What To Do Next
Thank you for booking your sale with DV Auction-the livestock industry’s leading online marketplace!
Here are your next steps to ensuring success on sale day:
You will soon be receiving a contract in the mail and via email. Please fill out and send this contract back along with 50% of the broadcasting fee (an envelope will be provided). The balance of the fee will be due after the sale.
Capitalize on the power of advertising! In order to make the most of your investment, it is essential to include DV logos with on all your advertising-that way prospective buyers that know they can’t attend the sale will still inquire for more information. Proxy bidding (placing a bid in our system without being present during the time of the auction) will also allow buyers that are too busy to watch the sale make their purchases. When fielding calls about the sale, don’t forget to remind buyers to visit your DVA online listing for a map, online catalog and more sale information.
A suitable on-site internet connection is an important part of making sure that your customers receive the best in auction broadcasting, and that your sale won’t miss any bids! If a DVA representative hasn’t already requested it, please be certain to provide your internet service provider information including company contact info, internet type (DSL, Cable, Broadband, Etc), connection location, and upload and download speed. Upload and download speed measures the strength and consistency of your internet signal-a minimum of 500 kb/sec upload and 500 kb/sec download is suggested. In order to measure this, simply log on to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and click the name of the city nearest you. You will then see a red ball run along the track, measuring download speed. A steady, strong signal will cause the ball to move fluidly-if it is jerky or stops please let your DVA booking rep know. After the download speed is measured, the ball will then return on the track, measuring upload speed. In order to accurately measure this important value, we usually take at least 3 tests from that location. You can then email the average upload and download speeds to email@example.com. Also be sure to contact your internet provider to allow DVA to have access to your account in order to find out if there is something that can be done to maximize the internet service for your sale.
Email a pdf of your catalog to firstname.lastname@example.org for your sale listing. Please identify it with your sale name in the subject line.
We know that it’s safe and easy to buy on DVA-but it’s important to communicate this to your buyers. Please use these instructions in your sale catalog with a DVAuction logo (provided below).
