BNO Benefits





WHEN WE STARTED was founded in 2013, and held its first auction in the fall of 2014.



BNO was created as a solution to a geographical problem: Live auctions occur all over the world, but getting to them is usually a costly and time-consuming proposition. The simple thought was – what if bidders could experience all the advantages of a traditional brick-and-mortar auction without having to leave their homes? By recreating the pulse-pounding experience of a live auction online, BNO makes that happen – all in a transparent, trustworthy and ethical format. As a result, bidders all over the world can now bid with 100% confidence, all from the comfort of their homes.



At BNO, we believe in assembling the right team of experienced, passionate and committed professionals to deliver our vision. Learn more about us here.







Show Your Support for Gun-Free Commerce

A Message From Our Founder, Nick Nassiri:

"As the founder of the world’s first live streamed online auction company, Bid Network Online (, I am a staunch advocate of gun control. To champion gun control efforts, we developed the Gun-Free Pledge and accompanying Gun-Free Seal so that websites, including, could distinguish themselves as businesses and organizations not selling or promoting guns online.
"As one small step to a more peaceful and humane world, all like-minded businesses are invited to take the Gun-Free Pledge and download and display the Gun-Free Seal. All businesses that join myself and in this pledge will be listed on this website with links to their websites. Thank you in advance for taking this small step toward a more gun-free world."

We're proud of our out-of-the-box thinking.

Oh, sure, you could buy from or sell to any old online or brick and mortar auction. But our research (and gut feelings) tell us you’d welcome an auction that was new, exciting, and different. And by different we mean, of course, better. How are we new, exciting, different, and better? We thought you’d never ask. You can get the full story on our About Us page. But for now, allow us to offer you ten reasons that back up our claims. Do we expect you to simply take our word for it? No way! In fact, we’d greatly prefer that you find out for yourselves. So, after reading our differences below, and checking out our About Us page, create a free account. Then, you can RSVP for one of our upcoming auctions. Or, contact us with something you’d like to offer for sale. We’re confident you’ll thank yourself—and us—for doing so.
