Advances in retail technology have enabled – and even encouraged – us to live our lives from our couches. And the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing have only intensified our desire to conduct business without having to leave the comfort and safety of our homes (or even put on pants for that matter). Online estate sales are no exception.
If you are in the business of liquidating property, especially private homes, it might be time to explore taking your business online. But where do you start and what do you look for?
Four Special Considerations for Online Estate Sales
Prioritize Hassle-Free Setup and Operation
You're trying to sell stuff, not build a POS system. We can fully host your sale on our site. There's no software to install and maintain, which means you don't have to be an IT expert – or hire one – in order to manage your sales. If you do have a question, our friendly tech support team is available to lend a hand in a timely manner.
Once you're up and running, our flexible invoice and payment collection system can help you close sales quickly and easily. You can invoice bidders with the click of a button and email or print custom invoices with ease. We can even help you out if you don't want to collect payments online.
Don't Break the Bank
Expensive solutions can eat into your profits and those of your customers. We offer reasonably priced packages with a variety of options and services to suit your needs whatever the size of your sale. We even offer special pricing for non-profits.
Remember: It's All About You!
Our system can be customized to support your brand and integrate seamlessly into your culture. Do you prefer not to do business on Sunday? We can set up your platform for that. If you or your target customers prefer to do business via cell phone, our mobile-friendly capabilities can accommodate you.

Take Experience Seriously
You don't want to trust your business to someone who hasn't been around the block a few times and seen a few things.
We are a pioneer in the auction software business with more than 25 years of experience in developing single seller, fully branded, user-friendly auction systems. If you count on your fingers, you'll figure out that means we got our start way back in the 1990s when that upstart eBay burst onto the scene.
