Proxibid.com says that they are an online marketplace that is part auction and part retail store, and whose goal is to allow their customers to shop "what they want, how they want, and when you want."
According to their website, collectors of "just about anything buy on Proxibid." Every month, new members join their marketplace, with almost 10,000 new members signing up each month.
How Does It Work?
There are four different ways of purchasing things on this digital marketplace: instant purchase, make an offer, timed auction, or live auction. Instant purchase is when a seller prices an item at a price that requires no negotiation - buyers who will pay the price can purchase it outright. Make an offer, on the other hand, is for items which can be negotiated.
A timed auction has a set beginning and end time during which members can make bids online for a variety of items from a single seller, while a live auction functions like a traditional auction - live, phone, and online bidders all compete for a single item at a time until the auction is closed.
Creating a membership account is completely free and takes just a few minutes for you to upload your personal shipping and billing information - they also provide free spectator accounts, but a full account must be created before you can take part in any buying.
And since the items for sale on this website are described as "highly valued items," users can expect them to be in the higher price values as well, though with such a wide range of items and such a varied way of purchasing them, it is hard to provide a specific price range.
Because Proxibid.com is just a marketplace website that brings sellers and buyers together and performs the ecommerce functions necessary for the transaction of the goods, they personally do not offer a Refund Policy.
All buyers should be aware that the sellers themselves will have to be the ones who honor any potential Return or Refund Policies, though they are not required to do so.
Customer Service Contact Info

Unfortunately this company seems to have many mixed reviews, with some customers saying that the pictures of the item they bid on mislead them to the quality or condition of the item and when they went to complain, the website would not help them.
Competitors and Alternatives?

Buyers beware! I bid on an item in one of their auctions. I won the bid (power washer worth at least $500) for only $10! There was NO RESERVE on the item. I had also won another item.
I was informed upon pick up that the seller was not going to sell me the power washer because they wanted more money for it. BUT THERE WAS NO RESERVE!
So I said I would not be picking up the other item I won, as the power washer was what I really wanted.
So they black listed me from Proxibid.
Proxibid stated their understanding but said they would only stand by the buyer regardless. There are better auction companies out there! Look at the reviews for Proxibid... there are many many many comments like mine.
No stars. Bought merchandise seller never contacted me on after a few days instead told proxi I didn't pay. Gave me two days to respond or get black-flagged. Did immediately and still got black flagged even after the auction house I bought from said they were moving to different building and they were in chaos.
But year watch yourself with grading at first coins I bought were half the grade stated. Proxi does not watch their sellers only the buyers. Screw this place. Then I went to delete all my info and could not.
Perhaps the worst place to buy coIns on the internet. A total scam and ripoff. At the same time that the seller boldly and in bright colors shows the "grade" and "value" (which are total BS), they then in the small print say they are not responsive for any grades, and do not allow returns. It is a total scam that proxibid allows their sellers to boldly advertise grades and at the same time deny responsibility.
PREPARE TO BE RIPPED OFF!!
Buyer beware. if you have a legit dispute and the seller sends you a defective product, proxibid reps won't allow you to start a dispute. This website is a scam.
Always check out "TERMS and CONDITIONS" and if you see this RUN AWAY!!!PLEASE READ: At the request of the auction company, this auction permits bids to be placed by the auctioneer, an employee of the auctioneer, or the seller or an agent on the seller's behalf. While Proxibid's Unified User Agreement prohibits this behavior, in accordance with UCC 2-328, this auction is permitted to engage in this activity by providing this clear disclosure to you, the bidder.
PLEASE READ: This auction company has requested and been granted access to see all bids placed including any maximum pre-bids. This auction is permitted to engage in this activity by providing this clear disclosure to you, the bidder.
DIXIONS Auctions is the worst. I never bid on their auctions Cheeters.
I love this company and make a lot of money with this company. The best companies are Auction USA and Auctionwholesales at proxibid.com/auctionwholesales. There are many more and proxibid is weeding out the losers. The one thing people need to understand is this is not ebay or amazon. You have to put on your big boy britches on or big girl britches. No whiny baby's aloud. Proxibid in not for the faint of heart. With that said if you are in retail you will come out smelling like a rose over all. . I hope this helps
