The customer support for SAE is amazing! I love that the software is simple and sophisticated.

2017-06-05

I received the student discount.

Pros

I love that the price for the software is a flat monthly fee, with no extra added commission. That was a huge selling point for me. I love that this is an independent service and software, and that I was not in a contract.

Cons

Also, when I invoiced the items, the invoice printed that it added "15% buyers premium" but the math worked out to be 20% buyers premium.

Customer support is exceptional - very nice and incredibly responsive to inquiries and suggestions!

2017-11-29

This is a great company that treats their clients well.

Pros

When we call with issues, the staff treats us like we are their best client and work diligently and quickly to resolve our issues.

Cons

The only issue we have had has been with the dynamic bidding ending where it won't extend the bidding if the next bid is under the minimum bid increments. We have, however, made this suggestion and hope to see changes with the next update.

Great folks to work with....they have been very helpful to me and my company

2018-04-25

It is changing the way I conduct a lot of my business

Pros

This is only on-line auction engine I have ever used and have no other to use for comparison. But I have found no reason to try another auction engine. Their support staff have been very helpful any time I've ever called or had a problem.....and I always get to talk to a live representative.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve that can be difficult or easy depending upon your technology experience.

Disappointed

2017-03-04

Three weeks later I called back and cancelled my account because no one got back to me, and I didn't trust the software.

Paul,

We're very sorry about the bid extension feature not behaving as expected. While this would be unacceptable in any circumstance, it is especially so in an absolute auction like yours involving such large values. While we know this is of small comfort to you, your reporting of this issue did allow us to pinpoint and correct what turned out to be a very rare occurrence triggered only by a very specific sequence of events.

Should you wish to continue in some capacity, we would be happy to offer you six free months of using our platform, and hopefully in that time we can earn your confidence back.

Fantastic experience - the customer service is exceptional!

2018-05-29

Pros

Great auction site! I would highly recommend it. A live person almost always answers the phone and helps with whatever problem you are experiencing. I can't wait to use them again for next year's auction.

Cons

Also, some of the people who wanted to bid found setting up an account to be confusing.
