The CUS Online Auction is an extension of your everyday auction business. Hold a timed, online-only auction at any time or allow online pre-bidding before your in-person auction begins. Publish a searchable catalogue with as many pictures as you like or allow online pre-registration for your on-site bidders. Publish sales results too! It’s all yours, privately branded with your logo and colors, in one fully integrated system.
Create your auction, pre-lot it as usual and save your pictures in a folder on your computer. CUS makes it easy to link the lots and their corresponding pictures, then optimizes the file sizes and creates the thumbnails for you. You set the rules for each auction: opening and closing times, dynamic “soft” closing to extend bidding and whether bidders must be pre-approved. Send the auction and pictures to the server with just a few clicks in the program. It’s a snap to add a few lots later or make any changes. Your CUS Auction System is directly linked to the online auction.
You’ll watch the action live from behind the scenes to see what’s happening right now. See who is looking at your auction and who is actively logged in. Watch your registrations and bids stream to your desktop in real time. As soon as the bidding ends, press one button to execute all of the sales instantly if you like. If there are lots with reserves, you have complete control. There’s no need to import outside files or enter activity by hand. You can even send the buyer invoices by email directly from CUS.
Using CUS, you can hold an in-person auction this morning and an online auction tonight, using the same software from the same industry leader.
