How to buy

  • Monitor the auction continuously
    The auctions can last 3, 5, 7, 10, 14, 21 or 30 days. Buyers can bid any time for any auction, except their own. When someone makes a bid that exceeds your own bid you will receive a notification by e-mail. E-mail does not always work perfectly. Besides, the highest bid can be made during the last minutes of trading. Thus, to win the auction, you should monitor the progress continuously! The Bid-Agent can be an alternative. Your maximum bid will remain invisible to all auction participants until the auction closes and our Bid-Agent will work hard to ensure that you win the auction, as long as the bids of other buyers remain lower than yours. Should someone make a bid equal to yours, the buyer who made such a bid earlier will be considered the winner of the auction.

  • Carefully read the item description
    If any of the description details are unclear to you, find out all the necessary information before making a bid. You will be able to contact the Seller with your questions. Remember, when you make a bid, you agree to buy the item at the specified price.

  • Be careful
    It is necessary to study thoroughly the reliability of your partner. Review the feedback left by other users in the Rating section. The number in parenthesis next to user login is the user rating. The feedback is left by the buyers and sellers who have dealt with this seller. The feedbacks that you receive from other users are available for viewing in My Account section.

  • Be polite to other users
    Politeness paves a way to trust. The trust vested with you on the part of other users allows you to trade faster and more successfully. Follow the ethics code when communicating by e-mail, and your partners will treat you with respect.

  • Make only realistic bids
    If you decide to take part in an auction, we recommend that you determine the maximum price you are willing to pay for the item. Make only such bids, which you can afford to pay.

  • Save the information about the auction
    If you win the auction, you will receive an e-mail with the name of the seller, her/his e-mail address and telephone number, along with the name, time, date, and the closing price of the auction. We recommend that you keep this information until the transaction is completed.

  • Contact the seller
    After you win the auction contact the seller as soon as possible by e-mail and by phone. Remember that it is hard to judge about the honesty and the reliability of your counterparty solely from the e-mail communication.
