5/12/2013 New Live Bidding Screen We are testing a new live bidding screen. To use this simply log in with your Client Code and Password.

A Live Auction link will be come available on the home page below the current auction image ten minutes before the auction starts. Just click the link and you are ready to go.

The pop-up window displays the last lot sold, the current lot and the next two lots. A bid button will be available below the current lot number. Click this to bid the amount on the button. The button disappears when you have the top bid or when bids are no longer being accepted.

Lots you have placed bids on are displayed in a bold font.

This appears to work well on Chrome, Iphones and Androids. It is currently not working on Firefox or Internet Explorer.

26/8/2012 We are Moving During the period of August 31 to September 3 we will be moving to Level 2, 170 Queens Street. All our other contact details remain the same. There will be some downtime to our website during this period but this should be limited to August 31.
22/4/2012 New Datestamp Search Function Victorian Datestamp Subscribers now have a new search function which allows them to search by the actual datestamp inscription. Wild card searching is available with a '^' representing any number of charcaters and a '\' = one character. Arc measurements, diameters and datestamp year can also be entered to help narrow down the search.

Subscribers will find this new feature on the far right of the Welcome line when they are in the Victorian Post Office List.

10/3/2009 Auction 90 Delayed Over the past few weeks PPA has undergone significant disruption as a result of the recent fires in the Yarra Ranges area. We have decided to postpone Auction 90 which will now be held on the 19th of April.

Here at PPA we all appreciate your support during these difficult times & we look forward to having a fantastic auction ready for you in April.

24/2/2009 Fires Causing Disruption The fires at Upwey caused us to evacuate yesterday afternoon and our stock is still offsite. However for the time being we are functioning again although in a limited capacity. Hopefully after next weekend everything will be a bit more stable.
The important thing is that everyone and all the stock is safe.
1/11/2008 New Symbol for Covers All cover lots will now be identified with the * symbol in the Type column. This will be followed by our normal type symbols for mint & used.
8/9/2008 Larger Images for Varieties The standard size for images of plate flaws has been increased from 300dpi to 600 dpi. This will ensure that even quite small varieties will be able to be seen clearly.
13/6/2008 Reference Library We frequently get asked about which books to use as references, so we have generated a list of the 400+ books in our library. Simply select Reference Tools in the top left menu and then select Our Reference Library. We hope that this will help you see what books are available. Later on we will provide a search tool to enable you to just view the books of particular interest to you.
12/6/2008 FAQ At last we have created an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page on our website. Simply select Reference Tools in the top left menu and then select Frequently Asked Questions. There are just a few at the moment but they will expand over time.
25/4/2008 Thumbnail Display A new option has been provided in My Details to turn off the display of image when the catlogue and retail lists are displayed.
9/6/2007 Images In Descriptions Thumbnail images are now being displayed with lot and retail descriptions. When a single image is shown simply click on the image to see an enlarged picture. When the thumbnail displays multiple images simply click on the lot number button to be transferred to a screen which displays all the images associated with the lot.
9/6/2007 Goto Button Moved We have moved the Goto button to the right of its data field on most screens. This places it in a more intuitive position and therefore makes it easier to use.
You are now able to enter the lot number and then tab and enter to execute the goto function rather than needing to enter the lot number and then move the mouse to click the Goto button.
We will apply this logic to all similar buttons when we next do a general review of all screens..
27/5/2007 My Bidsheet Improved 2 new functions have been added.
1. You can now add extra bids onto your bidsheet without going back to the catalogue pages.
2. The new +5% button will automatically change your bid, on a specified lot, to 5% above the starting price.
28/2/2007 Change in Bid Status Emails PPA will now email you when you have been outbid for a lot. Emails will be generated once per day & you will only receive an email if you are no longer the highest bidder on a lot. The Email Changed Bid Status field in the My Details menu is available to turn this function off.
27/2/2007 Improved Navigation The lot and retail description lists now have Navigation and Control buttons at both the top & bottom of the screen to make it easier to use the website.
26/2/2007 Images Improved The camera icon has been replaced with a button on the lot number to view the description with images. Bids can also now be entered on this screen instead of having to go back to the list to enter bids. Navigation within both the Image Gallery & My Image Gallery screen has been significantly improved. [Read More]
25/2/2007 Return Button We have added a Return button to many screens to enable you to go back to the calling screen. For example if you are in the image gallery and go to the catalogue list a Return button will be on the list page to return you to the image gallery.
1/1/2007 Menu Changes We have re-named the following 2 submenu entries.

View By Collecting Interest within the Current Auction menu is now My Catalogue and View By Collecting Interest within the Retail Sales menu is now My Retail List.

30/11/2006 Invoice History After you login a new menu My Invoices will become available in the right menu. This list all invoices that have been created for you, including credits etc. By selecting the invoice number you will be able to see the full details of that invoice.
16/7/2006 Auction Progress This new pop-up window enables you to watch the auction selling in real-time.

It displays the last lot sold and the hammer price. The current lot being sold (highlighted in red) and the next lot to be sold are then displayed with their expected results and also advice as to whether bids are still being accepted. The window automatically refreshes itself every 5 seconds. [Read More]

4/7/2006 Bidding Changes We have introduced 2 new changes to the bidding. Firstly a new bid must be at least 3% more than the current top bid to be a new top bid. This ensure that a lot is always won by a fair amount.

Secondly, we will not sell a lot until all activity on that lot has stopped for at least 1 minute. This ensures that everyone has a chance to put in their last bids before the lot is actually sold.

30/5/2006 Image Gallery 'Auction - Image Gallery' is a new submenu in the Auction Menu. This enables you to scroll through all the lots which have images available. Click on the image for a full-size view or click on the lot number to go to the catalogue description.
29/5/2006 New Search Function 'Auction - Description Search' is a new submenu in the Auction menu. This enables you to search for specific words within each lot's description. While this does not provide wild card searching it does enable you to search for a wide combination of specific words. Select [Read More] for a full description on how get the most from this new feature. Remember we are more than happy to set your Search pattern up for you. [Read More]
4/1/2006 Victorian Datestamp Reference We have further enhanced our Reference Tools menu to make available all our Victorian datestamp information. There is an annual subscription fee but we have given everyone trial access to the post offices beginning with A to give you plenty of data to review.
Click for trial access [Read More]
29/11/2005 New Flaw Finder tool We have enhanced our Reference Tools menu to include a new feature called Flaw Finder. This enables you to see all the plated flaws in a particular area of a stamp. We have started with the Australian KGV 1½d Die II.
11/10/2005 Post Offfice Data Enhanced We have now added an Australia-wide list of Post Offices to our Post Office reference database. This allows you to search for POs when you don't know the state. Naturally we still provide the Filter and Goto functions to enable easy searching.
22/8/2005 T removed from Estimate In the past we have displayed a 'T' beside the estimates and price. However as all our lots have the same tax status this hase been removed. We will still add GST to any lots mailed to Australian addresses
22/8/2005 2 Minute Tour To help newcomers to our site, and those who just want to refresh their memories, we have introduced our 2 Minute Tour [Read More]
