What is an Anonymous Seller?

An anonymous seller is a seller on Aucto.com that wishes to ensure that their identity is not known by the public. This can be done on a sale by sale basis. As part of the anonymity the seller’s name, any logo or branding, and any identifying information will not be displayed on Aucto.com to any individual who is not approved to participate in the sale. Only approved bidders will be able to see the identity of the seller.

The sale will be conducted as per standard Aucto auctions with the buyer needing to agree to the sellers terms before being permitted to submit bids. The seller must provide their own sales and removal terms. To learn more about hosting an anonymous sale on Aucto please contact Aucto seller support by calling (844) 326-7305 or emailing: support@aucto.com.
