With virtual auctioning, as with image auctioning, the product does not appear physically in front of the clock. Traders buy cut flowers and plants based on grower’s information and supporting photographic material.
Virtual auctioning uses a projection screen that does not appear in the auction room. Instead, customers make their purchases in the auction room at a workstation called the Flink (flexible buying) or by using Remote Buying.
There are six virtual clocks at Aalsmeer.
