Registering to bid

Posted in News, Site improvements and modifications on April 20, 2015 by Bid for Wine

We have today launched a feature much requested by both buyers and sellers. From today all new bidders will be asked to register a credit or debit card with us before bidding – this will not only allow us to process payments faster (if you request that we take payment from the card) but will, we hope, help prevent the rare but irritating cases where bids are exuberantly placed after several glasses of vino and then forgotten about..! We have also amended the following sections of our terms and conditions of business to reflect this change (in bold) as below:

Terms and Conditions of Use

9. By bidding on an item you agree to be bound by the conditions of sale included in the item’s description so long as those conditions of sale are not in violation of this Agreement or unlawful. As a bidder, if you have the highest bid at the end of the auction, at or above the minimum bid price (or in the case of reserve auctions, at or above the reserve price), and your bid is accepted by the seller, you are obliged to complete the transaction. Further, you are obliged to complete the transaction with the seller if you purchase an item through one of our fixed price formats. Bids are not retractable except in exceptional circumstances such as the seller materially changing the description of the item after your bid or clear typographical errors, or when you can not authenticate the identity of the seller. We may request that you register a credit/debit card with us prior to bidding. This may be used to collect payment for lots bought via the site where these have been consigned to Bid for Wine. Payment for ‘direct’ listings will not be collected from registered cards[…]

Contract between Bid for Wine and the buyer

5.    Payment for wines sold on consignment with Bid for Wine should be received as cleared funds within 7 days of the date of invoice. Where payment has not been received we may debit any credit/debit card you hold on file with us.
