Online Bidding FAQs
I have bid (either onsite, by telephone, or via absentee bid) with RM Sotheby's in the past; do I need to create a new account for online bidding?
Is there a fee for bidding online?
I see that there will be an authorization on my credit card. Will this be refunded to me after the sale?
The authorization on your credit card is not an actual charge. This is simply a credit validation that will automatically fall off your account between 7–30 days following the auction. This will not show up on your credit statement and will not cause interest to accrue on your account.
