CONSIGNORS

Your consignments are Always welcome, and very much appreciated. All consignments are a flat 20% commission. We do everything else! Unlike other auction houses, you keep your props until they sell, then you only send what sells to us.

BIDDERS

1. A marginal buyer's premium of 20% of the final hammer price shall be added to each purchase and is payable as part of the total purchase price. HORRORDOMAIN.COM does not make profit from this buyer's premium, which is amongst the lowest in the industry. It is assessed to help cover overhead. A few examples of such are Auction Fees and percentages paid to Icollector, Paypal and credit card fees, Catalog and Advertisement costs.
Picking up items in person, and paying in cash saves you money, Saves us time, and weeds out the possibility of any damage incurred during shipping.

2. Sales tax will be added to the purchase of all items purchased within California. The buyer's premium is part of the purchase price and is taxable. CA residents will pay 8.75% unless a tax exempt form is on file at time of auction and an original valid resale permit filed at time of registration with a copy for our records from the California State Board of Equalization..

3. Invoices are usually sent out within 24 hours of auctions end, but we do ask up to 3 business days to do so.
Complete payment is required within 7 days of the date of the auction, with a grace period of 3 more days, for a total of 10 unless other arrangements are made in advance.
"Items not paid for within 7 days [AKA the following Friday] are subject to being resold to another party". "Items not paid for within 10 days are subject to being re-listed in the next auction." Either is at our sole discretion. "So seal the deal up, and pay on time for must haves."
Any Deadbeat Bidders will be blacklisted from future auctions. This is not a permanent block, but bidder will be required to pay a 20% restock fee to return.
Acceptable forms of payment are Paypal, through which you can use Visa, Master card, American Express, Discover, Checks (with bank letter of guarantee), Cash (Pick up Only) and PayPal but under the express condition that any property purchased by credit or debit card shall not be refundable, returnable, or exchangeable, and that no credit to Buyer’s credit or debit card account will be issued under any circumstances. For payment other than by cash, delivery will not be made unless and until full payment has been actually received by HORRORDOMAIN.COM.
HORRORDOMAIN.COM has been authorized by the seller or consignor to retain, as partial remuneration, the premium set forth as number (1) in this paragraph. Unless otherwise agreed in a writing signed by HORRORDOMAIN.COM, payment in full is due within 10 calendar days of the invoice date unless other agreements have been made.
