Verified Account Protection
A WireBids user may become verified to let sellers know that the bidder has undergone a process to demonstrate the truth of their identity. Some sellers may restrict bidding in their auctions to verified users only. A user may become verified through the Buyer Dashboard by providing the following information:
A credit card on file
A valid government-issued ID
Once WireBids has received this information, we will verify the account and you will be permitted to bid in restricted auctions for which you qualify.
User verification does not imply that WireBids endorses or guarantees the user’s activity. It only means that the user has taken extra steps to provide identifying information to WireBids which may be shared with a seller in case of default.
Listing TypesWhatever your selling needs are, we’ll help you reach buyers.
WireBids offers two listing formats, each with their own advantages. You’ll be able to reach thousands of buyers through either format.
WireBids’ timed online auctions can be set to last hours, days or weeks, and can be restricted only to certain pools of bidders or bidders that you preapprove. You can list several items grouped together into an auction event, or we can list your item in the Marketplace as a single item auction.
If you’re looking to advertise your inventory with fixed prices, then WireBids Marketplace is for you. Buyers will be able to see your item for sale and make offers or buy it directly through the website. Your listing will last for 30 days until it is renewed or purchased. If you’re interested in listing your entire inventory, we can help you automate the process.

Please note that a 'Seller' account is an enhanced version of a 'Bidder' account. You'll still be able to bid on other auctions, but as a seller you'll have the ability to create and edit lots. All auctions are subject to WireBids approval. By applying for a 'Seller' account, you are agreeing to additional terms and conditions.
