TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All Magic Categories
(See below for Illusions)
Please provide us the asking price you would
like to receive on the item. We will list your items FREE.
You can never receive less or more than your asking price. Items
that sell fastest are generally listed at 1/2 off
the original retail price. We list items by adding 10% of retail
to your asking price.
You do not pay a commission on your asking
price - your asking price is what you receive.
Keep this in mind when setting your asking price. Shipping costs
are the responsibility of the buyer unless otherwise stated by
the seller in the listing. We prefer that sellers send us all
their magic listed at one time. This saves time and money in
shipping costs, since buyers will only pay one shipping charge,
we must consolidate the orders here and charge whatever it costs
us to ship. Since many magicians travel a great deal, it allows
us to service buyers and sellers in a timely fashion. If at any
time a seller wishes to withdraw his remaining items, we will
pack them up and ship them back. We inventory, pack, label and
ship items as a courtesy to sellers and combine items won into
one shipment for buyers. All other auctions, buyers pay a separate
shipping charge for each item purchased. In some instances the
seller does not provide a retail. In this situation we must make
a guess estimate.
Do Not Ship Illusions, large stage props, collectors
items or other expensive to ship items to us -
they will ship from you, direct to the buyer, to save on double
Illusions follow the terms and conditions above for general magic.
The commission for Illusions is 10% (your asking price times
1.111) - Sellers do not pay a commission on their asking price.
You receive what you have asked for the item - no more and no
less. Pictures are required for illusions. Send by e-mail as
attached files. Please provide clear and detailed description
of the condition of the illusion along with manufacturer and
items that are included such as crates, fiber or ATA cases, hoops,
costumes, curtains, chains locks etc. Only original and authorized
illusions will be listed.
Your Items For Auction
When preparing your items for auction, please include the following:
Item name, category to be listed under, small description of
the item, manufacturer, condition, retail Price, and your asking
price. (Send by e-mail photos if available - we will add to your

our commission is already included when the item is listed.
NOTE: VIDEOS - We no longer take in VHS tapes - buyer's
are now looking for DVD's
Auctions close each Wednesday, items sold,
upon receipt of payment from the buyer will be shipped.
When received in acceptable condition by buyer we will send the
seller their asking price.
If your item has not sold after a few weeks you can lower your
price or remove the item from the listing.
Auctions close each Wednesday at 10:00 PM Eastern Time.
Winning bidders will be notified by e-mail the day after the
Since we have to list the item, inventory the item,
update the site every time a bid is made, notify the bidder when
he wins the item, collect the money for the seller, either ship
for the seller or notify seller to ship with instructions, provide
packing materials and ship for sellers, plus send the check to
the seller, not to mention the bookkeeping and cost of a commercial
site. That's a lot of work for a 10% commission. This
system is working well and seems fair to everyone. The seller
receives his asking price, the buyer purchases at a discount
and we make a profit on anything over your asking price. No one
pays an advertising fee and there is no password or entrance
fee to enter the auction.
Return Items in Inventory:
Your items can can be removed from
the auction and returned to you.
We will send you an email with the cost of returning unsold items
as quickly as possible upon your email request.
Your request should include your ship to address.
Our Seller Guarantee:
Your items will not be shipped until the money is collected from
the winning bidder and it clears the bank. It is your responsibility
to state the true condition of your items to be sold. If an item
is received in poor or worn condition you may have it returned,
unless the items condition was clearly stated in your listing.
Be specific in your descriptions. If an item is received by a
buyer in unsatisfactory condition the seller will be put in contact
with the buyer to settle the matter. If a reasonable settlement
is not reached in 10 days the item will be sent back to the seller.
If you are clear and detailed in your description of the condition
of your items you will avoid a return. We are not responsible
for disputes between buyers and sellers after 30 days. Magicauction.com
is not responsible for fees paid by buyers or sellers on cancelled
transactions. Fees for sending payments are charged by Banks
/ PayPal and are deducted from the original amount before we
receive the payment, therefore we do not have the fee to refund.
Whenever possible on Pay Pal refunds we will send the refund
within 60 days to insure that Pay Pal also refunds the fee. On
wire transfers or money orders there is no way for us to refund
the cost or fee charged. Sellers listing Knock offs of original
illusions, trying to pass off a counterfeit copy as an original
or selling any props that are not authorized by the originator
or manufacturer will be returned to the seller. Knock Offs are
not permitted to be listed at Magicauction.com
is the responsibility of the buyer to return the item to the
seller in order to receive a refund. We can't refund money until
the item is returned to the seller and he receives it. When the
item is received by the seller in the same condition it was sent,
the buyer will receive a refund. If the item is returned without
authorization the buyer is responsible for all additional costs
(if any) related to the 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.
Buyers making payments by credit card, wire transfer or similar
payment options - all charges will be absorbed by the seller.
There is usually a $20.00 bank charge to receive a wire transfer.
Orders paid by Pay Pal or Credit Card will cost the seller approx.
three percent plus a .30 fee for Pay Pal to process the transaction.
Pay Pal E-Checks - flat fee of $5.00.
offer a guarantee to both the buyer and seller. To cover both
parties we hold payment in an escrow account until the buyer
confirms receipt of his purchase. Every weekend we do checks
for all transactions that are completed (received notification)
that week and mail them on Monday morning. Seller's checks include
their asking price for each item received and any shipping reimbursement
due less any Pay Pal or Credit Card fees.
