Auctions are divided up by category and subcategory. The main category is found on the front page, as well as via "Ongoing auctions" in the top menu. It is also possible to search for objects by using the search function in the top menu.
When you have found an interesting object, click on the object to have more information brought up.
The starting price is the price at which the seller has published the auction. Any possible bids must be equal to or higher than the starting price.
The current bid is the highest registered bid. If during the last hour of the auction a new highest bid is received, then the bidding period will be extended by 5 minutes.
Duration of the auction
The duration of the auction concerns how long an auction will be open for bids. The duration of the auction can be 7, 14 or 30 days.
The minimum price is the lowest price the seller will accept for the object. The minimum price is not visible to other users. If the seller not set a minimum price, the starting price will be the minimum price for the object.
Buy Now price
If the seller has arranged for a Buy Now price, then the purchaser may choose to purchase the object at this price. This would then be the final purchase sum. We should point out that a commission is charged to the seller and a brokering fee to the purchaser.
For auctions that have been won or when "Buy Now" has been used, the purchaser will receive a combined invoice for the purchase sum and brokering fee. See prices for further information about the brokering fee.
An anonymized bid log is displayed for all auctions. A complete bid log will be disclosed upon request.
