I hereby acknowledge and confirm the following:  

My bid may be accepted by the seller at any time before the close of the auction.  It is subject to the terms and conditions of the auction which I have read and understood. I have read and understood the legal pack applicable to my bid/lot and agree to be bound by any special conditions within that pack.

Any amount payable at the close of the auction must be paid within 1 hour.   

Please note that the bidding process will work in a different way to an eBay auction, so there is NO advantage to bidding at the last second. 

Each auction will automatically stay open until there has not been a bid within the final 10 minutes. If no bid has been submitted within the final 10 minutes of the auction, the auction will close and the highest bidder will be successful subject to the reserve price being met or upon acceptance of an offer by the seller throughout the auction cycle. If there is another bid within 10 minutes of the last bid, the auction countdown timer will be restarted for another 10 minutes to allow further bidding. This system avoids last-minute (or second) bidding and makes for a fairer auction as in a live-room auction situation. 

Please bid in good time before the end of the auction, delaying your bid to the last seconds may disadvantage you if your connection slows or you lose internet connectivity.
