How it works

 

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
We have tried to develope a user friendly, but modern website.

The process works as follows:

Registration
This has to be done once, and only takes a few minutes.

Bidding
Once registered, you are welcome to bid on any pigeon offered on our site.

Nicknames
The system allows byers to use nicknames. Reason being many clients do not want others to know who they are, and what they spend. This we accept and understand.
However, no bidder is allowed, while the bidding process is underway, to use the nickname of the previous bidder bidding against him. That is immoral as the previous bidder will still see his nickame and will think the bid is on his own nickname.
In the event of this happening, the bidding will be deemed cancelled, the last bid removed, and the pigeon shall be reauctioned where it stopped on the previous bid.

Automated Bidding
Our site is fully automated and a bidding button is placed with each pigeon on offer. You can click on it and add the bidding amount you wish to bid. You can also add a buying order. See rules of buying order.

Buying Order
When a bid is placed, you can also instruct our automated system to continue bidding up to a predetermined amount on your behalf. The advantage to this process is that you do not always need to check the bidding process to make another bid. The buying orders are kept confidential and only known to yourself. The system has been developed in such a way that the webmaster DOES NOT have access to your buying orders. This can be verified and checked AT ANY TIME.
When a bid is received equivalent to your buying order amount, the buying order will automatically receive the default bid as it was placed first.

Telephonic bidding
ALL BIDDERS are required to make use of our Automated Bidding proccess  on the site.
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, you may phone us on 084 2000 667

Minimum bid increase
Starting price on Opening bids shall be determined by the mutual agreement between the seller and the auctioneer.

Minimum bid increment is R200 there after till R5000 is reached
Between R100 & R5,000 the minimum bid increase is R200
Between R5,000 & R10,000 the minimum bid increase is R500
Any bids exceeding R10,000 have a minimum bid increase of R1,000

Auction Prolongment
If a bid is received within the last 15 minutes prior to the end date and time as indicated within the particular part number, the closing time for that particular pigeon on auction will be extended by 15 minutes, until the15 minutes have passed without a bid being placed,etc.
