Terms and conditions

GoatPromoter.com Online Auctions requires that you read, understand, accept and comply with the following terms and conditions in order to bid in an online auction hosted by us.

Bidder Eligibility
You must be at least 18 years of age and able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law.

Auction Close
If an item is offered for online prebidding only, then bidding for the item will continue during a silent/live event auction and Auction Close refers to the end of bidding during the silent/live event auction. Otherwise, Auction Close means the end of online bidding or the end of online fixed-price item sale for the item.

Your Bid or Purchase is a Contract
When you place a bid on an online auction item, you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from the seller if you are the winning bidder. You are the winning bidder if your bid is the highest bid at Auction Close and your bid is accepted by the seller. When you purchase a fixed-price item, you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from the seller.

Payment Terms
If you are a winning bidder or purchase a fixed-price item, you agree to pay the seller the full amount of your winning bid (for biddable items) or the sale price (for fixed-price items) plus any applicable sales or use tax on your purchase, as well as any applicable shipping or delivery charges. You agree to honor the seller’s requirements regarding method and time of payment.

Seller’s Terms
When you place a bid on an online auction item or purchase a fixed-price item, you are agreeing to any specific terms and conditions imposed by the seller and included by the seller in the item’s description (except in the case that such terms would violate the law or conflict with GoatPromoter.com’s Terms of Service).

All Bids are Final
Once you have placed and confirmed a bid, your bid can not be retracted (except in the case that the completion of the transaction would violate the law or the GoatPromoter.com Terms of Service).

All Purchases are Final Once you have confirmed a purchase, your purchase is final and can not be canceled (except in the case that the completion of the transaction would violate the law or the GoatPromoter.com Terms of Service).

Tied Bids
In the case of two bidders placing the same maximum bid, the bid first received by the auction system will be deemed the leading bid.

Government Regulations and Taxes
You are solely responsible for compliance with any federal, state or local tax laws governing your purchase. It is your responsibility to report and pay any applicable taxes. We suggest you consult a professional tax adviser.

Auction Changes
Sellers reserve the right to add or remove items from the online auction at any time without notice.
