How to buy
To bid on fish you need to log in to the website. Once logged in you can view Live auctions. You can use the search fields to narrow your search or if you have a particular item in mind. To bid on a fish, click on the auction and view the product description and images. Please view the photographs and descriptions carefully. By holding your mouse cursor on the picture you can zoom in to the item for more detail. If you’re happy to proceed you can enter a monetary value in the ‘bid now’ field.
Proxy Bids (Auto-Bid Feature)
You can place a ‘proxy bid’ (maximum bid), which essentially means that the website will bid for you automatically up to the price you enter. The website will bid the absolute minimum required to secure the lot for you. You can simply enter your maximum bid and leave the website to do the rest. You will be sent an email if you are outbid and be given the opportunity to increase your bid.
Bid increments on Aquatics To Your Door Auctions are done on a Lot by Lot basis, these are normally set at either £1 or £5 depending on the fish.
Please note:- If the Bidding price goes above an estimated value, the bidding increment will stay the same for that lot throughout its auction time Remaining.
Bidders should be aware that we discourage the use of sniping software.
In the interests of fairness, should any bids placed in the last 5 minutes for any Lot be made, then this will extend the end time on that particular Lot by 1 minute.
