In order to participate in an auction, you must register and be approved.

To register for an auction, you will firstly need to create an account.

  • Click on the Register button found on any item within an auction or click here
  • Complete all the required fields and tick the box to confirm you have read and agree to the auction’s terms & conditions
  • Click the Register button to submit the form

Once the form has been submitted, it will require approval by Ad Astra Auctions. You will receive a confirmation email once you have been approved.  Please note, that in some instances a refundable deposit maybe required. This will also be emailed to you, along with payment options. Deposits range from $500 to $1,000 and funds can be used towards winning invoices or refunded immediately following the auction close.

Once your registration has been approved, you will be able to make bids including Proxibids (a.k.a. AutoBids, MaxBids, Commission Bids) on lots. Learn more about AutoBids here.

All registrations are approved manually so you may experience a delay between registering for an auction and being able to place a bid.

If you attempt to bid while your registration is pending, the system will prevent you from bidding and show a pending message. If you have been waiting longer than 24 hours for your registration to be processed, please contact us via email.
