There are no “take backs.” All bids placed on our website are legally binding. If you are the successful bidder, you enter into a legal contract to purchase the item and will be considered the buyer of the item. Please consider your bids carefully before placing them.
The ‘Buy Now’ option gives you the opportunity to purchase the item right away at a fixed price (or the ‘Buy Now’ price) without waiting for the auction to end. The ‘Buy Now’ option will be available on the item until bidding reaches or exceeds the Buy Now price.
All sales are final. There will be no exchange or refund. All values are approximate, and all items are sold “as is” and must be used before the expiry date unless otherwise stated.
At the request of a significant number of our donors and winners, we do not disclose the final auction price of closed items.
