15. Managing absentee bids
From the Absentee bids section of your My Account page, you have access to a summary of your absentee bids, placed on Drouot Live’s auctions.

An absentee bid can be at one of four stages:
  • Pending : your absentee bid is awaiting confirmation. The sale operator still needs to confirm your details before your absentee bid is confirmed.
  • Confirmed: your absentee bid has been confirmed and will be carried out during the auction.
  • Refused: your absentee bid has been refused by the auctioneer. This is perhaps due to missing information, an invalid form of ID, or outstanding debts. You can contact the sale operator for more information.
  • Sold to you: you have won the auction! You can contact the office to find out more information regarding the payment and collection of the lot.

You can order your absentee bids by sale, auction house or status.
