Purchasing on Proxibid

The Proxibid Marketplace gives buyers access to thousands of different sellers and endless inventory.

Once you’ve found what you are looking for—whether at auction or purchased directly from a seller—it’s time to complete the transaction.

Completing the Transaction

  • When participating in a timed auction, you will receive an email from Proxibid notifying you of your purchase. In a live auction, notification will come directly from the seller.
  • Sellers in the Proxibid Marketplace typically send out an informational invoice to buyers via email within 48 hours of the purchase.
  • Invoices include complete payment details of all fees such as Buyer’s Premium, taxes, and shipping as well as any additional information the seller may wish to include.

What’s a Buyer’s Premium?

A buyer’s premium is the fee an individual seller charges a buyer for purchasing. Proxibid doesn’t determine what a seller can charge a buyer. Proxibid does charge a fee to sell in the Marketplace. Some sellers choose to pass this cost on to buyers in the form of a buyer’s premium.

  • Payment method varies by seller. All sellers who use APN, Proxibid’s payment network, are able to simply charge the credit card on file with Proxibid. All sellers who use APN are denoted with an APN badge.
  • Simply log in and visit the MyProxibid section at any time to view your invoice history or update your billing information.

APN Payment Network

Payment method varies by seller. All sellers who use APN, Proxibid’s payment network, are able to simply charge the buyer’s credit card on file with Proxibid.

  • Transacting with sellers who use APN is easy! Buyers can expect a hassle free process—no re-entering credit card information or transacting through third party services.
  • APN keeps your information safe, because sellers do not have access to your account details
  • APN helps keep Proxibid’s sellers 100% PCI compliant, meaning your personal information is secure. You’ll never be asked to give sensitive credit card details over the phone.
  • An APN badge easily identifies all sellers who use this service.

Purchasing is Safe on Proxibid

Proxibid protects buyers’ data—operating in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

All financial information—including credit card numbers—is encrypted to keep it from being accessed by someone looking to steal information. Proxibid is one of the only providers that does not share financial information with merchants directly. All cardholder information is protected using firewalls, encrypted transmission of data and vulnerability management.

Additional Safety Tips:

  • Don’t submit credit card numbers over the phone or email. Refer a seller back to Proxibid for encrypted access to this information.
  • Don’t negotiate purchases with sellers outside of our Marketplace. Proxibid can’t assist with dispute resolution or make sellers accountable without record of a transaction.

Much like a credit card company, Proxibid monitors the site for irregular or unusual buyer behavior that might indicate fraudulent activity. Learn more about the automated safeguards in our Marketplace.
