You may add a reserve price to any of your lots. By choosing to use a reserve price, this ensures that your bottle does not sell for any less than the nominated reserve price. A reserve price fee is charged at $6 (inc GST) per lot per auction. Reserve prices however are limited to a maximum 75% of available retail price if the bottles are still available within Australia, 75% of the previous hammer price or 25% on top of the RRP of any sold out new releases within the past 3 months. If you have any queries about this please contact us at [email protected]
After Bottles Are Received
Your lots will be listed in your vendor account in the week leading up to the auction commencement date. This will give you a chance to review and request adjustments to the listing if you have further information to add to it.
You can keep track of the current bids for all your auctions within the vendor account.
We aim to make all payments within 21 days of the auction completion date (sooner depending on the buyer’s payments). We reserve the right to deduct all listing, reserve and other fees from the sale balance such as courier fees and import duties.

What happens if the bids do not reach the reserve price?
If your bottle fails to reach the reserve price during the auction, we will endeavour to get the highest bidder to meet your reserve price unless we are notified not to before the end of the auction. If the highest bidder refuses the offer, you may reenter it into the next auction, request we offer the bottle to the highest bidder at their highest bid or have the bottle returned to you. We can discuss adjusting the reserve to ensure it gets sold in the next auction. Please note that listing and reserve fees will be applicable each time you enter a bottle for auction.
