About Christie’s Post-Sale Services

Our team of experienced staff will guide you through a simple and seamless buying experience, from payment to delivery of your purchases anywhere around the world.


If your bid in a traditional auction is successful, you'll receive the following via e-mail shortly after the sale:
  • An invoice (the hammer price plus the buyer's premium as well as any applicable taxes)
  • Collection and storage information, including the location of your property and date of availability.
  • Details on how to pay
  • Shipping information

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.

We accept all major credit and debit cards, and for most purchases you can pay online up to a limit of US$300,000 (US auctions) / US$100,000 (Dubai auctions)/ GBP 100,000 / EUR 100,000 / CHF 100,000 / HKD 1,000,000. For purchases over this threshold, bank transfer is the easiest way to pay.

Please note that for live auctions, payment is due within seven days of the auction, and for online-only auctions, payment is due immediately via online checkout. Christie’s does not accept third-party payments from an individual or organisation that is not the winning bidder.


We can help you arrange packing and shipping or you can use your own carrier. Please contact your Post-Sale Services Coordinator for further details.
