American Auction Online Auction Registration

Online auction registration is straightforward. You can register anytime, even when the auction has started. To register you will need a valid credit card that we will hold or a $200 USD cash deposit (or country currency equivalent if bidding in one of our auctions outside of the United States). This deposit is to guarantee your bids.

If you are a reseller and want to buy auction items in your line of business, please contact us at (800) 801-8880 and we will email you the appropriate form for the tax authority in the part of the country in which you are bidding (note: does not apply to auctions in China.) Once you are registered with the American Auction Company, you will not be required to register again. Your deposit will be on hold unless you select the “return my deposit” and it will be refunded to you.
