Autograph World Auction FAQ

This frequently asked questiions page answers some of the questions we have received about our auction process. Our autograph auctions have been running continuously for over 25 years. After reading this page, go to our free registration page and start bidding!

There appears to be more than one auction. Is this true?

Yes, we currently offer several different auctions: Original, Value, Daily and Signature Pieces. Each auction is a collection of lots that have the exact same end date. This means that all auctions won from the same auction are combined into a single invoice.

How do I bid?

First you need a bidder number. If you are an Autograph World customer, you already have one. You can verify this on the bidder number lookup page.

If you don't have a bidder number, you can fill out our on-line registration form. This process requires that you supply a credit card. When the auction completes, your winnings are automatically charged and shipped.

Will I be notified if my maximum bid is exceeded?

Yes. When your maximum bid is exceeded, you will receive an e-mail telling you the new current high bid. Although our system provides this functionality, it is best to check the on-line listings to be absolutely sure. While e-mail is a great tool, it isn't always 100% reliable.

It should also be noted that each auction has the ability to enable or disable a variety of e-mail notifications. When logged in, you can see this option at the top of every auction gallery.  Or you can visit the auction preferences link to change all your preferences.

Will I be notified if I am the high bidder?

Yes. Once the auction is over, you will be sent an e-mail detailing the lots you won and their shipped total. If you are paying by credit card, your card will be debited and your winnings shipped.

How long will it take to receive my winnings?

We normally ship auction winnings for credit card payers within one mailing day of the auction close date. If the auction ends on a holiday weekend shipment may be delayed.
