"My go-to place for the things in my collection!"
"LiveAuctioneers is a great auction site, with all the best online auctions in one site. Excellent way to keep track of your bids and wins."
"Best variety of auctions; excellent customer service."
"My only criticism of LiveAuctioneers is that it's addictive! I've found incredible deals on rare and niche pieces of vintage furniture close to me that I wouldn't have found otherwise. A new way to find and shop for antiques, and WAY better selection than eBay, Etsy, or 1stDibs."

Ratings and Reviews
2019 App Update is Huge!
The improvements to the app made in early 2019 are a huge improvement. The live bidding experience is richer (e.g. swipe photos, see item info while bidding) and you can now save searches in the mobile app (before you could only modify saved searches on the website). Many other thoughtful improvements, and I will note the competitors e.g. Invaluable have failed to keep up while others like Bidsquare still don’t even have an app (in 2019!). The folks at LiveAuctioneers are ahead of the pack and the latest updates demonstrate their commitment to investing in improving the app and making it easier to use and more powerful. Thank you.

Not fast enough, I keep missing my items because the app doesn’t refresh quick enough
Hello, I love the idea of the app to go along with the website, but the way this app is made doesn’t allow for actual bidding to happen. Even when I’m watching my item come up in the queue, it sometimes flashes the item on screen for less than a second before the item moves on. Other times it waits so long that several other items pass by while I’m still stuck a few items back. I try to submit my bids, using both the bidding beforehand feature and attempting to bid live, but I still don’t win the item even when my bid was higher. I try to bid live so that I can bid my actual bid, not the “imaginary” bid it says that I’m the highest bidder for, then tells me my bid has been sent. But I never see my bid flash on the feed and I’m never able to win, despite having a higher bid.
Please remedy this, you can’t use this bidding app as a bidding app, so I don’t recommend this app to anyone.

Keeps Getting Better and Better
I’ve used LiveAuctioneers for over 5 years now and I have always loved their platform. Over the years it has been refined and much easier of an interface. It used to be rather clunky and a bit outdated, but it also wasn’t as popular. The recent update is great- because it allows to refine searches to show recent listed. This was a main issue I had with the app, and why I just regularly used the browser. I’m excited to see how they will grow
