Live online bidding continues to be one of the most popular ways to bid if you are unable to attend the auction in person. We’ve made it even easier for you to bid live, wherever you may be in the world, via offering live bidding direct from our website. Want to give it a try? Follow these simple steps to experience it for yourself:

If registering for the first time you will need to verify your account by clicking the link on the email that will be automatically sent to you.
To bid live you will need to associate a bank card with your account. This is for identification purposes, and does not have to be the card that you may end up paying any invoices with.

Familiarise yourself with the display by watching for a few lots in advance. Remember, hammer prices will incur the buyer’s premium of 18% (including VAT). Bidding live via a gildings.co.uk account will incur an additional surcharge of 3.6% of the hammer price, in addition to the Buyer's Premium.
Successful online bidding is helped through bidding early and without hesitation when the bidding is slowing and seemingly coming to its conclusion.
