You must be registered and logged in to place online bids. If you do not have an account, click the “Create An Account” link in the upper right hand corner of your screen to begin. Once your account has been created and your bidder registration has been approved, you will need to log into the catalog of your choice and agree to the terms and conditions.

Now that  you have been approved to bid,  login to or GDAG’s mobile apps for iOS and Andriod and find the item you want.  Select the “bid button” on the Lot Review Page on the mobile app or on a web browser such as Firefox or Google Crome.

Before your bid is finalized online, you will be prompted to confirm your bid amount. Bids placed on the mobile applications do not require a second step to confirm. Remember, a bid is a legally bidding contract, so be sure committed before placing your bids.

Timed online-only auctions give a  Min/Max Bid option. This will allow you to enter your max bid amount and the system will continue to bid for you by increments until it reaches your max bid. If you are outbid, you will receive an email and/or a push notification letting you know you need to increase your bid. If the bidding does not exceed your Max Bid, then you acquire the item at the lower price.

Live auctions give you the option to “pre-bid” or leave an “absentee bid” on cataloged lots prior to the sale runs live.  Simply click the bid amount displayed or enter a higher bid in the space provided. The bid will be placed at the exact amount you enter. If it is higher than opening bid, the system will proxy bids on your behalf following the bidding increments.

Once your bid has been submitted, your bid becomes a legally binding offer to purchase the item(s) or property being auctioned.

Login to your user dashboard online or from the menu bar on the mobile apps. Click on “My Bids” to see all the lots you’ve bid on.  You will receive an email notification if you have been outbid. You can also receive push notifications on your mobile device.To get the most benifit out of the system, it is strongly recomended you opt-in to receive push notifications which can be configured from your Profile Settings page.
