How Can I Add a Location to My Lot Descriptions in Proxibid?

Locations can be quickly added to Lot Descriptions in Wavebid and then exported to Proxibid. This is helpful when items needed to be picked up at different locations and those locations need to be visible to Proxibid bidders.

Add Locations to Lots                                                                              

First, the location information will need to be added to the lots (if it has not already been done).

  1. Navigate to the applicable auction from the Dashboard, then select Auction > Edit Settings.
  2. Under the Auction Attributes tab, check the box to the right of the List Item Locations Per Lot attribute.                         AddLoctoLots3.jpg

Once the locations have been added to the lots, a spreadsheet will need to be created. This spreadsheet can be created from an original catalog import, an export of the catalog, or by downloading a .CSV copy of the Auction Preview.

The spreadsheet should contain the Lot Number, Lot Description, and Location columns. No other columns are needed. The spreadsheet will need to be saved as a .CSV (comma-separated value) file type.

Once the spreadsheet has been saved, it can be imported. When mapping columns during the import, the Description and Location columns should both be mapped to the Wavebid Description column header. The Append to Previous box to the right of the Location column must also be checked. 


It is only necessary to map the Lot Number, Lot Description, and Location columns. No other columns need to be mapped at this time. For more information on mapping columns, see Importing Catalogs.

Once the import is complete, click the Preview Auction button to confirm changes appear as desired. The catalog can then be exported to Proxibid.
