Emails and Alerts

What types of alerts can I sign up for?

Free email alerts make sure you never miss your chance at auction. Just save your searches and we'll send an alert when your favorite items are listed, or sign up for auctioneer alerts and we'll tell you when they post a new auction.

To set up search alerts for items, areas, or categories:
  1. Log into your AuctionZip account, or sign up for free!
  2. Click My Account in the upper right of the page.
  3. Click Account from the list that displays.
  4. Click Item/Area/Category Alerts.
  5. Enter your search criteria by using as many of the fields as you need – including radius, zip code, keywords, and categories.
  6. Click Create New Search to save this search and be notified via email when new auctions are posted that match your search alert.
  7. When you run a search through the yellow toolbar at the top of AuctionZip, you'll also see a prompt to save that search as an alert.
To set up an alert for an auctioneer:
  1. Browse our Auctioneer Directory for the auctioneer you're interested in or to find a new favorite auctioneer near you!
  2. Click their company name to view their auctioneer profile page.
  3. Click the box that says Auction Alerts: add auctioneer and be notified via email when they post a new auction.

How often will I receive email alerts?

After setting up free alerts in your AuctionZip account, our searches will run overnight and a link to any auctions that meet your criteria will be sent to you in a single email every morning.
