WHAT IS IT?
It's the Online Trading Site for Pigeons! Sellers reach hundreds of qualified buyers on a daily basis, and realize an excellent, low-cost opportunity to market their stock. Buyers are presented with excellent deals on outstanding flying kits and breeders - all the excitement of a pigeon auction from the comfort of your own home!

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Top quality pigeons are entered on the PigeonAuctions.com site; thousands of qualified bidders see the birds, read over the information, look at pictures (all online) of the birds and place bids on the ones that catch their fancy. When the auction closes, the seller and highest bidder (winner) are notified by email. The winner makes payment and the seller ships the bird(s) to the winner. Pigeonauctions.com is not responsible for any technical failure beyond our control (such as power outages or server problems). If an outage occurs during final bidding we will decide if it is necessary to repost those lots.

- Auctions will not close while bidders still want to bid! All auctions will have a scheduled time to close. When the auction reaches this predetermined close time, it will remain open until such a time, as there are no more valid bids for a period of 4 (four) minutes. This is the way auctions work in the real world, we've never seen an auctioneer close an auction while people still have their hands in the air! We won't either.
GETTING STARTED:

All you need is a connection to the Internet and a web browser (any kind will do), a working email address and a form of payment. If you've got all three then you can just point your browser at www.PigeonAuctions.com and click on the "Register" button. You'll be signed up in under a minute's time. If you would like to register with out a credit card, please call the number below. We've built the site to be as simple to use as possible, but if you have any trouble at all please call us toll free (866) 570-BIRD or (405) 478-5155 (during operating hours ¬ 8-5pm M-F). We'll either help you right then or call you back shortly and get you up and running in no time. Remember, please call Monday through Friday if you need help registering. We are closed on Weekends.

There is NO CHARGE to register ¬ we do ask for your credit card or payment information when you register. This is how we ensure that you are who you say you are. We need to do this to protect the good people who enter birds for sale on our site, and to protect the integrity of the auction itself. Please keep your information current.



PLEASE NOTE: The credit cards billing address must match the billing address on your account with pigeonauctions.com. If they do not match, the transaction will not be processed.
A $1.00 charge may show up on your credit card statement. This $1.00 charge is to verify your credit card. It will be credited back to your credit card. In the event that your billing addresses do not match, the transaction will be voided and you will be requested to update your account online with the correct billing address. It may take a couple of days for the void to go into effect and to show up on your credit card account.

IT IS THE BUYER'S/SELLER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP THEIR ACCOUNT UP TO DATE.

WHAT ARE THE COSTS FOR WINNING BIDDERS?
Winning Bidders/Buyers pay whatever they bid for their winning bids in the auction plus shipping fees. NOTE: Pigeonauctions.com will always work with the buyers and sellers to try to keep the shipping costs down. If for example a customer wins 2 birds from the same seller during the same auction we will make sure that the seller combines the birds and enables us to charge only 1 shipping fee. However, if more than two birds are to be shipped, the shipping cost is as follows: Shipping of one (1) bird will be $55.00 and an additional $10.00 per bird after that. This means that two (2) birds will be $65.00, Three (3) birds $75.00 , Four (4) birds $85.00 and etc. Additional charges may apply to electronic timers and equipment. All prices are subject to change. If a buyer would like to purchase several lots from several weeks it up to the buyer to contact pigeonauctions.com about combining shipping from all auctions. The buyer must contact pigeonauctions.com after each auction closing stating to combine shipping with specified lot number. We will not combine shipping if we are not notified after each auction closing to combine shipping. *

SELLER'S CONDITIONS AND COSTS?
1) We charge a $30 insert fee per lot. This only applies to lots that receive bids. Pigeonauctions.com deducts the $30 from the money the seller receives for selling the bird. (We will only deduct the $30 if the lot sells). The seller is entitled to run each lot 1 additional time if it does not sell after the first posting. After that, the $30 insert fee will be charged to the seller's credit card on file whether the bird or lot sells or not.

2) Sellers are required to pay pigonauctions.com 10% of total sell on lots with winning bids of $500 or higher. (This does not include the 3.5% collection fee). The insert fee of $30 will be excluded on sales of $500 or more. Effective August 1, 2005. Rates are subject to change*

3) If you would like for Pigeonauctions.com to collect the money from the buyer at the end of the auction we charge a 3.5% collection fee. This is OPTIONAL, if the seller would like to work the money deal out with the buyer PAC will give the seller the buyer's information, and we will not charge the collection fee. However we have found that 98% of our sellers want PAC to collect the money, so we will operate this way (collect the money for you) unless you specifically ask us not to.

4) Seller's are not able to use their seller's checks to pay for lots bid on/purchased by them. REFUNDS TO BUYERS:
If the buyer is not satisfied with the lot or bird/s purchased the buyer is entitled a refund from the seller (buyer must return the lot and request a refund within 7 days of arrival of purchased lot). Buyer must be refunded the winning bid amount. Shipping is non-refundable if lot has been shipped to buyer(no exceptions). If the lot has not been shipped, shipping is refundable. Buyer is to contact the seller for a refund. Once the seller has been paid for the lot, pigeonauctions.com is not responsible for refunds. It is then up to the buyer and seller to negotiate any refund.

PICTURE SIZE:
Pictures must be 400 pixels, this is the same size as a 4 X 5 or 3 X 5 picture. Pedigrees must be 900 pixels, this is around an 8.5 X 11. When creating a lot put the picture in the BIRD IMAGE 1 box and the pedigree in the PEDIGREE IMAGE 1 box. This is very important to remember when posting your lots. The system automatically downsizes pictures and pedigree to the proper size. The system can not increase the size. If the pictures and/or pedigrees are not the recommended sizes, and the system has to automatically downsize them when uploaded they will become blurry.

GRAPHIC FEES:
If Pigeonauctions.com is required to perform graphical work (edit photos, edit pedigree, scan in pedigrees, switch the pedigree and picture, etc...) we have a $10 per photo/pedigree graphics fee. Our auction is setup to allow you (the seller) to input everything yourself directly onto our website - you can upload your pictures, pedigrees, and type in the exact descriptions you'd like for your auction lot. We ONLY charge the graphics fee IF the lot does not meet the requirements.
