Arranging payment

Christies-buying-guide-arrange-for-payment


Congratulations on becoming a successful bidder at a Christie’s auction!

If you were successful in either an online-only sale or a live sale, your purchase information will be available to view in your online account, where you can view invoices and choose your shipping option.

Bank transfer is the easiest way to pay, but we also accept all major credit and debit cards, and for most purchases you can pay online.

For live sales, you will also receive the following information from Christie’s Post-Sale Services via email:

• An invoice setting out the hammer price plus all other applicable charges, such as the buyer’s premium, taxes, shipping expenses and any other charges that may apply. In certain locations, Christie’s is required to collect a re-sale royalty (“droit de suite”).

• Collection information, including the location of your property and date of availability

• Shipping information, including a shipping quote if you would like one

Please note that for live auctions, payment is due within seven days of the auction, and for online-only auctions, payment is due immediately.

If you require any assistance with the payment process, the Post-Sale Services team are more than happy to assist you.


Note: Please always refer to the conditions of sale in the back of the relevant sale catalogue for a live auction or online for any online only auction.
