Successful bidders and buyers must pay us the applicable buyer’s premium.
Sellers acknowledge and agree that we will retain the buyer’s premium with respect to any lots sold via our services.
The buyer’s premium must be paid by credit or debit card through our designated payment services provider.
We may vary the amount of the buyer’s premium by updating these terms and conditions. If we vary the amount of the buyer’s premium, this will not affect any lots that are within an upcoming auction period, auction period or purchase now period.
Upon the submission of a bid, the buyer must provide the buyer’s payment card details to us, and we will reserve a deposit with respect to the buyer’s premium.
If the buyer wins an auction, or purchases a lot during a purchase now period, we will automatically deduct the buyer’s premium from the payment card provided.
Buyer’s premium payments are non-refundable, irrespective of whether a party subsequently cancels the underlying contract and irrespective of whether a party is entitled to, or receives, a refund in respect of such a contract.
If you are a consumer (that is, an individual acting wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession) you may have a right to cancel contracts entered into at a distance under the applicable distance selling laws. However, by agreeing to these terms and conditions, you agree that we may begin the provision of our services before the expiry of the usual 14-day post-contract cancellation period and you acknowledge that, as we will only receive payment of the buyer’s premium after we have fully performed our services, you will have no right to cancel the contract between us with respect to that payment, or to receive a refund of that payment under the applicable distance selling laws.
