What is a silent auction?

A silent auction, also referred to as a Timed Auction, Online Auction, Online-Only Auction or Digital Auction, distinguishes itself by the absence of an auctioneer.

A silent auction works with bidders placing online bids within a set time frame.

At indy.auction we prefer the term Timed Auction as we also support online live-stream auctions (join the wait list here).
