Terms and Conditions of Listing in the Lily Auction:
Revised Dec 1, 2018
To sell on the Lily Auction all sellers must
agree to the Lily Auction Users
1) Fixed (Listing) Charge when you list your item:
There is a $0.20 listing charge for listing any Standard Auction item on the Lily Auction. This is a fixed $0.20 fee that is non-refundable, even if your item does not sell. However, if you re-list an AUCTION item that did not sell the first time in the Lily Auction, for the same or lower amount, and within 60 days of item close, there will be no listing fee for the re-list. You will be able to re-list an item that doesn't sell from your closed auctions, Items Not Sold, lists. There is no listing fee for Reserved Items (item reserved for a specific buyer).
2 ) Calculated Closing Charges at Item Close:
At the end of an auction or sale, the seller will be charged a Calculated charge which is based on the final value of your item. The Final Value of an item, is the closing bid amount or the 'Instant Buy' price.
The Calculated Charge is determined by calculating a percentage of the Final Price of the item at Item Close or when a buyer buys a fixed priced item.
You will not be charged a Calculated Closing Value Fee if there were no bids on your item or your Fixed Priced Item does not sell.
3) View Counter fee is $0.10 if you select a counter in your Items.
One free listing for Auction items that do not sell the first time if listed within 60 days of auction close. This does not apply to Instant Buy Items (which can already be listed for 30 days).
If your auction item does not sell, you can re-list your item, only once, in the LILY AUCTION by going to the View Closed Auctions link, selecting the appropriate auction in the 'Items with no bids' list and using the re-list item button at the bottom of the page. If your item did not sell, and not more than 60 days has passed since it closed, there will be no charge to re-list it once. After it is re-listed, the item will be moved to the archived auction list where you can re-list it as many times as you like and be charged the standard listing fee.
