Bidder's Guide to Online Auctions
- You don’t have to register to view the lots, but you MUST register to enable you to bid.
- The platform will not allow you to bid below the minimum bid for each lot unless the lot is to be sold without reserve (absolute auction); that is, there is no minimum price for that lot.
- To win an auction, you need to achieve the reserve price apart from being the highest bidder (except in cases of absolute auction, when the highest bidder wins the lot without doing more).
- Once you have won a lot, an invoice will be sent to your e-mail box and you can make payments for the goods following the advise given on the invoice.
- Please note that apart from the bid price, your invoice will also advise you to pay the Buyer’s Premium (which is 10% of the Bid Price and VAT for Personal Property and 5% of the Bid Price for Real Estate).
- A Buyer’s Premium is a percentage of the hammer price which is added to the final bid price, for example, if the hammer price or the amount the lot is sold for is N100 and there is a Buyer’s Premium of 10% on the lot, that means the sum of N10 being 10% for Buyer’s Premium will be added to the N100 hammer price to make the sum payable less VAT to be N110.
- In case of Real Estate, you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of 10% (Ten Percent) deposit immediately upon winning the bid and pay the balance sum of 90% on or before 7 (seven days) of winning the bid.
- The buyer will make arrangements for pick-up of the movable items after our firm has received full payment.
