All items must be paid for in full within 5 days, and picked up within 10 days, of the auction closing date; this includes Sundays and Holidays. Items not paid for or picked up within these deadlines are considered abandoned and will be relisted; without a refund if payment has been made. Please know that this policy is strictly enforced. If an extension is needed you must notify us by email only at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the applicable deadline. Abusing this policy is grounds for terminating a bidders account. Verbal requests for extensions are not accepted.
BID WITH CARE: Items in this auction may be overstocks or returns, new or used, perfect or broken. We share what we know about each item in pictures, titles or descriptions but we don't always know, don't test most items, and don't accept returns, exchanges or offer refunds. If you have not previewed an item (physically inspected it in person) and must make an assumption about that item before bidding, assume it is broken unless the description states otherwise; the item is probably fine, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.
A proxy bid is the highest amount you are willing to pay for an auction item.
In response to other bids, the auction system will automatically increase your bid in the smallest increment possible (up to your proxy bid amount) in order to maintain your lead position.
To get a proxy bid you simply enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay into the bid form just as you would any other bid. If your bid is more than one bidding increment above the current high bid you will get a proxy bid unless another bidder has a proxy bid in place that is higher than the amount you enter.
At the end of the auction, the winning bidder pays only the lowest winning bid possible. That means that you can win an auction item at a price less than your proxy bid amount.
Your proxy bid amount is kept confidential from other bidders.
You can lower or delete a proxy bid by entering a lower amount.
Note: After watching hundreds of auctions and talking to thousands of bidders, we think using proxy bids in your bidding strategy works best for most people. It eliminates some of the pressure and reduces the risk of "sniping", where other bidders slip in slightly higher bids in the last seconds of bidding.
You now have a proxy bid.
You can raise or lower your proxy bid at any time by entering a new amount.
If you wish to remove your proxy bid you can do so by entering an amount equal to the current bid into the bid form.
