Non Paying Bidders

A Non-paying bidder is a person who wins the auction through the bidding process but does not follow through with the transaction. Our sellers expect bidders to follow through with purchasing the item(s) won by auction. shopgoodwill.com’s Bidder Agreement states as follows in section 4:

4.Bidding and Buying. As a bidder, if you have the highest bid at the end of the auction, at or above the minimum bid price (or in the case of reserve auctions, at or above the reserve price), and your bid is accepted by the seller, you are obligated to complete the transaction. Bids are not retractable except in exceptional circumstances such as the seller materially changing the description of the item after your bid or clear typographical errors, or when you can not, through no fault of the buyer, authenticate the identity of the seller. You may not bid in a way that pulls other bidders to their maximum bid, retract the high bid, and then rebid at a small increment above the legitimate high bidder (bid manipulation)…

The seller community of shopgoodwill.com, other member Goodwill’s, are committed to notify the staff of shopgoodwill.com of bidders who fail to fulfill their obligation to purchase the item(s) they have won through the bidding process. shopgoodwill.com takes these situations very seriously and will record and monitor bidders who fail to fulfill their obligation. Therefore, bidders reported by the seller community as being non-paying bidders face indefinite suspension from shopgoodwill.com
