Partner Auctions - Partners host an entire auction comprising of 50-100 unique lots and are featured on Tophatter’s main page and upcoming auction schedule.

If you are a professional seller who would like to be considered for a partner auction, please visit the scheduling page and contact the Account Manager applicable to the type of Partner auction you would like to host.

Community Auctions -  A Community auction is an auction created and hosted by a member of the Tophatter community. These auctions have lower fees than other Tophatter auctions because the organizers are required to provide their own advertising and attendees. See more
