Become an affiliate auctioneer.
Our philosophy is simple: Provide our bidders with the auctions they want and the exceptional buying experience they have come to expect.
Through this philosophy and thousands of auctions, K-BID.com has experienced incredible growth fueled by our network of high quality independent affiliates. We are currently expanding our affiliate network and are interested in developing affiliate relationships in your area.
What is an independent affiliate?
Affiliates are business entities that use K-BID.com as a venue to present online auctions to a large audience of buyers. Affiliates are responsible for all aspects of their business; from adhering to state and federal laws, collecting and submitting sales tax and contracting with and paying consignors. Since these businesses are not agents or franchises of K-BID they are not constrained by sales quotas or territories and can operate their business when and where they choose.
Affiliates manage the auction process from start to finish and are typically compensated on a commission/fee basis that is agreed upon with the seller. Affiliates are responsible for developing their asset supply lines and seller relationships. These relationships vary by affiliate, but we have seen the primary sources of assets are:
- Accepting consignments for one or more sellers and hosting the auction at the affiliate business location.
- Contracting and conducting on-site auctions at the seller’s location.
- Procuring their own supply line of assets to sell and using K-BID.com as an outlet for these assets.
