|We always want to hear if you think ‘shill bidding’ is going on – after all, we want our auctions to be fair and fun.
|This is why we always conform to the Sale of Goods Act 1979 for Auctions in the UK, which states in section 57: “where, in respect of a sale by auction, a right to bid is expressly reserved (but not otherwise) the seller or any one person on his behalf may bid at the auction.”
|Basically, that means the seller or their representative (i.e. their auctioneer) can bid up to the reserve price, without it being considered ‘shill bidding’.
|If you still think shill bidding is happening, just send us an email at email@example.com
