What is a Private Seller?

A private seller is a seller on Aucto.com that wishes to ensure that their identity is not known by the public. While the seller's identity is private, Aucto ensures that the seller meets our strict guidelines for selling on the website. As part of the anonymity, the seller's name will not be named and no logo branding will be displayed on Aucto.com to the general public. Only Those approved for the sale will be able to see information on who the seller is. 

The sale will be conducted as per standard Aucto auctions with the buyer needing to agree to the seller's terms before being permitted to submit bids.

Can I Still Contact a Private Seller?

You are unable to contact a private seller before you have been approved to submit bids in their auction. This is done to ensure the identity remains private before the sale. Once you have been approved for the sale, you will be able to contact the seller directly via the Aucto messaging center. To access the Aucto messaging center, you must click the contact button next to the seller's name badge.
