What happens after placing a bid?
We save the various offers submitted by our members and forward them to the auction house in question.
The highest bidders of the different lots are then contacted privately by the auction houses to announce the results of these sales. The payment of the transaction will be made outside the Delcampe website.
Tip: As these sales may take place through other channels such as a public auction, you may be contacted a little later.
Warning: If you are not the highest bidder, the auction house will not contact you.
