The bi-weekly plains game auctions are integral to AWA’s success, and the market dominance in this area is supplemented by monthly auctions of more exotic game. This two-pronged approach will ensure that AWA remains the dominant player in plains game, but also sets it up to become a dominant player in the exotic game market.
AWA’s rapid growth now sees it selling more than a 1 000 plains game animals on a monthly basis. The dominance achieved in this arena is a result of identifying a gap in the market thus ‘looking after’ the smaller game breeders.
- Bid to Buy Game Sales: Lots are loaded on the website by either sellers or agents and is available to make a counteroffer on.
- Tender Game Auctions: Lots to be loaded by sellers or agents, where the allocated lot can be left on auction for a pre-set time. Buyers would have a few hours/days to place their bids.
- Real-Time Auctions: An entire auction to be set for a specific time, where the lots would stay open for a pre-set time, e.g., 5 minutes and buyers would bid against one another in real-time.
- Joint Co-operative auctions, where the auctioneer company, e.g., AWA would host a live auction. Buyers would pre-register and participate in a live auction against buyers attending the live auction.
