Help & FAQ
Anything from account registration to user login.
- Enterprise & Elite, what's the difference?
Once a user has successfully registered on our platform they will have instant bidding access to both Enterprise Sales and Elite Sales
There are, however, some key differences between both sections:
This is our self-managed platform for sellers, meaning all listings are in a single-lot format and without any input from the Pedigree Sales team.
- Listings often have a reserve price
- The seller has listed all content independently
This is our fully-managed platform for sellers, geared towards pedigree herd sales where all lots in a sale will close in a sequential format.

- Why am I not receiving any emails?
If you are not receiving expected site emails, please check the following:
- Check your junk mail folder or spam filter for the missing emails.
- Make sure that your email address, in your account settings, is entered correctly.
- Verify that your email client, such as Outlook, is not in “offline” mode.
- If you use a POP3 connection to retrieve your email, please verify that the emails were not downloaded to a different computer.

- How do I change the email address tied to my account?
You can change your email address by editing your account details within your “My Account” area.
- Why do I get a warning message that my username is invalid?
Every user must select a username for their account. The username can only contain letters, numbers, underscores, and hyphens. We recommend replacing all [spaces] with either an underscore or hyphen.
Incorrect: MY Username
Or, it says that the username selected is already in use.
Usernames are unique. Two users cannot share the same username. If you get a notice during registration that your username is already in use, you will need to select a different username.
- Why does it say that my email address is already in use?
If you get a notice that your email address is already in use when creating an account, it means that you have already created an account with us at some point. If you do not remember your login information, please enter your email address into the forgotten password form and you will be able to reset your password and log in to your account.

To remove an item from your watch
To remove an item from your watch list, simply click on the solid heart icon. Alternitavely you can navigate to My Account >> Bidding >> Watching to see all items in your watchlist.
- Can I contact the seller before placing a bid?
It's easy to send a public question to any seller on Pedigree Sales.
Each listing has an "Ask a question" section where logged-in users can post a question to the seller about the listing in question.
Once your question has been posted, the seller will be notified via email and asked to respond.
Users will only be identified by their registered username.
- Can I cancel or change my bid amount after submitting?
Your bid is a contract between you and the listing creator. If you have the highest bid you will enter into a legally binding purchase contract and this can not be changed or withdrawn.
We have made the bidding process completely transparent and require all bidders to confirm their bid before submitting.
- How do I know if I have won an auction?
If you have the final winning bid once an auction has ended you will receive an email from us congratulating you on the sale with next steps.
To see all of your won auctions, navigate to My Account >> Bidding >> Won
Here you can Submit feedback, View the listing, and Checkout (depending on the seller's payment options)
- What is a proxy bid?
Put simply, a proxy bid is your maximum bid price.
Our auctions will always increase in the bid increments selected by the seller.
When you place a proxy bid, the system will bid incrementally for you up to your maximum (proxy) bid. Your maximum bid is kept a secret, only you can see what your maximum bid or proxy bid is.
To place a proxy bid, use the + icon to increase your bid to whatever your maximum bid is.
You will then see your bid increase to the next bid increment and not to your maximum bid.
- Why does the auction finish time keep changing?
To prevent bid sniping (where users try to cheat the system by placing last-second bids) our system will increase the timer by 60 seconds whenever a bid is placed in the last remaining minute.
We ask all of our users to please reframe from entering last-second bids. These bids may not reach the server on time if the internet connection is not sufficient.
- How can I sell my livestock on Pedigree Sales Elite?
We are always happy to invite new breeders on to our Elite auction platform. If you have a pedigree herd and would like to enjoy all the benefits of a fully managed, marketed, & promoted auction sale day.
