Pacific Galleries Premier Auction catalogs are hosted at Artfact.com and their U.K. based sister site Invaluable.com. You can bid using a web browser live during auction sessions by either clicking on the "Bid Live Online" button in the upper right hand corner of our web site and registering at least three hours before the auction, or by registering directly at Artfact.com where you can place either absentee bids before the auction session begins or participate live during the auction. You cannot register both through our web site and at Artfact.com. Bidders who use this service pay an additional 3% in Buyer's Premium, so if you wish to place absentee bids, it's best to do so by clicking on the "Place and absentee bid" button by the lot you are interested in on our web site and not through Artfact. You can also register with Artfact and just watch the auction, there is no obligation to bid.
Learn how to place bids and use the Artfact Live! Auction console by watching the demonstration.
The best way to ensure you win the lots you really want is to attend the auction in person, and we'd love to meet you, but when attending the auction in person is just not possible, bidding live online from the comfort of your home or office is a good second choice.
