Q: What is BidSmith?

A: BidSmith is all things auctions!  We began as a local online auction house that specialized in antiques & collectibles.  We have morphed into an online bidding platform where BidSmith affiliates hold their own auctions.  We help train and assist affiliates just getting started as well as help with the implementation of online bidding capabilities to already established brick & mortar auction houses or consignment shops.


Q: How can I start bidding?

A:  Whether you found us directly or through one of our affiliate’s sites, you will find a “Register to Bid” button or link at the top of the page.  When you register with BidSmith you are able to bid on any of our current auctions and will always have the same bidder number.


Q: I have some old Picasso’s lying around, how can I put them up for auction.

A: BidSmith’s network of affiliates is growing everyday.  We can help you with an entire estate or direct you to the closest affiliate for you to consign your priceless artwork!  Fill out our contact form and let us know how we can help.


Q: Affiliate?  That sounds awesome, how do I sign up?

A: We normally find that carrier pigeons are ideal and make great pets.  If birds aren’t your thing we have provided an affiliate inquiry form HERE!  There is also an affiliate link on our homepage.
