Philaton defines its activity as an interactive internet portal for professional stamp auctioneers. It is born and managed by a group of philatelists with commercial activity including on line auctions experience from the beginning of this sector. They also have their own stamp business and continue in permanent contact with market reality. is the domain name of a portal with economic and technical activity in different countries in the American and European Continents. The modern internet technology allows us to do so, achieving a more efficient and cost effective organization. We have our own team of software engineers and philatelic consultants to help with any matters that may rise. All programs are developed by us and constantly updated to hopefully avoid the technical imperfections.


Philatelic approach

At Philaton we understand philately is a valuable hobby and a passion. Our goal is to provide a simple, easy to use, friendly website with the latest advanced technology where dealers chosen by us organize real stamp auctions on-line; and both collectors and dealers can meet with confidence. It is 100% handled by philatelists for philatelists. We feel that as we trust our health to the doctor, or deposit our money with the good banker, you also want to feel as safe as possible with your stamp purchases to avoid unexpected disappointments.
