Selling/Buying

You can buy items through the Site in two ways. During the Buy Now phase, you can purchase the lot at the price without taking part in any bidding for the lot during the timed auction. During the timed auction, you can bid for the lot and if at the end of the timed auction, your bid is the highest bid (if there is more than one highest bid on the lot at the end of the timed auction, the highest bid first received will be the winning bid), you will become the buyer of the lot. If you purchase a lot at the Buy Now price these Terms will apply to you in the same manner as if you had been the successful bidder in a timed auction. By clicking on the button "Confirm Bid" on the "Confirm Your Bid" page, you will be deemed to have made an irrevocable offer to buy the lot for a price up to the amount shown as your current bid on that page. If you become the winning bidder, we will notify you by email, and a binding sale contract will automatically be concluded between you as the buyer, and the Seller of the lot.The Contract of Sale betwenn the Seller and Buyer will be deemed to have been concluded as a result of the automatic Award.
