Insert Your Auction’s Best Service Terms in Proxibid Lot Descriptions


We are showcasing Star Coin and Currency because auctioneer Jim Haver uses every character of space in the Proxibid template to tout his superior service terms. You should do the same, assuming your terms are as appealing, that is.

When you click on a desired lot in a Star Coin auction, you not only get a succinct accurate numismatic title, in the above case–“BLAZING $1 1898-O Morgan PCGS GEM MS66”–you also get that title repeated in the lot description with Haver’s appealing service terms: “LOW COST FAST DAILY SHIPPING. BID WITH CONFIDENCE. WE HAVE ONE OF THE HIGHEST FEEDBACK RATINGS ON PROXIBID. 100% return policy. If an item does not meet your expectations simply return it within 7 days of delivery for full refund. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. …”

Of course, if your auction house lacks such terms, you may not want to showcase them as Haver does. Let’s doctor the Star Coin screen shot with the same coin and then include the service terms of lesser competitors on Proxibid, explaining why companies with terms like these will never appear in our rankings (click photo below to expand):


The frightful service terms in the illustration above–no APN, no adherence to Unified User Agreement, no shipping, high buyer’s premium, additional fees, etc.–are actually found in Proxibid auctions.

Now let’s return to Jim Haver’s lot description and the fictitious one above. Same coin. Which one do you think will attract more bids and give your onsite crowd a run for its money, literally?

Proxiblog is an independent entity with no connection to the auction portal Proxibid. Our intent is to uphold basic numismatic standards as established by the American Numismatic Association and the National Auctioneer Association and to ensure a pleasurable bidding experience not only on Proxibid but also on similar portals such as iCollector and AuctionZip.
