Site Terms and Conditions
Evans Liquidations, LLC is a registered LLC in the state of Missouri, hereinafter referred to as eBid2Win. EBid2Win is responsible for maintaining the eBid2Win.com website. EBid2Win.com serves as the venue used by independent auction companies (Affiliates) to present their online auctions to bidders. The following terms and conditions apply to every auction posted on the eBid2Win.com website. These terms and conditions relate to general website policies and procedures. In addition to the website terms, each auction appearing on eBid2Win.com has auction specific terms. The auction terms appear at the bottom of every auction page. By placing a bid on eBid2Win.com, bidders are verifying they are at least 18 years old and acknowledging they understand and will comply with both the eBid2Win.com website terms and the auction specific terms.
In the event of a mandatory shut down for non-essential businesses:
If the Governor of Missouri institutes a mandatory shut down of non-essential businesses, affected auctions will be "held in place" until businesses can reopen and new closing date and time can be established.
NUMBER ONE RULE IN BIDDING:
Removal Day Is NOT Inspection Day! Once a bid is placed, you are obligated to purchase if you are the winning bidder. Removal Day is not the time to "Change your mind" or decide you "Really don't like it". Failure to purchase for any reason will result in your bidder number being disabled and pending bids cancelled. Our fraud control system will NOT allow you to bid by creating another user account.
Web Site Guests Ability to Bid:
ID may be requested. EBid2Win requires bidders to be over 18 and register with their full legal name. You may not register with any name other than your own. Attempts to register with a name other than your own (identity fraud) will be referred to appropriate legal authorities. If you have a legal right to register on another's behalf, you must send a copy of the POA prior to registration.
EBid2Win allows registrants to bid at eBid2Win's sole discretion. If eBid2Win’s fraud control system detects "Suspicious Bidding Activity", eBid2Win reserves the right to limit the number of auctions / items/ dollar value which may be bid upon. If a bidder account is prevented from further bidding the bidder must contact eBid2Win during regular business hours (M-TH, 9-5; Fri 9-2) eBid2Win’s definition of "Suspicious Bidding Activity" is defined by eBid2Win internal policy and while not disclosed in advance is applied by virtue of programming with no personal bias. Payment history, auction count, item count and dollars bid are contributing factors to the fraud control algorithm. Owners of items being sold on eBid2Win.com are expressly forbidden from bidding on their own items.
If bidding rights are terminated due to no-show invoices, bidders MAY be reinstated at the discretion of eBid2Win only after a penalty fee of 20% of the unpaid invoice(s) and a reinstatement fee of $25.00 has been paid to eBid2Win and a scanned copy of your driver's license emailed to us. INVOICED ITEMS WILL NOT BE AWARDED. The payment is punitive and meant to deter no-shows. Duplicate bidder accounts will be deactivated when they are determined to exist. If possible and at our discretion eBid2Win reserves the right to delete any bid, we believe has been place by a suspect bidder. Any registration that shows up on our fraud detection system may be placed on hold and bids removed until user is verified . EBid2Win reserves the right to disallow anybody from bidding on its web site. A member of a household who has "No-Showed" on an invoice will cause all members of the household to be disallowed from bidding. No further registrations from the household members will be allowed until prior issues are cleared. Cases of obvious bidding with no intent to redeem will be referred to appropriate legal authorities.
Credit Card Required to Bid:
To place bids on the web site a valid credit card is required. Credit card information is for identity verification only and will not be used to pay for invoices (even at the request of the bidder). Registrants will be directed to our credit card processor and credit card information will be stored by the processor. The processor maintains full PCI compliance. Bidders have the option to submit payments online. Online payments can be initiated only by the bidder.
eBid2Win's Role in Auctions Published on eBid2Win.com:
EBid2Win’s role in the auctions listed on eBid2Win.com is limited to providing the venue for affiliate auctions. Affiliates are not employees, agents, representatives, or partners of eBid2Win. EBid2Win’s knowledge about individual auctions and individual auction transactions is limited to the information appearing on the website. Questions and issues relating to a specific auction or transaction must be directed to the affiliate named as conducting and managing the auction in question. The auction specific terms, found below each auction item picture and description, lists the name and phone number of the individual authorized by the independent business to conduct and manage that specific auction on the auction company's behalf.
Responsibility Associated with Obtaining a Bid Number:
A unique bid number is provided to a bidder upon completing the registration form. Bidders are responsible for keeping the contact information associated with their bidder number up to date and accurate. During the registration process, bidders will choose a password. This password is immediately encrypted and is known only to the bidder. It is the bidder’s responsibility to ensure the security of their password. Bidders are held accountable for every bid placed with their bidder number.
Winning Bidder Notifications:
EBid2Win’s system automatically sends notifications to winning bidders. Once we send them, we have NO CONTROL whether they reach their destination. Bidders can check their status by looking on their dashboard two hours after the sale closes. Bidders are responsible for knowing if they have invoices. Do not claim you did not receive your email; therefore, you did not pick up your invoice. This excuse is not acceptable by eBid2Win.
If you do not want an item, do not bid on it. Once placed, bids will not be retracted.
Due to the expense in running credit cards for low value invoices, the minimum credit card transaction will be $5.00.
Credit card payments are not accepted for more than $5,000 unless otherwise stated in the auction terms. In the event an affiliate chooses to accept a credit card for a transaction over $5,000.00 the affiliate may, at their discretion, charge a fee to cover the added credit card expense.
Bidder Training and Tutorials:
Bidders are responsible for understanding how to use the eBid2Win’s bidding platform prior to placing bids. Training videos and instructions are available within the Bidder Knowledge Base. If bidders require further assistance, they should contact eBid2Win via email to: email@example.com prior to placing bids.
Bidders are responsible for every bid placed with their bidder number. Bidders are responsible for knowing and abiding by the terms of every auction for which they receive a winning bidder invoice. Prior to placing a bid on an auction, the bidder should review the auction information and details included in the 4 tabs (Details, Terms, Directions and Shipping) at the bottom of each auction page:
Which affiliate is conducting the auction and where the auction assets are located?
The scheduled opening and closing date/time of the auction, as well as when the inspection and removals are scheduled.
Auction and Removal instructions contained in the auction terms, including payment types accepted by the affiliate. Availability of shipping.
Auction Item Descriptions and Pictures:
Lot descriptions and pictures are intended to provide bidders with information for determining asset value. While the information on each asset is deemed to be accurate and include all relevant information affecting the value of the asset, bidders should NOT rely on the item descriptions and pictures as their sole means for determining an asset's value. Physically inspecting an asset is the best way for a bidder to determine its value. Affiliates are required to schedule inspections for every auction they conduct on eBid2Win.com. Bidders are strongly encouraged to ALWAYS inspect assets prior to bidding.
Assets are sold "AS IS WHERE IS":
Assets sold on eBid2Win.com do not have warranties, express or implied. Illustrations, pictures, or videos posted on eBid2Win are for informational purposes only. Bidders have sole responsibility for determining an asset's value. Bidders must conduct whatever due diligence is necessary for them to assess value prior to placing a bid. Bidding strategies and amounts should be based on the asset research conducted by the bidder. Every bid is an offer to purchase the asset for the bid amount. By placing a bid, the bidder waives all claims against the affiliate based on the condition or value of items.
Assets Published with Reserves:
Unless otherwise noted in specific auction terms, assets requiring a minimum bid price to sell, appear on ebid2win.com with “Reserve Not Met” below the Next Required Bid information in the lot description. Once the high bid reaches the required minimum bid, the message changes to “Reserve Has Been Met” and the lot will be sold to the high bidder. Auctions selling upon seller approval will be disclosed in the auction specific terms. In these cases, the reserve wording will not appear on the item listing.
Affiliates may lower a lot reserve at any time before or after an auction closes. If the reserve is lowered while the auction is in progress, the applicable reserve message will appear below the Next Required Bid information (Reserve Not Met or Reserve Has Been Met); the asset will sell to the high bidder if the lowered reserve amount is met. If the reserve is lowered after the auction closes, the highest bidder at auction close will receive a winning bidder invoice.
Auction Close and Extended Bidding:
Information on bidding pages will be updated in real time. Bids placed by other bidders will update as you view the page. Time remaining will count down.
Regarding the countdown, there may be a very slight lag due to your connection speed. IT IS VERY UNWISE TO WAIT UNTIL THE VERY LAST MOMENT to place your bid. Since bids placed toward the close of an item only serve to extend the clock, there is NO STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE to waiting until the last second. System results ARE FINAL. Ebid2win will not entertain claims of having "one second left".
Each auction has a scheduled closing time. This is the time the first lot on the auction is scheduled to begin closing. Each asset within the auction will begin closing at the time indicated for that asset.
Ebid2win extends the closing time of a lot if a bid is placed on the lot in the final 3 minutes prior to the indicated close time. Each time an additional bid is placed, the countdown clock resets to 3 minutes. A lot will not close until a full 3 minutes has expired since the last bid was placed. For example: If a lot is scheduled to close at 6:30pm and a bid is received at 6:29pm, the countdown clock will reset to 3 minutes from 6:29pm. If no other bids are placed, the lot will close at 6:32pm. If an additional bid is placed at 6:31pm, the countdown clock will reset to 3 minutes and the lot will not close until 6:34pm.
Bidders are notified of their successful bids within a few hours of the scheduled auction closing, via a winning bidder invoice appearing on their Dashboard. Bidders are responsible for monitoring their Dashboards and fulfilling the auction terms associated with each winning bidder invoice appearing on the Dashboard. At the time an auction closes, the sale of the asset becomes a legally binding agreement between the winning bidder and the affiliate. The bidder is required to purchase the asset and the affiliate is required to sell the asset for the high bid amount plus the buyer’s premium and all required fees and taxes.
Buyer’s Premium – Personal Property:
Unless otherwise posted in the terms tab for a specific auction BP is as follows:
For lots with a hammer price up to $4,999.99 the Buyer's Premium is 15% which is retained by ebid2win and distributed at its discretion
For lots with a hammer price $5,000.00 and over, the Buyer's Premium is 10% which is retained by ebid2win and distributed at its discretion. The Buyer's Premium is capped at a max of $1,000.00 (per item). The sales price of a lot is equal to the bid + the buyer’s premium. The buyer’s premium is subject to sales taxes.
Invoices that include assets subject to sales taxes, will have the appropriate sales tax amount included on the invoice. Sales taxes are calculated on the sale price (winning bid + buyer’s premium) for each asset included on the invoice. Fees and taxes will be charged on all applicable assets; the only exception to this is if the winning bidder completes the exemption documentation required to waive the fees and/or taxes, before taking possession of the assets.
Buyer’s Premium – Real Estate:
The buyer’s premium on real estate auctions is not capped and varies by auction. The buyer’s premium for a real estate auction will be listed in the terms for that auction.
Sale of Firearms:
Handguns: A permit to purchase or a permit to carry is required for any handgun sale. Ebid2win does not take possession of any firearms or ammo that are sold by Affiliates on this platform. All affiliates and buyers are responsible for meeting all legal requirements. Here is an example of the state of Missouri. https://www.atf.gov/resource-center/docs/guide/state-laws-and-published-ordinances-2010-2011-missouri/download.
In Person Removal: Buyer and Affiliate are required to meet all Federal and State legal requirements.
If an Affiliate ships a Firearm or ammo to a Buyer, they are required to meet all Federal and State requirements for the state/states that it is shipping from/to.
Auction Removals and Shipping:
Winning bidders must pay their invoices and remove their assets from the auction location during the scheduled removal date and time indicated for the auction. Bidders should not place bids on an auction if they are unable to attend the scheduled removal, unless and until they have arranged for another party to remove the assets during the removal or discussed the possibility of an alternative removal time or the availability of shipping with the affiliate. Affiliates address auction-specific removal and shipping instructions in the auction Terms, Details and Shipping tabs located at the bottom of each page of the auction.
It is important for bidders to recognize affiliates are under no obligation to provide alternative removal times or shipping for the assets in their auctions.
Transfer of Ownership and Risk of Loss:
At the time the winning bidder pays his invoice in full, ownership of the asset and risk of loss passes immediately to the bidder. If a winning bidder pays his invoice in full but does not take possession of the assets during the removal day, ownership and risk of loss will still transfer to the bidder.
Failure to Abide by Website and/or Auction Terms:
Bidders are responsible for knowing and abiding by the website and auction terms. Failure to do so will result in the termination of bidding privileges on eBid2Win.com. Reinstatement is at the discretion of eBid2Win.
Winning bidders who fail to attend the removal and have not made alternative arrangements with the affiliate prior to the removal day, lose claim to the assets on their winning bidder invoice. The affiliate conducting the auction will decide how unclaimed assets will be handled.
Every bid placed on eBid2Win.com is a commitment to purchase the asset for the bid amount. EBid2Win prohibits affiliates from placing bids on their own auctions and sellers (or their agents) placing bids on their own assets. Bids placed with any intent other than to purchase the asset for the bid amount is fraud. EBid2Win will prosecute bidders who engage in fraudulent bidding. EBid2Win terminates the bidding privileges of bidders who fail to honor their winning bidder invoices. Bidders who lose their bidding privileges are prohibited from placing bids on eBid2Win.com. Placing bids using another bidder’s number or registering for a new bidder number is an act of fraud. EBid2Win.com will prosecute bidders who engage in fraudulent bidding.
EBid2Win is committed to doing everything possible to ensure the reliability of our website. Unfortunately, there are factors outside our control that can impact access to eBid2Win.com. If eBid2Win.com becomes inaccessible at any point during an auction closing, the following protocol will be followed:
Auctions that have closed prior to the website going down, will remain closed and the winning bidder invoices will be sent out.
Auctions in the process of closing, regardless of how many lots have closed or have yet to close, will be reopened and the auction closing will be extended by 24 hours.
Lots that closed prior to the website going down, will be reopened for bidding; the winning bidder will be the lead bidder upon the website becoming accessible again.
Auctions scheduled to begin closing during the time the website is inaccessible, and for the 15 minutes following the website coming back online, will have the auction closing time extended by 24 hours.
Auctions scheduled to close more than 15 minutes after the website becomes accessible again, will close at the scheduled time. In the event of a website interruption not covered by one of the above scenarios, eBid2Win reserves the right to make the final determination of how the auction will be handled.
Bidder indemnifies and holds Evans Liquidations LLC. and eBid2Win harmless against any damage, loss, injury arising from the transactions of auctions conducted by affiliates
