Your Obligations As BidderWhen you use the Service and bid on an item during an online auction conducted on our Site, you are making an offer to buy the item at your bid price. If your bid price is the Winner’s Bid Amount, you will be the Winning Bidder and are obliged to purchase the item you have bid for and pay the Winner’s Bid Amount, plus any additional charges that you may be obliged to pay. REMEMBER: When you make a bid you are entering into a legally binding contract. Do not bid on an item unless you are able and willing to pay for it.It is your responsibility to read the Product Information and Sale Overview about any item we post for auction on the Site.You must not rely solely on the title summary or any photographs of the item posted on the Site for a complete description of an item. The photograph and description of the item are intended to serve as a guide only and must not be used to form a final opinion of the item’s suitability. ALLBIDS makes all best efforts to accurately describe all items on the site but is not responsible for any discrepancies or omissions which may exist in the description. It is ultimately your responsibility as a bidder to form your own view on the accuracy of an item’s description prior to bidding.Please make sure you understand the delivery and payment terms, including any addendum to those terms and conditions as outlined in the item’s description or in the Sale Overview. Note that a Buyer’s Premium, and other charges such as a delivery fee, will apply to most online auctions.You must not engage in bid manipulation. Bid manipulation is any practice which unfairly induces other users to make bids or controls the bid price. This includes (but is not limited to) bidding in a way that pulls other bidders to their maximum bid, retracting the high bid, and then re-bidding at a small increment above the legitimate high bidder or employing Shill Bidding, which is, the use of secondary registrations, associates or aliases to artificially raise the bidding on an item). Buyers are also prohibited from communicating with each other for the common purpose of manipulating the final purchase price of an item.
