- Bond Roberts only excepts Visa & Mastercard for payment.
31. Bidding and Buying.
- Bidders may bid on any Item at any time during an Auction
- It is illegal for you, or a family member, to bid on your own items in an auction. This is known as shill bidding and we have mechanisms in place to detect any occurrence of this.
- A bid is an irrevocable offer made by a Bidder to buy the listed Item
- If you are the successful Bidder you will have to pay fees in addition to the purchase price. Full details of the fees can be found in the FAQ and Buying Guide. See also clause 23.a for further details
- If a obvious incorrect amount has been lodged in error, contact [email protected] as soon as possible. If it does not interfere with the smooth running of the auction the company may consider retracting or reducing the bid to the highest bid amount at that point. Bids cannot otherwise be retracted. The company reserve the right to prevent the bidder from any future participation in Bond Roberts as a result of bid retraction
- Once the auction has ended, the winning bid cannot be retracted
- Bidders are responsible for ensuring that they have sufficient funds available to cover their bid(s). See also clause 23.b and 23.c.
- Bidders are required to conduct their own research and due diligence. All Items are sold on an “as is” basis
- If a Bidder’s bid is the highest bid on an Item at the end of an Auction, and is above the Seller’s reserve price, that bid shall be deemed to have been accepted by the company.
- The company shall be entitled to enforce the provisions of these Terms and Conditions and may pursue legal remedies against any user for non-performance of any of their respective obligations hereunder.
- Once a maximum bid amount is entered you are entering into an agreement that you are prepared to pay up to and including that amount once the auction has closed.
- Payment for Items may be made by the following methods;
- See section 11
- Such other method as we accept from time to time
- Legal title in and to items shall transfer to Bidders only upon receipt of all sums due to the company.
- The Buyer will cover variations of up to +/-3% of the quoted exchange rate. Any variation greater than +/-3% between the quoted exchange rate and bank sell exchange rate at date of invoice shall be applied to the Buyer’s account resulting in an extra cost in the event of a less favourable rate or a credit in the event of a more favourable rate. The Buyer accepts the bank sell exchange rate applicable at the date of the invoice as notified by the Seller.
32. Starting Bids and Reserves.
- The “Starting Bid” is the agreed upon opening bid price for an auction lot. At the start of an Auction, bidders must place a bid at, or higher, than the Starting Bid. Unless otherwise indicated, auction lots will also include a Reserve. A “Reserve” is the minimum purchase price that the Seller is willing to accept for the lot; however, the exact Reserve will not be published.
- Until the Reserve is met, the listing will show the message “Reserve not met.” When you bid on a lot with a reserve price, if your maximum bid meets or exceeds the reserve, the current bid will automatically increase to meet that reserve price.
- For example, if an auction lot has a reserve of $100, and Bidder A bids $10, then the current bid will stay at $10 and display “Reserve not met.” If Bidder B places a bid on the same lot for $150, the current bid will move up to $100 (the amount of the reserve) and the reserve is met. If nobody else places a bid, Bidder B will win at the price of $100.
- If you place a bid on a lot X with a reserve, and your maximum bid is less than the reserve, then your current bid will increase to display your maximum bid.
- For Example, Lot X has a reserve of $100 and a starting bid of $50, and a bidder places a bid of $75, then the current bid will move up to $75 Since the reserve is not yet met in this scenario, your maximum bid would not be considered a winning bid. A lot must reach or exceed the reserve in order for it to be eligible for sale to the highest bidder.
33. Lot Retraction by Seller.
- The Seller cannot withdraw his or her lot after it has been approved by an administrator.
34. Completion of purchases and delivery.
- The term “current bid” as used herein shall refer to the highest price at which any lot is bid on before the auction ends.
- The purchase price due from the Buyer shall be the aggregate of the winning bid plus the Buyer’s Premium, - winning bid $100 plus buyer’s premium at for example 15% is $15.00 - total $115.00 payable (Updated: 15th January 2021).
- The person making the highest acceptable bid received prior to the end of the auction date and time (subject to any reserve being met) shall become the Buyer, who will assume full risk and responsibility of the lot from the time of the ending of the Auction.
- The Buyer will receive an email notification directly following the auction end time requesting that he or she sign into his or her account and select post-sale preferences.
- The Buyer must make full payment for the winning lots at the conclusion of the auction

35. Risk and Title to Goods.
- In accordance with the terms of clause 31.m title to all auction items shall remain with the Seller until payment in full
- Notwithstanding any indication to the contrary risk of damage or loss to the items shall remain with the Seller who should ensure that he has adequate insurance cover until payment is received in full.
- At that point, legal title will transfer to the Buyer as will risk and the Buyer must ensure that he or she has adequate insurance cover in place in relation to the Items in those circumstances.
- Without prejudice to any other provisions in this agreement, the Company accepts no responsibility whatsoever, to the maximum extent allowed by law, for the safe storage or preservation of any Items whilst in its temporary custody for the purposes of the auction or shipping
- Bond Roberts is not responsible for any part of the shipping process that takes place between the buyer and seller.
- If the Seller ships the item in accordance with the post-sale agreement the responsibility for the successful delivery, loss, damage, or confiscation (irrespective of the confiscating authority or its jurisdiction) of the item lies with the Buyer and mail carrier.
- If the seller does not adhere to the terms of the post-sale agreement which have been agreed with the buyer, then responsibility for any loss or damage to or confiscation of the item in transit may lie with the seller.
- All sellers should retain evidence where reasonable (such as copies of packing documents etc.) that can show that they have adhered to the terms of the post sale handling agreement.
