Costs for the consignor
The costs for a posting of objects have a fixed component (fixed costs) and a variable component (variable costs).
The fixed costs consist of the fees for auction handling, advertising, internet publication and cataloguing of consigned objects and are determined as follows:
For the execution of the auction, the consignor pays the auctioneer 15% commission from the sale proceeds plus currently 19% VAT on the commission. Irrespective of the sale of the consigned objects, the consignor shall pay the auctioneer a fee for handling, advertising, each internet entry and cataloguing per auction.
- For a consignment value of up to 2.000,- Euro and a maximum of 15 consigned objects the total fee is 25,- Euro plus 19% VAT.
- For a consignment value of more than 2.000,- Euro the handling fee is 0,25% of the total consignment value plus currently 19% VAT.
- If more than 15 items are consigned, a fee of 2.50 Euro plus 19% VAT is payable per lot entry in the auction list.
The entry in the internet catalogue costs 2,50 Euro plus 19% VAT per consigned object.
Variable costs are the seller's commission. The commission depends on the sale and is only charged if the object is auctioned. The commission amounts to 17.85% of the hammer price, including the applicable VAT.
AUCTION PARTNERS works exclusively on a success-dependent commission basis, with the exception of the small fixed costs.
