Special Terms
Please read all the auction Terms and Conditions carefully. 1) Payment for winning bids is due no later than 2 weeks after the end of the auction. In this case, that would be July 25th. After 2 weeks with no adequate response or communication from the winning bidder, Lunar Legacies reserves the option to charge your credit card which is on file with Proxibid. 2) The starting bid on every item in the auction will be approximately 50-75% of the minimum estimate. However, many items will carry reserves which will not be met with just a starting bid. 3) If you wish to participate in the auction via the internet, please allow 5-10 minutes to download the necessary Java update required to run the auction on your computer through Proxibid. You may miss an auction item if you do not allow time for this requirement. 4) Seller or consigment fees are 10%. 5) Buyer fees for floor, mail-in and telephone bids are 10%. If paying by credit card or by Paypal, the buyer fee will be 12.5%. I will have to charge 2½% for any credit card purchase. 6) Buyer fees are 15% if you win through internet bidding since Proxibid charges us 5% off the top for all winning internet bidders and winning internet pre-bidders. Once again, if paying by credit card or by Paypal, the buyer fee for internet winning bidders will be 17.5%. 7) To bid via the internet you must register with once the lots gets moved over to their site. Registering in Lunar Legacies only gets you on the mailing list. If you registered for the last auction in March, you must re-register again for the July auction. Proxibid will not allow you to register with a new user name that is attached to an email address you registered with before. To change your user name, you must use a different email address. 8) Non-excessive packaging and handling will be charged to winning bidders, and of course, as close to the actual postage cost as possible. 9) Overseas shipment must have some sort of tracking mechanism. 10) I accept checks, money orders, VISA, MasterCard and American Express. 11) Mail-in bids will be accepted up to the time of the auction. For a mail-in bid to be used by Lunar legacies during the auction, confirmation of its receipt MUST be received by the bidder directly from Lunar Legacies. A fax bid with only an auto-response from the machine that the bid has been delivered, does NOT constitute confirmation from Lunar Legacies. We prefer email bids as its easier to keep track of them. Once you email us we will reconfirm that we have recieved your bid and will email you back. 12) Pre-bids will be accepted online through Proxibid for all items up to the time they are actually auctioned off. All internet pre-bids entered on Proxibid will be subject to the 5% internet user fee.
