Auction Rules

iHasta provides an online service for Sellers to auction their goods.  It is designed primarily for those with many items to sell at once.  Sellers must create lots, photograph their items, upload the photographs with descriptions and coordinate pick up.  Sellers may however hire iHasta to assist with those tasks for an additional fee.

The following auction rules apply to all auctions.  If a particular auction webpage displays any rules that contradict the following, the contradictory rules displayed for that particular auction will apply.

  1. Buyers must create a free iHasta account profile and register a payment method with Stripe in order to bid.
  2. Buyer viewing of the goods, if any, will only occur at a specified location, date and time window.
  3. Stripe charges a 2.9% plus $0.30 credit card processing fee on all Buyer’s invoices.
  4. Buyers may be required to pay sales taxes for certain Sellers.  It is the Seller’s responsibility to charge the correct taxes.  iHasta has no responsibility for Sellers incorrectly or failing to charge sales taxes.
  5. If there is a conflict between an item description and its photo, the description takes priority.  Buyers are requested to report any such conflicts so they can be corrected.
  6. Buyers should carefully review their bids before submitting to make sure they bid on the right items at their intended price.  Bids cannot be altered or withdrawn once made.
  7. Buyers may use the “Highest Bid” feature to place the highest bid they are willing to make.  The Buyer’s current bid will only go up if a competing bid is placed, and only by the minimum bidding increment.  Buyers can change their Highest Bid unless it is at or less than the then current high bid.
  8. iHasta has a set of standard bid increments that are based on the amount of the lot’s current bid. See the table below to see the bid increment increase for each bid range.
    Bid range: Bid Increment Increase:
    $0.00 to $35.00 $1.00
    $35.01 to $100.00 $5.00
    $100.01 to $1,000.00 $10.00
    $1,000.01 to $5,000.00 $50.00
    $5,000.01 to $10,000.00 $100.00
    $10,000.01 to $1,000,000.00 $250.00
  9. iHasta uses soft closes.  The end time of an auction will be extended by 2 minutes if a new bid is submitted within 2 minutes prior to the then current close time. This extension process will continue until the extended time runs out without any new bids.
  10. Buyers must pick up their purchases only at the specified location, date and time window found on their invoice. Buyers (or any third party the Buyer sends for pickup) must provide a copy of the Buyer’s invoice and 1 piece of government issued photo identification at time of pickup. If a Buyer does not attend during that window, payment for the item will be released to the Seller 48 hours after the end of the window and will not be refunded. The Buyer is deemed to have abandoned the item and the Seller will retain the item.
  11. Buyer must disassemble, pack, load, and ship their purchases.  Neither iHasta or the Seller will assist.  If the Buyer causes any damage to the Seller’s property, repair costs may be charged to the Buyer.  For safety reasons children are not allowed to attend at the pickup site.
  12. Items are sold “as is, where is”.  Buyers must inspect items at pickup to authenticate that it is the item they purchased, they have everything they purchased, and to authenticate any claims made by the Seller for the item.  Any such issues must be dealt with at the time of pickup.  When a Buyer leaves with the item they are acknowledging that they have all their items and there are no discrepancies.  If the Buyer disputes the Seller’s representation regarding the purchase, the Buyer must leave the item with the Seller, advise the Seller of the reason, and immediately advise iHasta.
  13. Credit card payment is processed by Stripe immediately on auction close.  Payment is released to the Seller as early as 48 hours after the Buyer picks up the item.  Payment may be delayed if the Buyer advises iHasta within 48 hours that it disputed the Seller’s representation of an item at the time of pickup and left the item with the Seller.
  14. If Buyers violate these rules, iHasta may terminate their membership.
  15. iHasta endeavours to provide Buyers and Sellers with safe, respectful conditions.  If a Buyer or Seller violates the User Responsibilities in the Terms of Use, or exhibits any behaviour iHasta considers unsafe or disrespectful, iHasta may at its discretion terminate their membership or revoke account privileges.
