Why Do I Need To Register To Buy A Photograph Or Artwork?

To be able to efficiently administer the bidding process, you will need to create an account by adding a username, e-mail address and password.

This will enable you to receive notifications about the auction you are bidding on and allow smooth transfer of NFT ownership to you if you place the winning bid.

It will also allow us to e-mail you the download link for the original hi-resolution images after you've made payment.

It shouldn't take more than a minute to sign-up. Make sure to keep your details in a safe place to access later.

What Are The Bid Increments?

Bid increments are set amounts by which a bid can be raised. So for example, instead of raising a bid by only 1 cent, it's only possible to raise bids in increments of $5. This has the effect of saving time in getting to the final winning bid.

Provably Protect auctions have a sliding scale for bid increments as follows...

# From To Increment Amount
1 $10 $1000 $5
2 $1000 $10000 $10
3 $10000 $100000 $50
4 $100000 $99999999999 $100

What Happens After The Auction Is Won?

If you have placed the winning bid you will be notified by e-mail after the auction closes.

Reply to that e-mail with your preferred method of payment (EFT, Visa, MasterCard, Paypal, Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP) and your address and telephone number.

Provably Protect will then send you an invoice with your address, telephone number and the relevant payment details included.

After you have made the payment of the winning bid a link to download the original hi-resolution photograph or artwork file to your computer will be provided.

Then you need to decide if you want to relist your photograph or piece of art immediately to sell it or take ownership of the NFT and possibly sell later on.

To take ownership of the NFT, you need a cryptocurrency wallet. Obtaining a cryptocurrency wallet, if you don't have one already, is easy and free.
