How to bid & buy


ratisbon´s helps you find treasures you will love!
We offer exciting premium items in our regular auctions, with fresh catalogues every month providing a unique selection of antiques. We prefer a personalised customer relationship and are happy to assist in building up your lifetime collection.

Why we are different to other auctioneers and dealers?

Note: Payments made by credit card or PayPal require a 2,5% payment fee.

Bidding at auction
Bidding at auction is as easy as you would think. Sign up your account, find things you want and place your bids online.
You will be informed if you are the highest bidder or have been outbid via e-mail.
You can select a maximum bid to make sure you don’t get outbid on your desired item.
All bids have to be placed in EURO however you are able to double-check the bids you are selecting in USD and GBP.

At the day an auction ends, it starts to close from 2pm CET and lots are closing progressively from that time in 40 seconds intervals.

Being the lucky winner
Winning an auction is like buying items from our sales catalogue for a fix price. We will send you an invoice containing all lots you have won after the auction has ended.

You will be able to tell us your favorite shipping and payment option in advance. You can always adjust your delivery address to your personal needs. We will ship your goods anywhere!

According to your preferences, we offer daily shipping through FedEx, DHL and German Post.

ratisbon´s wants to provide not only the best but also the fastest customer service!

The invoice total will include a Buyer´s Premium. Although many auction houses charge more, we only charge a 17,5% Buyer's Premium (including VAT) on the hammer price.

Payment can be made conveniently via credit card (+2,5% fee), PayPal (+2,5% fee) or a bank draft. Our system operates on the highest security standard available. Your data is safe!
