Terms of Bidding
Bidders must register to bid at waddingtons.ca/my-account/account-sign-up/ in order to participate in the auction. The bidder’s email address will be registered with Waddington’s at waddingtons.ca/my-account/account-sign-up/ and will be shared with ACT for administrative purposes. The email will be used for SNAP auction communications only.
All sales are final. No purchase can be returned, refunded or exchanged. Bidders are legally responsible for all bids that they have placed, even if a bid has been placed in error.
A buyer’s premium of 10% of the successful bid price of each lot is paid by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. Note: This buyer’s premium goes directly to ACT. No HST/sales tax is applicable.
Successful bidders must pay for their purchases by Visa, American Express or Mastercard within 48 hours of receiving their invoice by calling Jordan Tan, the Donor Relations and Database Coordinator at ACT at (416) 340-8484, ext. 279.
Bidders will be notified by email when they are outbid and will also receive an alert if they are on the bidding site at the time they are outbid. In the case of identical bids, the earliest received will take precedence. ACT and Waddington’s are not responsible for technical errors or failures to execute bids.
ACT will contact winning bidders with payment and shipping instructions.
The Buyer will be the highest bidder for the lot and the Buyer immediately assumes full risk and responsibility for the lot. When you register to bid you are agreeing to these rules.
