It’s moving day!
Psychedelic Art Exchange has moved our auction! After much deliberation, the PAE auction is now hosted on a new reliable, secure, and user-friendly online auction software.
The past 15 months of hosting our auctions on LiveAuctioneers have allowed us to reach a much broader audience of collectors. However, the app never really won the hearts and minds of our core clientele, and our unique brand was lost in the sea of LiveAuctioneers offerings. The platform was not ideal for an auction like ours, with a large stable of consignors in a niche market.
When it came to functionality, the greatest deficit of the LiveAuctioneers platform for our bidders was the auction way the auctions ended. Concert Poster buyers are generally accustomed to online-only auctions that offer extended bidding. Extended bidding allows bidders additional time to focus on the lots they are most interested in. We are pleased to announce that this feature will return to our auction, and the clock will now have a 5-minute extended bidding clock. If there is a bid on any lot in the last 5 minutes of the auction, that lot clock will automatically reset for an additional 5 minutes bidding period, until the hammer goes down once and for all.
The other advantage of this platform is the ability to manage our ever-growing roster of consignors. LiveAuctioneers was not designed for the large roster of consignors and consignments that PAE maintains. All invoicing and payment processing will again be managed in-house by PAE staff.
Our January CGC Auction has premiered on the new platform. The January CGC sale will be our first opportunity to try the new system in real-time. We are launching with a modest number of lots in an abbreviated timeframe. The auction will run until Thursday Evening, January 26 at 9 pm Eastern.
This soft transition will allow PAE to run an auction in real time and carefully observe all of the nuances in the system. We will also be enhancing several auction features in the coming days image size and clarity are top on that list.
