As connectivity gains more and more traction in our day to day lives, Swappy has developed a unique platform that is able to mesh the gap between traditional and online auctions.
With Swappy’s live auction platform, auctioneers are able to simulcast their auctions over a broadband connection to other Swappy members, allowing them to place absentee bids before the auction doors open and then, once started, bid and purchase in real time from all over the world.
By expanding from the traditional brick and mortar type auction to include both a web and mobile interface, this unique platform significantly increases the audience that can be reached.
Swappy Live auctions can be accessed via the top navigation menu of the website.
Once selected, Swappy will populate all the current and future dated live auctions. Clicking the "See auction details" button will allow you to explore all the lots up for auction.
Swappy will populate the live auction banner at the top of the page which will include a brief summary of what's included in the auction. Within the banner you will also find the "Sign up for this live auction" button, which will allow you to register for the live auction.
Browsing the lots that are up for auction is easy, at a glance you can see the lot number, detailed image and starting bid price.
Navigation of the lots is made even more convenient if you decide to use the left hand side menu to narrow down your search with several useful filters.
Select a lot to get detailed information including:
