PLACING YOUR BID
You can manually place bids through our website or via our app, or you can enter a commission bid and the system will automatically bid on your behalf up to your maximum amount, but only if someone bids against you.
If you are outbid instantly this implies there is a higher maximum bid from another bidder. You will be notified that you have been outbid via email or push notification immediately after placing your bid.
If you are outbid later you will receive an email or push notification letting you know that you have been outbid and inviting you to bid again.
If two bidders leave the same maximum bid and that increment wins the lot, the bidder who placed their bid first will win the lot.
We can assist with logistics by contacting shipping agents who will provide a quote on your behalf.
All shipping costs are at the buyers’ expense.
Our preferred payment method is by EFT/Wire transfer.
Visa and Mastercard payments are also accepted however a 1.5% service fee will be added to the invoice for card payments.
