I’m having problems logging in, what do I do?

When you first attempt to log in to the new website (released Nov 2019) your password from the old site won’t work due to the increased password security we’ve implemented.

To login you will need to click the “Reset Password” link below the password box, re-enter your email address and click Reset Password.

You will receive an email with a link allowing you to reset your password.

I’ve forgotten my password, what do I do?

You can use the reset password link on the main login pop up. Here you will prompted to re-enter your email address. We’ll then send you an email containing a link where you can reset a new password and log directly back in to the AuctionNews website.
