artelino auctions are ended automatically by the system. About 10-30 minutes after auction end all bidders of an auction receive a programmed notification. Please verify if your home and shipment address are correct. If not, make necessary changes on My Account within 10 hours after auction end.
Everything else is done by us - relax!
We charge you the hammered price of your winning item(s) and the buyer's commission of currently 20.00% of the final hammered price.
If you opted for immediate shipping, we charge you the shipping fee.
Buyers from an EU member state pay VAT (value added tax). For details see taxes. Shipments to non-EU member states like the United States of America or Switzerland are not subject to any German or EU taxes.
You may return an item and you do not have to specify a reason. But quite frankly, we do not like returns. Returns are too costly for us. Therefore we usually terminate the business relationship with you after the second return or earlier. This does not apply if we made a gross mistake in our descriptions (happens rarely, but it does happen every now and then).
If you return your purchase you have to cover the shipping costs both ways plus a return handling fee of USD20.
For buyers with shipment address in Germany only: In accordance with the German Fernabsatzgesetz, you have the right to return an item within 14 days at our costs.
On your request we hold your purchases from several auctions back up to 6 months and ship consolidated when you ask us to do so. We calculate the consolidated shipment as one order. If the total value of your consolidated shipping reaches certain minimum values, you may even get a free shipment.
If indicated in the auction announcement we offer a reduced buyer's commission of 15 % instead of 20% if you place at least 5 bids within the first 36 hours in ONE auction.
