The leading online auction house is closing its doors

Auctionata Paddle8 AG was the leading online platform for art & luxury collectibles until the end of the business, attracting more than 800,000 customers worldwide.

From its beginnings in 2012, the company offered over 700 curated livestream auctions and a dedicated online shop with more than 25,000 objects from more than 14 categories. This was all delivered through a specially developed online platform for private consignors, business partners and buyers from the international luxury segment.

The vision of the company was the digitization of the auction business and the establishment of a leading global online market for art and luxury. By December 2016, Auctionata Paddle8 AG was one of the ten largest auction houses worldwide.

We would like to thank all of our customers, partners and everyone involved in Auctionata Paddle8 AG for everything they gave to the business. Auctionata Paddle8 AG closed down in April 2017. For further information, please see below.
