This agreement is a legal document that outlines your and our rights and obligations in respect
to the services/goods/products provided by Bidforme.com.au
If a person is a resident of a country or state that does not permit or allow its residents to participate in an on-line auction service, then that person should not apply to become a member, or use the site.
Please read all the Terms & Conditions before joining. Becoming a member of Bidforme.com.au indicates that you have read and agree to all the Terms & Conditions stated below.
There are certain countries and states as is the case in Victoria, Australia that do not allow you to either join or bid or win on these types of auction websites. These are Penny Auction and Unique Bid Auction websites. It is totally your responsibility to know your own country and state laws and not that of Bidforme.com.au Actions or any member of it's staff.
If you do join and bid or win anything on our website and it is found to be that you are in one of these areas that you accept total and full responsibly for your own consequences and that Bidforme.com.au Auctions will be in no way at fault for your lack of knowledge on this matter. By bidding and/or winning any items from one of these places you also understand that no refund will be made of any kind on bids that you placed on our website and that if you are a winner that that item it will go the next Lowest Unique bid Offered.
All Terms & Conditions contained herein solely apply to the Internet website onBidforme.com.au, its employees and users. By signing up for an account and participating in the service available, users are agreeing to abide by all terms and conditions that follow.
Should any member be found giving us false or fraudulent information, we reserve the right to cancel the membership without prior notice and or block that member's IP address from being able to re-register again withBidforme.com.au
The word Unique is used on our website for the purposes of describing the Lowest Unique Bid offer made. This means a bidder that has placed (For Example only) 73 cents would have to be the only bidder to have made that bid offer and also be the lowest of all unique bids to win the item. This is the same throughout our entire website for all items sold.
The Lowest Unique Bid is the lowest bid placed that has not been duplicated by any other player/bid.
Bid offers can range from 1c to the "Max Bid Amount" allowed of that particular item and you can place as many bids as you like on any one item.
Two or more Bids that are the same do not constitute as being a Unique Bid.
The auction closes when the allocated amount of total bidders has been reached, each auction will be allowed to run it's full coarse till the total amount of required bids are reached and the required amount reaches to 0. This is to give each and every participant an equal opportunity to win the lowest unique bid and win the right to purchase the item at the lowest unique bid that was put forward as the winner. Under certain circumstances the required amount of bids may be reduced to close the auction quicker in order to find a lowest unique bidder for that item.
All third party use of this website is illegal and will never be accepted by us for any reason. Letting some-one else use your log-in details is a breach of the privacy act and will result in the cancellation of your membership.
Under no circumstances are you allowed to discuss your bid offer with any third party or with any other member of Bidforme.com.au whether a member of your own family or not.
If it is ever found that you have discussed this, your membership will be cancelled instantly and you will lose all rights to any items you may win. Plus you will not receive a refund for bid offers already in placed on Un-closed items.
Any type of mis-use can or will result in us contacting both Police and Fraud authorities and any other agent we feel will help solve any wrong doing.
House holds can register multiple accounts if they wish but can not use the same email address, password, and Username as your registration process will be denied by our system if you do.
Some items are only bought once the auction has been completed. We do this so you receive the full term of that items warranty with your item, as in some cases auctions may run for several months. For example an item may have 12 months warranty on it if we kept that item in stock and if the auction ran for 4 months and you won that item you would only be getting 8 months warranty on the item as 4 months has passed since the auction began on that item, in order to prevent this from happening and in order for the auction winner to get the full warranty on an item, the items are generally bought at the end of the auction so you get the full balance of the warranty.

2.A Member can place a Bid on any active Auction by clicking the "Bid Now!!" button on the Auction lot.
3.A Member can place a maximum number of Bids on any auction, which is stated by the Max Bids Per Bidder' tab, displayed in the auction lot.
Each Bid attracts an Admin Fee, payable by the Member. Admin fees are paid via paypal payment gateway which is the most secure and trusted payment system that is used today by millions of people daily.
All our items sold on Bidforme.com.au Auctions website have what we call an Administration fee. This fee is the fee that is paid by all bidders when they place a bid on any item.
The Administration fee is what is used to pay for the item you are getting for your lowest unique bid offer, plus it pays for all the extras we add towards an item like stamp duty fees, lawyer fees, postage etc if any.
On top of that we also add our fee which can vary from item to item because we have to take into account how long an item may be going for and this cost will come down as we see items going quicker, basically the quicker an item can be finalized the cheaper our fees will be on the next item as search engine optimization and advertising on goggle, yahoo etc, costs thousands of dollars a month, Our largest cost is search engines per month.
Unlike most other websites similar to this one, our website does not control the closing of an item by way of time but by reaching the full allocated "Required Bids" set on each item.
Once an item reaches the full amount of bids required it closes automatically and within a few minutes to 24 hours informs the winning bidder with the lowest unique bid of their purchase.
All closed items bidding progress can be viewed by any member after the closing has been finalized which can take up to a week. This gives the opportunity for all members to see that we are not cheating anyone and that all bids placed are honest at all times.
Anyone and everyone is eligible to bid on our website as long as they comply with the Terms & Conditions of our website and we also suggest you to read the Frequently Asked Questions to better understand how our auctions work.
Their are some countries or states that don't allow you to bid on these types of websites. It is totally your responsibility to know this and we can not know exactly which countries or states these are.
Bidding on an item does not give any bidder the right of ownership on that item in any way what so ever. All bids are placed with the understanding that only the winning lowest unique bid will have total ownership of that item after he/she has accepted to pay the bid offer that was placed by them. At no point will any other bidder have any say or any claim on any ongoing or closed auction for any reason what so ever.
The admin fee on all items is designed to pay for the following features of that item:
A-Value price of the item.
B-Postage fees if details state "Fee Postage".
C-Any transport fees to the item (example) We will fly you from anywhere in Australia to your new car or house(end Of Example).
D-Stamp duty fees when selling houses.
E-Lawyer fees up to $5000.00 au if stated within the details of that item.
F-Our costs for running, advertising and searching for items.
G-Wages for our employees.
H- Search engine website advertisements, billboards, radio and television advertisements etc.
Only the fees that correspond with any particular item are added within the Admin fee structure of that item. Buyers please be sure to read allTerms & Conditionsand all of the items description details and postage costs before bidding, as by bidding you are saying that you did read them and understand what you read and agree that you accept being under a legal contract under Australian auction laws unless otherwise stated within that items description panel.
Remember that when buying an item on Bidforme.com.au that all you pay to buy that item is the low unique bid offer you made and not the value of the item you see in the items box underValue Price.The admin fee is paid by everyone that wants to participant in placing a bid. The lowest unique bid that you put forward is only ever payable by the auction winner who has the lowest unique bid and not payable by anyone else.
We at Bidforme.com.au Auctions are a dedicated team set out to bring a new revolutionary reverse auction system that is taking the world by storm and is the craze in Countries like the US, UK, and Europe, as this is the new way to buy items at generally %99.99 of the total retail value by using this auction system. Far better than any other traditional form of auctions available today,
No other auction system will allow you to buy/win an item for just a few cents or a few dollars by placing your lowest unique bid and equally having an opportunity to win the auction and win the right to buy that item at your lowest unique bid offer you made.
Everyone has an equal opportunity of winning as the lowest unique bid can be any figure that is closest to Zero cents that is an unduplicated bid by any other bidder during the whole auction till it closes. Whoever has the lowest unique bid when the required amount of bids are met,then they are the lowest unique bid winner of that item.
Our website is designed to give the opportunity to those that would normally not be able to afford the full price of things they always dreamed about owning. Imagine owning (example) a half a million dollar house that you bought from our website for just a few cents or dollars, How about a new car. Best of all there is no finances needed, no mortgage to pay off, you will have stamp duty fees paid for you and lawyer fees also.
Bidding On Houses
For the low price of the Admin Fee and what ever bid offer you are placing (example figure only) $0.87au you could be the proud new owner of (example only) a $500,000.00 home with all stamp duty and lawyer fees paid for you (formed from the Admin Fees).
This means we will pay your new home's stamp duty and lawyer fees for you by sending a solicitor of your choice the money via cheque for the transfer contracts for purchase of the property. So all you have to do is pay your winning lowest unique bid offer of (example only)$0.87au and sign on the dotted line of your new home it's as easy as that, mortgage free, debt free, not a cent more to pay.
So do not waste any time placing your bids in and securing your position within the auction process as the Lowest Unique Bidder of a (example only)$500,000.00 home. The longer you wait the more chance you have of not getting it.
Placing a bid
Each items box is laid out like the example below.
Admin fee: $4.50
Bids Remaining: 426
Value;is the estimated cost of the item you would pay for in a store (new items). For second-hand items, it is the cost of what Bidforme.com.au thinks it should sell for if it were to be sold in a normal auction.
Admin Fee;is the cost of the item plus our administration fee for looking after, placing the item and any of our services required to manage the sale of the item. This will vary depending on the price of the item.
Required Bids;is the number of bids set by our administration to cover all costs, but also to determine the cheapest fee you will need to pay to make a bid offer.
Bids Remaining;is the amount of bids needed to be made for that item to close and the auction to end to determine the lowest unique bidder.
Depending on the amount of Required Bids asked for, which is determined by the price of the item, an auction may go for as short as 1 week to as long as several months or longer. The auction closes when the Bids Remaining reaches 0.
When you have found an item that you wish to bid on you will need to first click on BID NOW within that items box which will take you to another screen where you can decide how much you would like to bid.
Remember we want your Lowest Unique Bid Offer,so think of a low unique amount that you feel is what you would pay for the item and place it in the box. Remembering that it has to be a Unique Bid offer for you to win the item.
The sole purpose of a lowest unique bid auction is that if you are the lowest unique auction winner you win the right to purchase the product or asset at your lowest unique bid price you put forward. That's how unique bid auctions work, unlike traditional the form of auctions where it is the highest bid put forward is the auction winner. In lowest unique bid auctions everyone has an equal opportunity to win the right to purchase items at a very low price as low as a few cents or dollars.
By clicking on BID NOW button, at this point you agree to pay for theAdmin feefor placing your bid.
Once you click on BID NOW after placing your bid offer, you will be told if you are:
A.Your bid has been placed.It is currently the lowest Unique Bid. Please watch till the auction finishes if you have won the product. You will receive an e-mail if your bid has been beaten.
B.Your bid has been placed. but unfortunately it is not the lowest unique bid.
To win, please try again.
It will be up to you to choose what to do next. You will receive an email for each bid you make and can keep track of all your bid offers in the Site Map.
Our auctions are not time limited based but are set to end when the amount of required bids allocated by us has been reached which then closes the auction on that item.
So please be aware that this can be anything from a week to a month or more.
Once the full "Required Bids" amount on an item has been reached the auction will close and we will then search for the lowest unique bid offer made by those bidders that participated within that items auction.
