WE DO ACCEPT PAYPAL
AND CHECKS, VISA MASTERCARD, MONEY ORDERS.
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL US AFTER THE AUCTION. WE WILL CONTACT YOU WITH ALL PAYMENT INFO. ON RARE OCCASION, THE EBAY SOFTWARE MAY GIVE INCORRECT INFORMATION REGARDING THE WINNING BIDDER OF A LOT. THE AUCTIONEERS WILL DETERMINE THE WINNING BIDDER OF EACH LOT. ESTIMATES SERVE ONLY TO FACILITATE EBAY SOFTWARE We do not want to provide estimates, ebay’s software requires it, so we just throw in some numbers which have no bearing on any value. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE EBAY IS NOT AN ACCURATE DETERMINANT OF THE SELLING TIME FOR THIS ITEM. CALL US AT 1.800.252.1501 FOR A MORE ACCURATE ESTIMATE. Or, figure one lot per minute from the starting time and you will have a good estimate of the selling time. PLEASE, PLEASE NOTE: ebay’s USUAL POLICY OF “The first placed takes precedence in case of a tie bid amount” CANNOT, BY THE VERY NATURE OF THEIR SYSTEM, APPLY TO LIVE BIDDING AUCTIONS.. We ARE NOT given the high bid amount and so we have no way of knowing when, due to bidding patterns, your high bid and the current floor bid are the same. If ebay does not send another signal to bid, the item is sold to the highest bidder. So, if you place a bid of $1000.00 a month before the sale and the pattern of bidding ends with an in house bidder at $1000.00, ebay does not send us a signal that $1000.00 was bid previously. Instead they indicate there are no more bids. Inquire with ebay for explanation of this and other potential issues such as the appearance that a live bidder is bidding against themselves. Or read the bid history page for explanation. MOST LIVE BIDDING IS A HUGE SUCCESS, BUT THERE ARE BUGS IN THE SYSTEM.
PLEASE READ THE TERMS FOR MORE INFORMATION OR CALL US AT 800.252.1501. THANK YOU!
