In order for stock to be listed on AuctionsPlus, they must be assessed by an accredited Assessor. Assessor Accreditation is attained by attending an AuctionsPlus Assessor School (either physical or digital) and completing parallel assessments with an accredited, training endorsed Assessor, and finally completing an Accreditation exam.
Attending a Training Course
Assessor Accreditations, and the maintaining, increasing or demoting of Assessor Status is at the discretion of AuctionsPlus.
Sharing of your Assessor code, or use of another Assessors user code to falsely complete assessments will result in an immediate 6 month suspension.
AuctionsPlus conduct an Annual Assessor Level Review at the end of the financial year.
Assessor Levels aim to incorporate qualitative measures as much as possible; levels are no longer dictated solely by throughput. Key measures include:
Our Assessor Level Requirements are:
Level 1 Accredited
If you have completed the required number of assessments in the previous twelve month period you may be elevated a level, or maintain your level. If you have not completed the required number of assessments, you may be downgraded.
The management of AuctionsPlus reserves the right to upgrade or downgrade assessors with consideration also given to buyer feedback, any claims of misdescription, and AuctionsPlus evaluation of an Assessor's performance.
At least one (1) assessment must be completed annually in order to keep your accreditation current. Failing to complete an assessment within a 12 month period will result in deactivation and you must apply to regain accreditation.
Accredited Assessors cannot complete parallel assessments to maintain their accreditation. Only assessments lodged and offered on the AuctionsPlus system in the Assessor’s own name will count towards maintaining their accreditation.
AuctionsPlus requirements for reactivating Assessor Accreditation vary depending on the timeframe that has passed since an active Accreditation was held. The requirements listed below are applicable per species.

AuctionsPlus is dedicated to ensuring positive transactions for all users of our platform. Agents who wish to market stock but are not Assessors will need to become Accredited Delivery Agents.
The Delivery Agent, rather than the Assessor, is typically the key contact for interested buyers, the highest bidder or purchaser, as well as the AuctionsPlus team, when stock are listed for sale. They handle pre-sale inquiries, discuss reserve price setting with their client, manage negotiations, handle transport and payment arrangements, and are the first port of call should anything go wrong.
They are just as critical as the Assessor in ensuring a positive outcome for both the buyer and their own client.
The nominated Delivery Agent will be able to manage all online aspects of the sale of a lot, including setting Reserve prices, accessing Buyer details, reoffering lots, updating results to Sold, and managing lots listed with the Buy Now option.
To become an Accredited Delivery Agent, you will need to complete a short online exam with a 100% pass mark. You will be provided feedback as each question is answered.
