Milestone reflects record membership growth
Dallas, Texas (August 10, 2021) — Heritage Auctions, the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer, has eclipsed 1.5 million online bidder-members who take advantage of the online platform to buy and sell collectibles from more than 40 categories.
“Heritage Auctions remains on the cutting edge of auction technology, and our free database of more than 5.5 million lots has reached a global community of collectors,” Heritage Auctions CEO Steve Ivy said. “Our 1.5 million bidder members have identified and verified HA.com as the premier destination for buyers and sellers of collectibles, unique artworks, and luxury items.”
The most heavily visited website for fine arts and collectibles, HA.com offers access to Heritage’s Make Offer to Owner program, which enables members to bid on lots that already have been sold to other collectors. The Make Offer to Owner program is just one of several tools offered to members of HA.com — a list that also includes the ability for bidders to track their own collections, register their ownership of items sold at past auctions, and create personal Want Lists.
“We have added a quarter of a million online bidder members around the world over the last two years, a significant portion of whom live in the most affluent areas of Europe, Asia, and Latin America,” Ivy said. “The growing number of bidders is a reflection of Heritage’s growth within the auction world as the premier landing spot for collectors.”
Heritage maintains offices in New York, Dallas, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Beach, London, Paris, Geneva, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong.
HA.com has more than 1,500,000 registered bidder-members and searchable free archives of five million past auction records with prices realized, descriptions, and enlargeable photos. Reproduction rights routinely granted to media for photo credit.
