Why Is My Account on Hold? artelino auction are no hoax events.
Whenever you submit a new credit card or change your payment method, your account is automatically set to status HOLD - no matter if you are a first-time bidder or a regular client since 2001 or the President of the United States of America. We verify all payment submissions personally and by hand before you can bid. Thus we make sure that no hoax bidders or people who cannot pay roam around in our auctions.
While your account is on HOLD, you can do everything on our web site except for bidding. And as we are a small mom and pop company and need some sleep every now and then, clearing your account may sometimes take a few hours. Have some patience and enjoy an auction in which you can be sure to nearly 100% of not being outbid by hoax bidders or people who refuse to pay at auction end. Where else can you get this?
