INFORMATION: LIVE BIDDING
There are now to ways to bid live on our auctions. You can choose from two different providers, Lot-tissimo and Invaluable Auctions. It is, however, technically not possible to bid through both platforms, which means that you have to make a choice between:
Hermann Historica co-operates with Lot-tisimo / ATG. These partners handle our customer's online live bids via the internet. Find a comprehensive description of the registration procedure on the Lot-tissimo homepage. You can bid via a PC or a Macintosh/Apple computer.
Important! If you do plan to bid online, you have to register with Lot-tissimo and with Hermann Historica. If you want to follow the auction without bidding via the Lot-tissimo site, you have to register only with Lot-tissimo.
Take care not to forget the user name / password, which you receive when registering with Lot-tissimo. If you forget the password, use the "Password Lost?" function on the Lot-tissimo homepage.
Please, be aware that the registration procedure for live bids requires a clearance by the provider as well as Hermann Historica and therefore takes 24 hours (before the start of the auction) to be completed. Furthermore, there is a default overall bidding limit of 20.000€. Please contact Hermann Historica, if you want to spend more via internet online bidding.
Alleged „Safe Bids“ are a service of the online bidding platform lot-tissimo exclusively and are in no way part of the services of Hermann Historica. We do not receive any previous information on those bids. Consequently, we can not take any responsibility concerning "safe bids" or answer any questions in regard to issues that might occur. Instead, please contact lot-tissimo directly. Alternatively, we recommend to place absentee bids directly with Hermann Historica (via fax an +49 89 54 72 64 999 or via scan to firstname.lastname@example.org).

Be aware that your status as a bidder is "pending" at first, which means that you can not place bids before Hermann Historica has approved you as a bidder, which as a rule of thumb takes at least 24 hours. However, there are no further steps that you have to take.
