How does the online auction work?

Sellers offer their bottles to us. After a thourough check on the authenticity we register the bottle at one of the following online auctions. Registered bidders bid on the lots and after closing of the auction the highest bidder receives an invoice for the whisky. The seller will be paid within 3 weeks.

How do i sell my Whisky?

A seller needs an account. After verifying your account, you can forward your whisky to us. Please note the bottle(s) should be received by WhiskyAuction & More before the stated date on the auction calendar. Sending whisky is at your own risk. Pack the whisky properly and send registered and/or insured.

What does it cost to sell Whisky through the auction?

Sellers pay 10% commission on the hammerprice. To set a threshold amount(reserve price) we charge € 6,00. For placing your lot on our auction we charge €5,00 each lot. Vat is calculated on the sales commission, reserveprice and placing your loton the auction. No Vat at the hammerprice.

How many bottles can i offer at once?

There is no limit to the number of bottles to be introduced. We recommend not to introduce too many similar whisky's at the same time. This can have a negative impact on the price.

If there are too many similar whisky's, the auctioneer can decide to reserve a number of bottles for a following auction.

What happens if the reserve price is not met?

If the reserveprice is not met, no commission needs to be paid. The bottle has not been sold.

If a bottle is not sold, we will contact you. You can then choose to resubmit the bottle(s) in a subsequent auction, or have it returned. In the latter case you will be charged for the shipping costs and €5,00 a lot for placing your whisky's in our auction.
