Please be aware that additional details may be added to an item’s description, if brought to the attention of the Vistaauction.com staff, at any point before the auction closing time of any such item.

 

All winning bids will include an additional buyer's premium of 13% of the winning bid amount.

 

ITEM CONDITION and WARRANTY

All VistaAuction.com items listed for auction are either returned or overstock items. Most items will have been previously opened and, in many cases, used and then returned for various reasons.  If an item has been damaged, it will be listed as such, within the description of the product, and we will do our best to provide a picture of the damaged area, but do not guarantee the condition of the item.  Please do not rely solely on the item description and photos provided, as it is the bidder's responsibility to inspect any and all item(s) in which they are interested, during the listed preview times.  Our staff does not inspect or open packages, and as such, VistaAuction.com cannot provide any guarantee or warranty on any items listed.  The photos used are stock photos and are representative of the merchandise. Each item is listed pursuant to their individual UPC label.  ALL SALES ARE FINAL. All items are sold AS IS with NO WARRANTY. No refunds will be given, and all chargebacks will be denied, per these Terms and Conditions.

ITEM INACCURACIES

From time to time, an incorrect picture may be associated with an item listed for auction.  Alternatively, an item may be listed incorrectly.  VistaAuction.com strives to list items as accurately as possible, but it is the bidder’s responsibility to inspect any and all interested items, during the preview times.  If any inaccuracies are found, please bring them to the attention of the VistaAuction.com staff, or by emailing us at support@vistaauction.  Please provide the auction and item number, along with a description of the inaccuracy.  VistaAuction.com will do its best to update the item before the close of the auction.

REGISTRATION and PLACING A BID

Each prospective bidder must first register as a VistaAuction.com user to place a bid on an item.  By placing a bid, bidder agrees to these Terms and Conditions.  Before placing bids, please review all auction details before submission, as VistaAuction.com will not edit or delete bids after they have been submitted.

AUCTION ENDING and EXTENSIONS
VistaAuction.com utilizes a staggered auction closing on all items listed.  This means that each item will close 5 minutes before the next item.  An item’s closing time may be extended if a bid is placed within 5 minutes from the time of its closing.  The length of the extension will be 5 minutes from the point at which the bid was made.  Each time a bid is placed within this “extension period," the auction will automatically extend an additional 5 minutes.  This is designed and utilized to prevent what is commonly known as "sniping," which is the act of attempting to "steal" an item within the closing seconds of an auction.

PAYMENTS
All winning bids will include a 13% buyer's premium.  After each auction has ended, the Purchaser's credit card(s) on file will be charged and a "paid in full" invoice will be sent via email.  Accepted forms of payment include Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.  Credit cards will automatically be charged at the end of the auction unless otherwise specified under auction details.  Bidders must have available funds on their credit card, or bidder will incur a loss of bidding privileges (see below).

CREDIT CARD PRE-AUTHORIZATION
A $1.00 pre-authorization amount will be applied to the Purchaser's credit card for each auction you bid in.  This is a pending-only charge meant to verify your credit card.  This charge will not post permanently to your account.  If there are any questions, feel free to contact us at support@vistaauction.

INVOICES
Invoices are generated the morning of the auction’s scheduled pickup times, via email. If the Purchaser does not receive an invoice via email, please email support@vistaauction, and another invoice will be sent.  Invoice resend requests must be made before 1:00pm, the day of the scheduled pickup.

ITEM PICKUP
All winning bidders must pick up their items during the scheduled "Pick-up Hours."  At that time, the winning bidder must present an invoice, either printed or electronically, that shows the items have been paid in full.  A valid driver’s license is also required.  License numbers will be recorded and associated with the winning bidder’s VistaAuction.com account, for future reference.  If unable to make the scheduled pickup day/time, it is the bidder's responsibility to send someone on their behalf with a valid driver's license and invoice showing a paid in full status.  Any items that are not picked up at the scheduled time, will be considered abandoned, and are subject to relisting without refund at the discretion of VistaAuction.com, unless the winning bidder contacts customerservice@winnola.com to schedule an alternate pickup time.  VistaAuction.com does not guarantee that an alternate time for pick-up will be made available to the winning bidder.

SHIPPING
Currently, VistaAuction.com does not offer shipping of any type.  All items won must be picked up within the designated "Pick-Up Hours", at the VistaAuction.com facility listed on the auction, at the expense of the bidder. 

 

LOSS OF BIDDING PRIVILEGES 
If a bidder’s credit card on file is declined, bidding privileges may be revoked. In addition, VistaAuction.com reserves the right to revoke bidding privileges at any time, if bidder is found to be in violation of these Terms and Condition. Bidding privileges may be restored at the discretion of VistaAuction.com.

TAX EXEMPT STATUS
Any bidder that claims tax exempt status, must provide the appropriate documentation PRIOR to placing your first bid, during the registration process.  A copy of the current state’s tax-exempt form must be provided BEFORE placing any bids.  Failure to do so will result in the bidder being charged sales tax on any items won, prior to VistaAuction.com receiving the required documentation.

LIABILITY and ARBITRATION
VistaAuction.com assumes no responsibility for the damage, inaccuracy, or abandonment of any items listed and won.  Any issues or controversy that arises from, and/or relating to these Terms and Conditions, shall be settled via arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association.  Judgements rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

AUCTION SERVICES
VistaAuction.com is not a licensed auctioneer or auction firm. No type of auction services are provided.
