Online auction website eBay’s has launched a new service – eBay’s Live Auctions – which opens the doors of traditional brick-and-mortar auction houses to online buyers.

From anywhere in the world, eBay shoppers now have the same access to auction merchandise as those bidding in person on the auction room floor.

“Through the launch of live auctions, eBay is reimagining the time-honored auction house experience,” said Gene Cook, general manager of emerging verticals for eBay Marketplaces. “We know that people want new ways to peruse and purchase fine art and collectibles, and eBay’s live auctions are a best-in-class, inspiring shopping experience that delivers on this at a variety of price points.”

Inventory is sold directly by hundreds of traditional auction houses, including premier partners such as Doyle New York, Freeman’s, Garth’s Auctions and Swann Auction Galleries.

All items are backed by the eBay Money Back Guarantee.

Whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind print or an exquisite painting, eBay’s live auctions brings premium art and collectibles from world-class auction houses right to your fingertips.
