Can I use an iPad or tablet to bid online?

You need to use a computer to bid online. Video and audio streaming on an iPad and other tablets is not real time and is delayed 30-60 seconds.

How does the registration and requesting bidding approval process work

You only need to register once for online bidding at all APG sales. Once successfully registered you will receive an email with a password and a bidder ID. However please note that for each sale you are required to request bidding approval. This request is processed by our finance department.

How long prior to a sale should I request bidding approval

You should request bidding approval as early as possible, but no later than two business days prior to a sale. Unfortunately, late requests cannot be processed.

Do I need to register to watch the sale

No, on sale day just visit the APG homepage and click on Live Streaming.

What happens if I am the successful bidder

You will be contacted about 30 minutes after your purchase by an APG representative in order to pay and to arrange transport for your horse. Transport arrangements need to be made by you and advised to the APG representative.

How do I bid

You bid by clicking on the Bid button that displays the asking price on the right of the screen. It is highlighted in red below.

How do I alter the asking price

You don’t.  The bidding clerk will control the price increments used to set the asking price. 

In the event that you wish to bid at a price different to the current asking price you will need to send a message to the bidding clerk using the message box. It is up to the bidding clerk to alter the asking bid price and then it is up to the bidder to click on the Bid button to place the bid at the new asking price. 

Please note, however, that alterations to the asking price are at the discretion of the bidding clerk, and the minimum increment for online bidding is $1,000.  We recommend that you do not request changes to the asking price except in rare circumstances.

See screenshot of the Bidding Screen

In this example by clicking on Bid $40,000 you will alert the auctioneer of your bid.

You will know you have the bid because the bid button changes to You have the leading bid and does not allow you to bid again.

Please Note: It is good practise when bidding online to bid early to avoid disappointment
