1. Release Auctions – How it works.

As with all auctions, the highest bidder upon close of the auction wins the item. All auctions will run for 7 days, from the 1st of every month until the 7th. As this is a silent auction and bids will be hidden, buyers are encouraged to put in their best offer for the works. One day before close, all bidders will be notified about where their bid is (either winning or losing).  Upon close of auction, the winning bidder will be contacted for thanks, payment & shipping.

Viewing possible by appointment in Auckland city, please email me – info@andrewjsteel.com

2. Release Auctions – Payment & shipping.

Auction is for the listed original artwork. The open & close of auction will be visible to all via a countdown timer on the page. The auction will close and the winning bid at this point will be recorded, and contact will be made for payment & shipping. The successful bidder will be notified, and a link & email will be sent to secure payment and collect delivery details. $50 will be added to all auctions sales to cover packaging & transport costs. Contact must be made to the seller within 7 days of the auction closing, and payment within 10 days of auction closing. Payment is to be made prior to shipping. If no contact is made within this timeframe, the artist reserves the right to contact the next highest bidder and engage them for the sale. The final sale price will be held in confidence, as with buyers personal information.
