Answers to the auction and the bidding process
How do I know if I've been outbid?
When registering, you must enter a valid e-mail address. You will then be automatically informed as soon as you have been outbid. You can't change your e-mail-adress afterwards.
Who can see my data when bidding?
Data protection is important to us. Therefore, no one will publicly know your data or your name when bidding. Only the organizer has access to your data in order to be able to contact you when the bid is accepted. Under no circumstances will your data be passed on to third parties.
Who can I contact if I have questions about one of the auction candidates?
Who should I contact if I have technical questions or problems?
When does the auction end?
On 13.08.2020, starting at 6 pm, the auction candidates will be phased out starting with catalogue number 1. Catalogue number 2 at 6:04 pm, catalogue number 3 at 6:08 pm and so on.
Are those with fast computers and high transmission rates at an advantage in bidding duels?
No! The auction of a horse is always extended by 5 minutes if a new bid is placed within the last 5 minutes. This leaves enough reaction time even with slow connections.
However, the time sequence of the following horses remains the same.
What costs are added to the hammer price?
The settlement amount to be paid by the buyer is calculated as follows:
1st invoice item: hammer price
2. invoice item: 6 % agency fee of the hammer price
+ 16 % sales tax (of the agency fee to be paid)
3rd invoice item: 1,67 % Insurance
= settlement amount
Price example with hammer price of 10.000,00 EUR
6.0 % Buyer's commission 600,00 EUR
Thereupon 16 % VAT 96,00 EUR
1.67 % Insurance 167.00 EUR
Total price to pay 10.863,00 EUR
After the auction
Which bid decides the end of the auction?
The end of the auction of a particular horse is automatically extended by another 5 minutes after the last bid, i.e.: I bid at 18:12 pm on catalogue number 1, which would automatically expire at 18:15 pm. Now the end of the auction of catalogue number 1 is shifted by 5 minutes to 18:17 pm, and so on. The auction for the individual catalogue number ends as soon as no higher bid is placed in the corresponding period. The end of the auction for catalogue number 2 at 18:20 pm is not changed by this.
For example, how will I be informed about a surcharge?
Directly after the end of the auction of the respective horse, you will be notified by e-mail to the e-mail-address known to us.
How does the payment work?
You will receive a commission contract and a purchase contract, an invoice and an information sheet on insurance by e-mail as soon as the bid is accepted.
From the invoices you will find the bank details for the transfer of the total amount.
The pony can only be handed over after full payment.
How is the transfer arranged?
After the auction the foals remain with the seller until they are 6 months old. An earlier acceptance of the foal by the buyer is possible in agreement with the exhibitor.
At the request of the buyer, the exhibitor commits himself to leave the foal in his rearing and care until November 1st of the year of purchase. In principle, the buyer is obliged to collect the foal from the seller within the agreed time frame. If buyer and seller cannot come to an agreement, the foal must be handed over at an official handover date at the Marketing Centre of Ponyforum GmbH in 34431 Marsberg. At this date a veterinarian and a representative of Ponyforum GmbH will be present. The date will be announced separately.
If the sold foal is handed over to the buyer after November 1st, 2020, the organizer has to be informed.
The risk of accidental deterioration or loss of the foal is transferred to the buyer with the acceptance of the bid. The exhibitor shall bear all maintenance costs, including blacksmith and veterinarian, until acceptance
How is the insurance regulated?
Each foal is insured with the hammer until 30.11. of the current year for death, emergency killing and permanent unusability and is to be borne by the buyer. The insurance premium amounting to 1.6 % of the hammer price is due together with the hammer price.
