Placing a Bid - When
you place your bid it must be $1.00 more than the opening bid.
If there is a last bid than your bid must be $1.00 more than
the last bid amount. Bids on items from the Illusion pages must
be $5.00 more than the opening or last bid.
Bidding Strategy - Many
bidders place a bid early in the week to find out if there is
anyone else bidding on the item they are interested in. Others
bidders wait until the last minute to bid hoping to win the item
in the last hour. A good strategy to is to place a max bid. When
placing a max bid you place your bid as usual except you add
the maximum you will pay for the item. (see example below)
Example of a max bid: Your bid $20.00 with a max of $22.00. If someone
bids 21.00 we will automatically raise your bid in increments
until your bid is the high bid. This will protect your bid against
last minute bidders.

of the purchase price will be sent to the buyer. Buyers will
not be reimbursed for the shipping cost on returns. Magicauction.com

transactions. Fees for sending payments are charged by Banks,
PayPal etc. and are deducted from the original amount before
we receive the payment therefore we do not have the fee to refund.

way for us to refund the cost or fee charged.

the seller. When the item is received by the seller in the same
condition it was sent, the buyer will receive a refund for the
purchase price and shipping cost if the seller shipped the item.
If you try to fix or alter an item you receive it is automatically
considered accepted and your payment will be released to the
seller. Please be sure to contact us for authorization before
returning any item to the seller. If the item is returned without
authorization the sender is responsible for any and all additional
costs (if any) related to the return shipment. Shipping costs
on items returned are not refundable since that money has already
been paid to the shipping company, we do not have it to return.
