Under auction law and our terms and conditions, when the hammer drops or the lot closes, both buyer and seller are financially obligated to complete the transaction. This is part of the Caveat Emptor clause of auctions; when the hammer drops, or the lot closes the bidder bought it period, whether they want it or not. A transaction in an auction is treated differently than retail transactions in that the buyer is obligated to complete the payment of the items whether or not they take possession. If they don’t take possession and you resell the items for less than the original invoice owed, then you can send them to collections for the difference, if any. In some cases, sellers/consignors simply take back the items and keep them. An auction company can then send the entire balance owed on the invoice due to the fact they will not be able to re-auction the items and it is a total loss eligible for collection action.
Most online auctions run 7-10 days. Larger auctions with over 500 lots may last 10-15 days. The length of auctions is really up to you.
A couple of things could cause your bidding ability to be disabled. The system automatically disables bidders who have not paid an outstanding invoice. Contact the individual seller to take care of your outstanding balance. Once we verify your account details via a phone conversation with you, we will reinstate your account.
Our security system also blocks bidders who have placed an excess number of bids. This is to prevent fraudulent bidding and is simply a preventative measure. Once you take care of the invoices, we will verify your account details via a phone conversation with you and reinstate your account.
