Congratulations if you won one of the lots - you will have received an e-mail giving details of how to pay.
Upon payment of the amount due, successful bidders will receive the breeder's contact details, and you will then have 14 days to contact the breeder to discuss arrangements for collection of your bird(s). Onward carriage charges are the responsibility of the auction winner.
If you pay by card or any method other than through the website, there may be a delay before you receive the confirmation e-mail (as this needs to be generated manually). Andrew Seymour will then contact you with the breeder's details.
If you have any queries, contact us on 01452 713529 or at [email protected]
Sorry, there are no posted auctions yet.
The bidding procedure is virtually the same as using eBay: each bid you place will be treated as a maximum bid, and the system will automatically make minimum bids for you up to your maximum bid amount.
(There is no need to enter the £ sign or any pence when bidding, just the appropriate digits, e.g. 20 for a £20.00 bid.)
Click the refresh button in your browser to view the most up-to-date bids on a particular lot.
The List of Posted Bids is underneath the Description panel, and the person currently winning the auction appears top of that list.
The minimum bid amount you will need to place is £5 more than the current leading bid up to £100; then £10 more up to £250; and £20 more for bids over £250.
Bids placed within the last 10 minutes of an auction will trigger a 10 minute extension to that auction. The extension will continue if a further bid is received in that time. This will continue until no additional bids are received.
You will be notified by e-mail if
– you have placed a bid
– you have been outbid
– you have won an auction
– you have lost an auction
Once you have been notified that you have won an auction, you can pay on-line. Either follow the link in the e-mail or go to MyAccount on the Home Page, select Buyer Menu and Outstanding Payments (you do not have to use PayPal, as the system accepts one-off payments by credit/debit card).
Your confirmation e-mail will also give details on how to pay directly into the RPRA bank account, or by cheque. If you choose either of these methods please contact the RPRA by phone to advise us of this, and make sure you include the lot number(s).
Once you have paid you will receive an e-mail to confirm this.
