Website Terms for Bidders – Auction Website
These Website Terms for Bidders on Auction Websites are designed for
websites that offer online auction facilities to business and consumer
Please note that this template is designed to work within a set of three,
These terms ensure that you, as the website operator, only provide the
platform (as you would a venue offline) for auctions and that you are not a
party to any transactions. Further provisions explain to bidders that you
are not responsible for the items that sellers are advertising for sale.
As to payment facilities, this document is drafted on the assumption that a
third party payment system will be used and thus explains to users that
their use of that system will be subject to a separate agreement between
them and the service provider.
Further key clauses set out rules governing the conduct of auctions,
payment obligations, buyers’ rights (which vary according to whether
sellers are businesses or private individuals), and your liability.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be
read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused
options should be removed from the document.
