Auctionata is the inventor of the online live auction. The Berlin-based start-up makes the market for fine art, antiques and collectibles transparent, accessible, and available to buyers and sellers by transferring the classical setting of the auction room to the internet.

Since May 2013, exciting online live auctions are broadcast in HD quality from Auctionata’s own TV studio several times a week. Auctionata offers a clear view of the auctioneer and the object being auctioned, real-time information on the bidding activities of the participants and the opportunity to place bids from anywhere in the world. The patented technology ensures that the auctioneer receives all bids in real-time and in the correct sequence and that he accepts a bid in the correct and fair manner.

Apart from online auctions, Auctionata offers a curated online shop in which more than 10,000 high-quality items from numerous collection categories – from paintings and jewelry through Asian art and porcelain to design and antiques – can be purchased at a fixed price around the clock. This unique combination of online auctions and online shop allows Auctionata to always offer the right channel for any item and customer.

Auctionata offers a free and nonbinding valuation service, which is accessible to anyone at any time and saves time and money: An initial valuation is carried out on the basis of a photograph of the item. The world’s largest network of more than 250 experts facilitates the professional and quick item valuation.
