“Buy It Now” lets you purchase an auctioned item without bidding. And not only that – you can also get back the BIDs you have spent on the auction!
The option is available for selected auctions, marked with a shopping cart icon. You don’t have to participate in an auction to buy an item. Simply click the “Buy It Now” button and place your order. Items purchased with “Buy It Now” do not count towards your auction win limit.
You can use “Buy It Now” for 24 hours after the end of the auction (as long as it appears on the auction detail page). Doing so does not prevent you from bidding. The offer is open to all Wellbid users with fully activated accounts.
When placing a “Buy It Now” order, you can select between two options:
Option 1: BID return
You pay the full retail price of the item, as shown on the auction detail page (plus shipping and handling costs). BIDs will be returned to your account within 45 days. Successful completion of the transaction (item receipt confirmation) is required for the BID return to be processed. Your account will be credited with the amount of BIDs shown on the order placement screen.
Option 2: Price discount
You pay a discounted item price (plus shipping and handling costs). The price is lowered by the value of the returnable BIDs spent on the given auction.
Items are shipped within 14 days of order acceptance.
