AuctionsAt the seller's option, auctions last
1, to 14 days from the listing of the item. Bidding automatically terminates
at the end of the auction.
When the auction ends, the seller and
high-bidder are notified via email. Auction results are also available for
everyone to examine. These results indicate the final bid price and the seller's
and high-bidder's email addresses. The complete bidding history is also available
as a link from the page showing the item's description. The high-bidder and
seller should contact each other within 3 business days of the end of the
auction. A seller may contact the next-highest bidder if the seller is unable
to conclude the transaction with the high-bidder within 3 business days.
Therefore, high-bidders may lose their place as winning bidder if the high-bidder
does not contact the seller within 3 business days of the end of the
Before you make a bid, you should verify
the item you're bidding on and the seller's honesty as best you can. If you
have any questions about the item, email your questions to the seller. Make
sure you clearly understand the shipping terms (who pays?), payment terms
(can you pay by personal check? credit card? and so on) and other
You can place a bid when you are viewing
the item you would like to bid on. Please bid the maximum amount you are
willing to pay for the item. If necessary, bids will be automatically made
on your behalf as other bidders increase the bid price, up to your maximum
amount or the necessary preset bid increment to outbid other bidders. (All
bidding is done with bid increments.)
By placing a bid, you are placing a
legally-binding and irrevocable offer to purchase the item at any price up
through your maximum bid amount. If your bid is accepted by the seller, then
you are legally obligated to complete the transaction. Your failure to complete
the transaction is a breach of the User Agreement and may be legally actionable
by the seller. You must provide your Username with your bid.
Once you make and confirm a bid, you
cannot retract it except in exceptional circumstances. Exceptional circumstances
include the seller materially changing the description of the item after
your bid and clear typographical errors. Exceptional circumstances do not
include bidding or winning a bid on another (perhaps similar) item, not having
the budget to pay for an item, changing your mind, and so on. Please bid
Our system will automatically email you,
subject to the reliability of email, if your maximum bid is outbid by another
bidder. However, you might be outbid minutes or seconds before the close
of an auction, in which case you may not have the opportunity to place a
new bid. Therefore, you should bid the maximum amount you would be willing
to pay for the item when you make your first bid.
Buying an Item
Call or email the seller to clarify the
terms of shipping and insurance if you have not done so before the bid. Negotiate
with the seller for escrow, sales tax, shipping fees, and payment terms.
Selling an Item
It's fun and easy to start your own auction.
Simply fill out the form. Provide a short, descriptive title and provide
a complete description of the item. You cannot use HTML tags in the title,
but you may use HTML in your item's description. This means that you can
link to pictures if you choose. All content linked to the item description
must comply with the User Agreement.
You might want to consider setting the
minimum bid for your item a little lower than you think the item will eventually
be sold for, just to get the auction going. If your minimum bid is too high,
people may not bid. However, keep in mind that the minimum price you specify
indicates the minimum amount you will accept to sell the item.
You specify the bidding increment. Try
to keep it low to encourage more people to bid.
By auctioning an item, you are irrevocably
(except as described below) and legally committing to accept the high bid
for the item (or the highest-bidder who does not renege). If you receive
one or more bids above the minimum price you stated you would be willing
to accept, then you are legally obligated to complete the transaction. Your
failure to complete the transaction is a breach of the User Agreement and
may be legally actionable by one or more of the bidders.
The seller has the right to cancel the
transaction with any user with whom they are uncomfortable completing a
You may place any merchandise up for
auction that you have the right to sell, so long as it complies with the
User Agreement. Please list your item in an appropriate category.
You can advertise the existence of your
auction with the URL:
where CATEGORY is the category sent to
you in the email confirmations and where ITEM NUMBER is the item number assigned
to your item. In the description
of your item, you should clarify any additional terms or expenses associated
with the item, such as who will bear shipping and insurance expenses.
We and your bidders expect you to be
truthful in your listings. Disappointed buyers are likely to leave you negative
Bidders or potential bidders may email
you during the course of the auction. It's good business to respond to all
Notice of End of Auction/Account
Status Once the auction is over,
you will be notified via email. However, if you are bidding on an item, you
are responsible for checking back at Tat2 Net Auction Bid to see if you have
won. If you do not receive notice and think you are the top bidder, you need
to check the auction status at Tat2 Net Auction Bid for the auction results.
After the auction has ended the top bidder needs to contact the seller within
three days. Likewise, you can check your account at any time online. The
notice is a courtesy that we do for you.
Some guidelines regarding pricing:
First, we encourage sellers to set the
minimum bid for their auction at the lowest fair price at which they are
willing to sell their item.
Second, a seller may employ a reserve
price auction. This allows the seller to set a price below which he or she
does not agree to sell the item.
Auctions may be run with reserve prices.
The reserve price is the lowest price at which a seller is willing to sell
an item. The reserve price is not disclosed to bidders. A seller might specify
a reserve price if he or she is unsure of the real value of the item and
would like to be able to refuse to sell the item if the market value is below
a certain price. During an auction, an annotation will be displayed in the
item information screen if the seller has specified a reserve price.
The seller specifies the reserve price
when he or she lists an item. This price should be above the minimum bid
price. The auction begins at the minimum bid price. When a bidder's maximum
bid is equal to or greater than the reserve price, the item's current price
is raised to the reserve price. At this time, the item information will indicate
the reserve price has been met. The bidder is also notified that his or her
bid met the reserve.

your transaction. Most fraud complaints tend to be misunderstandings about
the product, shipping terms, or shipping addresses. You should clarify all
of these elements before you bid, and definitely before you send money. However,

report it to the authorities if it happens in our community.
