The Thirdman added value: Becoming your personal bidder
In order to validate your purchase offer we ask for a deposit of 5% of your highest offer on Stripe or PayPal.
If we successfully obtain your chosen lot, we will charge you the equivalent of the deposit as a fee for our services.
If we don’t obtain the lot we will immediately release the totality of your deposit after the auction.All sales are done in the currency of the country in which they take place.
The 5% deposit is also calculated according to the currency of the place in which the auction is taking place.
Since we are not a financial intermediate we will put you in contact with the auction house in order for you to settle the payment directly with them (hammer price + buyer’s premium).
The drafting of a sales invoice commits the auction house to be held accountable in case of a problem.Shipping costs and transport are subject to an initial estimate and to the buyers’ acceptance.
The buyer covers these expenses, added to the price of the sale.
