Paddle8 is an online auction house, connecting buyers and sellers of fine art and collectibles across the world. We offer two types of auctions: monthly themed auctions, and benefit auctions in collaboration with non-profits.
artnet is the leading place to buy, sell, and research Fine Art, Design, and Decorative Art online. artnet offers an integrated range of information and transaction services. The fastest growing artnet product is artnet Auctions, which offers quick transactions at low costs. The artnet Price Database, the most comprehensive, color-illustrated archive of Fine Art, Design, and Decorative Art auction results worldwide, provides objective information and insights on art prices. artnet’s newest product is artnet Analytics, an analysis of Price Database data. artnet Analytics allows users to benchmark the market performance of artists, art categories, and customized sets of artworks against financial indices, such as the S&P 500 and Dow Jones, or other alternative assets such as gold.
By hosting thousands of auctions in real time via the Internet, the site allows unprecedented access to remote sales, and savvy bidders can often land desired items at very desirable prices. Leave an absentee bid, or fully engage in the auction action—it’s up to you. All bidding takes place via the Secure Bidder Network (SBN), which keeps absentee bids for upcoming sales private until the item is opened on the day of the sale.
As the world’s online auctions pioneer, Auctionata offers the gamut of services of a fine arts dealer and auction house. Working 100% online, the company offers evaluation, appraisal, authentication and marketing of precious objects, along with all associated logistics.
Sotheby’s online bidding service, called BIDnow, is available for all auctions except Wine. Through BIDnow, auctions are broadcast on sothebys.com, and clients who have registered for a paddle may place bids as if they were in the room.
