European Sellers Auction Geeklist: mid May to mid June 2013
You can see how the last auction panned out here: European Sellers Auction Apr-May
To make sure you don't miss a European Auction list you can subscribe to this thread: European Geeklist auction subscription thread
1. You must be shipping from Europe* to add an item here
2. The buyer pays shipping costs
3. Buyers may be from anywhere (but note point 2!)
4. Shipping (postage+packing) will be at cost and will only include insurance/tracking if specified by the seller, or agreed with the buyer (though some Airmail services automatically include insurance)
5. Sellers are expected to combine shipping to minimise costs where a single buyer wins multiple items from them
6. Sellers are expected to provide appropriate packaging
7. Sellers should specify:
- Condition (game, completeness, box)
- Language (and language dependency level if appropriate)
- Starting price
- Expected shipping cost within their country
- Expected shipping cost within Europe, if seller is shipping to Europe
- (optional) Expected shipping cost for the Rest of the World
- (optional) Where they are prepared to ship to
- (optional) Whether they will allow free collection in person and from where
- (optional) If they are be donating any % of sale proceeds to a charity and what it is
8. Sellers are expected to donate 3% of selling proceeds to BGG, whether by direct donation or by conducting the sale through the BGG marketplace
9. Transaction costs (e.g. paypal) are expected to be absorbed by the seller
10. Complicated sales like adding sweeteners, selling geekgold, "pick X items", etc are allowed, but should be clear to all
11. Unless otherwise specified the default rules for auctions are:
- Auctions end 7 days after they are begun (e.g. one started on the 20th ends on the 26th), BGG time
- Auctions end at a random time on the day they are due to end - to deter sniping
12. Items should not be simultaneously listed both here and on a maths trade list. To avoid conflicts this list will be created on or about the 20th of the month so that auctions may be set up and completed before the European/UK/German maths trades commence.
13. Euros are suggested as the currency for the auction with a minimum of 1 euro increments in bids. Sellers may specify other currencies & minimums. All bids for a single item must be in the same currency.
14. Unusual currencies (e.g. Swedish Krona) for auctions/shipping costs should have their rough exchange rates to the Euro listed with the item.
15. At the end of auctions it is the Seller's responsibility to close the item (ideally with LARGE TEXT) with the winner in the item and then geekmail the winner to ensure they know they have won.
16. If you have a large number of items to sell it might make more sense to create a separate geeklist of your own, then put an item here that links to it. This makes it easier for you to control and monitor, and easier for buyers to buy several items at once.
GBP/UK Pounds are approximately 1.2 Euros - but if the exact amount is important, I urge you to look it up!
* Europe as defined by UK postal service:
UK to Europe postage calculator (not sure if this is official):
General discussion of this list, or these lists in general (like how they could be improved) should be posted on the Discussion thread and NOT in the comments section (so that subscribing is useful). Discussion/questions specific to an item may be either in the item or the discussion thread, whichever is more appropriate.
You can subscribe to a metalist of all auctions (including these) at this geeklist.
This list is now CLOSED. 38 items sold, 108 didn't, 2 were links to other auctions and one was sold elsewhere.
