Potential buyers will “bid” and at the end of the auction period, often right down to the last second, the highest bidder will “win” the right to buy for its final price. > The seller posts an auction for a predetermined time period (it cannot be ended early unless using BUY IT NOW). > Members place bids during the time the auction is posted – right until the last second of the last day. > At the end of the auction the highest bidder wins the right to purchase the item (of course all laws and regulations must be followed for them to actually make the purchase). > If the BUY IT NOW choice was offered by the seller (optional) and a member uses it, the auction and bidding ends at that time and that member wins the right to purchase the item immediately. What’s an Approved Bidder Auction? An Approved Bidder Auction is just like a regular auction, with one major difference; the seller gets to pre-qualify bidders before they can bid. This type of auction is primarily for EXPENSIVE or RARE guns because most people will not take the time to register as an approved bidder to bid on a common gun. (A check box for this listing choice will appear if you chose auctions on the “Select a Listing Type” page). All other aspects apply to an Approved Bidder Auction that applies to a regular auction. * MANY USERS FIND AUCTIONS TO BE MORE COMPLICATED THAN CLASSIFIED ADS. * MANY USERS FEEL ACCEPTING A “BLIND” BID FROM AN UNKNOWN PERSON IN AN AUCTION CREATES COMPLICATIONS WHEN SELLING FIREARMS. * AUCTIONS CAN NOT BE ENDED EARLY FOR ANY REASON. * AUCTIONS CAN NOT BE EDITED OR CHANGED FOR ANY REASON. * YOU MUST HAVE THE AUCTION ITEM AVAILABLE TO SELL RIGHT TO THE END OF THE AUCTION’S SCHEDULED END DATE. IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH AUCTIONS and/or IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH SELLING FIREARMS WE RECOMMEND THE USE OF CLASSIFIED ADS TO SELL YOUR ITEMS!! Special Notes & Policies: > Auctions can NOT be edited once posted (unlike E-Z Ads and Classifieds). > Auctions can NOT be ended early unless you offered BUY IT NOW on the listing and a bidder uses this option. > You MUST keep the item available until the end of the Auction or until the BUY IT NOW option is used by a bidder. > You MUST sell to the winner if there is one, at the end of the auction or to the BUY IT NOW bidder (as long as selling to them is legal). > You MUST have the item in stock and ready to ship immediately. > You can only list one item or lot per Auction, no “either or” deals. > You can NOT use Auctions to sell multiple items, even if they are all the same item. The winning price must pay for ALL that was listed. > Basic/Free members can NOT post/list an Auction. > There are no listing fees for Auctions, unless you choose to pump up your listing with Special Features. > All Special Feature Fees are due and payable even if your item does not sell. > Auction listing descriptions can NOT contain any contact information or website URLs. > Auctions use the Offers & Messaging system to insure privacy of both the buyer & seller. > GunsAmerica reserves the right to delete any listing that violates policies – there will be NO REFUNDS for such deleted listings. > GunsAmerica reserves the right to terminate the membership of any member that violates policies – there will be NO REFUNDS if this happens. > Visit our FAQs page for a HOW TO on Viewing / Replying to Offers & Messages and Bids, or if you have any questions. > Becoming a member, using our services, or creating a listing means you agree to our fees, policies, and TOS.
