Another auction site? Why?Well, for the past 9 months, PAE’s auction has been running at our current auction home. The move was required as our previous auction home at LiveAuctioneers did not fulfill the administrative requirements of our highly focused and specialized product. Put simply, it lacked several features our core group of consigners and bidders demanded.
However, upon our departure from LiveAuctioneers, we realized we left something behind: The group of fledgling collectors who discovered concert posters during our residence at LiveAuctioneers. The worldwide platform provided an entry point for dozens of new collectors every month. Although the platform did not precisely fit our unique brand, it did expand the scope of rock poster collecting to include a multitude of diverse tastes and budgets.
So we found a way to have our cake and eat it too.
We recently learned that advances had been made on a state-of-the-art, user-friendly auction platform and mobile app that integrates seamlessly with LiveAuctioneers. We believe this presents a tremendous opportunity to our community, and have made the decision to begin hosting some of our auctions on this platform.
PAE buyers will now be offered biweekly auctions on both platforms each with its own unique catalog.
1.PAE SIGNATURE AUCTIONS - Our CGC and Mega Sale auction will continue to run at their current monthly frequency at https://auctions.concertpostergallery.com/. We will introduce a preview period so buyers have extra time to review the auctions.
2. PAE SPECIALTY AUCTIONS - Our new app will be the home for PAE’s creative side. This auction stream will be a shuffled deck of innovative, themed sales. CHECK OUT THE NEW PAE AUCTION SITE HERE where you can expect to see:
- Consigner-focused auctions
- Artist-focused auctions
- Genre-focused auctions
- Headshop Posters
- Punk Flyers
- Screen Prints
- PAE liquidation sales
- Dealer lots
- Grab Bags
- Super fun related collectibles such as Underground Comix, and Vintage concert t-shirts.
- And more!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Download our brand new PAE Auction mobile app! Click here to Download the IOS APP HERE and the GOOGLE/ANDRIOD APP HERE. PLEASE NOTE, this app ONLY pairs with auctions on the NEW Specialty Auction stream discussed above- you will NOT be able to bid in our Signature Auctions on this app.
Business will continue as usual on our existing auction platform. If you are registered with us on that platform, you can continue bidding as usual. However, when you register with our NEW platform, you WILL need to create an account.
Registration is a quick and easy two-step process:
Step 1: Create an account, CLICK HERE!
Step 2: Register for the auction, CLICK HERE!
PLEASE NOTE: PAE buyers enjoy our standard 20% buyer's fee. Those who buy on the LiveAuctioneers platform will pay an additional 5% premium.
Our auction style will not change. We will continue to offer extended bidding, and we will stick with the model we currently have of staggered lot closing, with each lot closing one minute apart. PAE will continue to handle all payments and invoicing, as well as shipping. You can expect our continued commitment to providing high quality material, accurate product descriptions, and attentive customer support.
We're here to make this transition as smooth as possible for you. If you require more information, please contact our Customer Service department at email@example.com or call us during working hours at 410-464-6180.
