ How do I pay for an item I won?
We don't automatically process payments when an item is won or purchased. Instead, winning bidders are sent a notification with a link to their invoice where they can submit payment online, by phone, or by mail.
