Overview — EBTH is a listing, information and auction website that brings together Buyers and Sellers. Items may be sold by a Seller either through a direct listing by Seller on the Site (a " Third-Party Listed Item") or through a consignment arrangement with EBTH (a " Consignment Items"). For Consignment Items, EBTH will assist Seller in preparing a listing on the Site. EBTH IS NOT A BROKER OR DEALER AND DOES NOT SELL, EXCHANGE, BUY, OR OFFER FOR SALE, NEGOTIATE OR ATTEMPT TO NEGOTIATE, A SALE OR EXCHANGE OF AN INTEREST IN ANY ITEM LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SERVICE. EBTH DOES NOT HOLD OR POSSESS TITLE FOR ANY ITEM LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SERVICE ,
Item Descriptions - All items are sold "as is" and you are aware that, unless otherwise stated, the items sold on the Site are not new nor in perfect condition, may require touch-up or repairs prior to use and the available information about these items may be limited.
EBTH makes no representation or warranty regarding any Third-Party Listed Item or the accuracy or completeness of any item description.
For Consignment Items, EBTH will not list every flaw associated with each item as these are to be expected. In the case of obvious faults (chips, cracks, significant damage, etc.) EBTH does its best to list the fault within the description. EBTH will provide descriptions based on its assessment of an item. However, you should not assume that our assessment of condition will be the same as your assessment. It is your responsibility to read and review all descriptions and images of an item before bidding, and you acknowledge that in posting such descriptions, EBTH relies on information provided by the Seller.
EBTH AND SELLERS MAKE NO, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY, GUARANTEE, WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, TO YOU WITH RESPECT TO ANY ITEM, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, CONDITION, MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, RARITY, IMPORTANCE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, HISTORICAL RELEVANCE OR OTHERWISE.
Extension and Close of Internet Bidding - At the scheduled date and online sale closing period of a sale, items will begin to close at a predetermined number of items per minute. All online sales may be subject to our automatic extension system defined as follows: if an item receives a bid with less than five (5) minutes remaining until closing, the close time will be reset to five (5) minutes from the time the bid is placed and will continue to reset to five (5) minutes with each newly placed bid. The item will not close until five (5) minutes have elapsed with no additional bid activity.
Sales Format — All bids must be placed through the Site. Absentee bidding is not allowed. Unless otherwise explicitly stated in the auction or item description, all sales are conducted without reserve by the Seller. Unless otherwise explicitly stated by EBTH in writing, the auction of personal property through the Service is conducted according to the following guidelines: (i) the property is sold to the highest bidder without reserve; (ii) the auction does not require a minimum bid; (iii) the auction does not require competing bids of any type by the Seller or an agent of the .t.211crSeller; and (iv) the Seller of the property cannot withdraw the property from auction after the auction is opened and there is public solicitation for bids; provided, however, that EBTH reserves the right to withdraw any item from the Site or to amend any content on the Site at any time in its sole discretion. EBTH will not be liable to you or any third party if we withdraw an item, amend any content on the Site or deny you access to the Site or the Services.
3. Bidding and Auction
Buyer's Contract - Your winning bid placed on the Site represents an irrevocable contract and you are responsible for paying all amounts due to EBTH. If you cannot pay for the items or agree to the shipping terms and costs, please do not bid on the items.
Placing a Bid — You agree and acknowledge that, in exchange for valuable consideration (including but not limited to the rights to use the Site, use the Services and participate in the online auction), all bids placed by you are irrevocable offers to purchase an item that may not be withdrawn by you at any time prior to the close of the auction. You expressly agree that, due to the irrevocable nature of the bids, any cancellation or correction of a bid by EBTH may result in a previous bid being the highest current bid subject to acceptance at the close of the auction. By placing a bid, you expressly agree that if you are the winning bidder you will pay for your item and agree to any additional handling and shipping fees applicable for shipped items. It is your responsibility to understand the pickup and delivery options and costs for each item before you place your bid. All bids are shown in US dollars and all taxes, shipping, and handling charges are additional.
Minimum and Maximum Bids — When submitting a bid, you must raise the bid by a minimum established increment. Bid increments can be found here. You may elect to raise the bid by more than the required minimum by entering a higher bid in the "Your Minimum Bid" box. If you enter a higher minimum bid and your bid is the winning bid, you agree to be bound to your bid amount, regardless of any other previous bids. You may also elect to enter a proxy bid in the "Your Maximum Bid" box. If you enter a maximum bid, the system will automatically raise your bid by the specified increments if you are subsequently outbid, up to your designated maximum bid amount ("Maximum Bid"). Maximum Bids are not disclosed. Maximum and/or Minimum Bids do not include any taxes, shipping or handling fees.
Increasing Your Own Bid — The system will permit you to raise your own bid by rebidding on the same item. This is to permit you to raise the price of an item out of the reach of other bidders. If you rebid on an item, your new bid is binding. If you are the current high bidder and want to increase your maximum bid without increasing the current bid, you must use the "Edit Max" function.
Bid Correction/Retraction — As stated above, all bids represent irrevocable offers to purchase that may not be withdrawn prior to the close of the auction. It is your sole responsibility not to submit erroneous bids. In the event that you submit an erroneous bid more than twenty-four (24) hours before the scheduled close of a sale, you may request a correction through our Contact Form here. Bid corrections are at the sole discretion of EBTH. Bid correction requests will become part of your user history, and are subject to review. Under no circumstances will a bid correction request be honored in the final twenty-four (24) hours of a sale. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, EBTH reserves the right to cancel any bid at any time if, in our sole discretion, we determine an error was made.
Bidding Notices — For your convenience, EBTH provides certain e-mail, push and SMS communications regarding the status of ongoing sales. These communications are provided as a courtesy only and are not official bid status communications. The failure to receive a notification of a winning bid does not relieve you from your contractual obligations as the winning bidder. To confirm the status of your current bids, visit the "I'm Following" page. You expressly agree that the display of the highest bid and the status of your current bid on the Site at the close of the auction are both accepted means of acceptance of your bid by the Seller. The bid history reflected on the EBTH system supersedes any e-mail, push or SMS communication in dispute resolutions.
Bidding Instructions — For additional information and a step by step walkthrough of the bidding process, Click here.
Shill Bidding — You represent and warrant that you will not engage in shill bidding. Shill bidding happens when anyone (including family, agents, friends, employees, or online acquaintances) bids on an item with the intent to artificially increase its price or desirability, usually on behalf of the Seller. You will be held liable for and agree to indemnify EBTH against any damages incurred by EBTH due to your related shill bidding.
4. * Payment*
Maintenance of Payment Information - In order to place a bid or list an item, you must have valid payment information stored in your profile. By providing your credit card information to EBTH, you irrevocably authorize EBTH to charge your credit card for the listing fee or total purchase amount of any winning bid plus any fees associated with the sale of the item, including but not limited to taxes, shipping and handling fees, as applicable. You also agree and acknowledge that you will maintain valid credit card information within your user profile so long as you maintain an account with EBTH and that you are authorized to use the designated payment method. EBTH reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to cancel listings or bids or suspend bidding privileges of any user not maintaining valid payment information.
Payment Forms Accepted - If you have placed the winning bid on an item that is eligible for in person pickup, you can pay for your purchases during the designated removal and payment times listed on the "Sale Details" section or the "Item" pages with cash, check or you may prepay online with a credit card or gift card and present your ID for pickup. All invoices under five thousand dollars ($5,000) that are shipped must be paid with a credit card and/or valid gift card (if applicable). Purchases over five thousand dollars ($5,000) will require payment via cashier's check, ACH or wire. Winning bidders with questions of how to make payment should submit a question via our Contact Form located here. If you do not elect a fulfillment method and you do not pick the item up during the scheduled pickup time outlined on the "Sale Details" section or "Item" pages, EBTH reserves the right to charge your payment method on file for the total purchase price of the item plus any applicable handling and shipping charges, and may ship the item to your address of record. You hereby expressly grant EBTH the right to hold a winning item until confirmation of cleared funds has been received by EBTH.
Escrow Arrangements – A Seller utilizing the Service to sell Third-Party Listed Items will have payments held in a non-interest bearing general escrow account maintained by EBTH for all such Sellers for a period of not more than 30 days until the Buyer of the Third-Party Listed Items receives that Third-Party Listed Item by means of one of the fulfillment options discussed below. Should the Buyer not receive the Third-Party Listed Item within that 30 day period through no fault of such Buyer or should Buyer return, within that time period, the Third-Party Listed Item due to the failure (as determined by EBTH in its sole discretion) of that Third-Party Listed Item to conform in a material manner to the Third-Party Listed Item description, EBTH will remit the escrowed funds to the Buyer. Upon Buyer's receipt of the Third-Party Listed Items sold by a Seller, EBTH shall remit the escrowed funds to Seller.
Sales Tax — All sales are subject to appropriate state sales and use tax laws, including, as to Third-Party Listed Items, any state sales tax laws applicable to Seller. Tax exempt buyers must provide the appropriate state sales tax exemption certificate prior to the end of the sale. Upon acceptance and validation of such information by EBTH, your future purchases will not be taxed, provided that you are still eligible for tax exemption. You may be required to update certificates on file periodically as deemed necessary by EBTH. EBTH requires a sales tax exemption certificate for each state in which an exemption is claimed. For more information regarding sales tax exemption, click here.
Failure to Pay — Any items not paid for in accordance with the EBTH Terms and Conditions within seven (7) days of the sale closing (or upon a later applicable payment due date as may be provided herein) will be forfeited by you and, as to Consignment Items, EBTH may, in its sole and absolute discretion, resell or dispose of the items as well as donate the items to a charity of EBTH's choosing. Third-Party Listed Items not paid for in accordance with the BETH Terms and Conditions will be retained by the Seller that listed the Third-Party Listed Item and may be re-listed for sale on the Site. EBTH reserves the right to charge any payment option you have on file and/or to report your account to collections for the combined total of the original invoice amount and any moving or disposal charges and you will be responsible for any charges incurred by EBTH in collecting your payment.
Gift Cards and Promotions — Subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable gift card or promotional discount, EBTH may accept payment via gift card or gift certificate and may discount invoices in accordance with certain promotions from time to time.
Should you place the final winning bid on an item, an invoice will appear in your "I've Won" list. By selecting the invoice and clicking "Checkout" you will be able to designate your final fulfillment method.
Pickup Option — Certain sales and items may have a designated pickup time and location. Before bidding, confirm whether you can pick up your item at the designated time and location. You must provide your own tools, labor and transportation to facilitate safe removal of your item(s). Plan accordingly for large or bulky items. Be prepared to show identification to pick up your item(s). Purchases will be released upon presentation of proof of payment. EBTH will not be liable for any damages created or incurred by you upon the pickup or transport of your item(s).
_Delivery – _ EBTH and Sellers utilize third party shipping agencies for packaging, handling and delivery of most items. Please be aware that not all items are eligible for shipping. If shipping is available, you can request a shipping quote when viewing the item. The final shipping cost is subject to insurance cost based on the final bid price and occasional fluctuations in fuel surcharges from common carriers. (Shipping quote insurance calculations prior to the end of the sale are based on the current bid value.) If you intend to have an item delivered, it is your responsibility to understand the potential delivery costs before placing your bid. EBTH will use reasonable efforts to ship the Consigned Items within ten (10) business days after the scheduled sale removal and payment date. Seller, as to Third-party Listed Items, must use reasonable efforts to ship the merchandise within five (5) business days after the scheduled sale removal and payment date. When you win an item, any shipping times we provide are estimates only and actual delivery dates may vary. You acknowledge that some items may have a longer processing period such as large items which may take six (6) to eight (8) weeks for delivery.
Alternate Pickup - In certain locations, EBTH may provide an alternative pickup location. If an alternative pickup location is available, it will be detailed in the item view. Additional fees may apply to have your item available at a designated alternative pickup location. Conditions regarding failure to pay and failure to pick up apply to alternate pickup locations.
Handling Fee — Items which must be moved from one location to another in order to make alternate pickup arrangements are subject to a minimum handling fee of ten dollars ($10.00) per lot. You agree that EBTH may charge a higher handling fee, in its reasonable discretion, for certain items which are difficult to transport.
Title and Risk of Loss — Subject to these EBTH Terms and Conditions, title and risk of loss to purchased items will transfer from the Seller to Buyer upon the completed processing and receipt of your payment by EBTH made in accordance with these terms. EBTH is not responsible for insuring items while in EBTH's possession. Upon the transfer of risk of loss to you, you agree to maintain adequate insurance coverage on such items located on EBTH's premises. In the event that you take possession of any purchased item before the completed processing and receipt of your payment by EBTH, the risk of loss will transfer to you upon your taking possession.
Failure to Pickup — IN THE EVENT THAT YOU FAIL TO PICKUP OR DESIGNATE SHIPPING FOR YOUR ITEMS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE EBTH TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU HEREBY AUTHORIZE EBTH TO CHARGE YOUR CREDIT CARD FOR THE PURCHASE AMOUNT OF THE ITEM PLUS ANY TAXES, SHIPPING COSTS AND HANDLING FEES. WHEN PICK-UP IS SELECTED BY YOU OR IS THE ONLY OPTION, IF YOU FAIL TO PICK-UP ANY ITEMS AT THE SPECIFIED TIME OR DESIGNATE A SHIPPING OR FULFILLMENT OPTION WITHIN SEVEN (7) DAYS OF THE CLOSE OF BIDDING YOU WILL BE CONSIDERED TO HAVE ABANDONED AND FORFEITED THE ITEMS. YOU AGREE THAT TITLE FOR ABANDONED ITEMS WILL AUTOMATICALLY TRANSFER TO EBTH WITHOUT ANY FURTHER ACTION BY YOU OR EBTH. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT FAILURE TO RECEIVE ANY ITEM IN THE EVENT OF ABANDONMENT DOES NOT RELIEVE YOUR OBLIGATION TO PAY FOR THE ITEM OR ANY OTHER FEES. AT A MINIMUM, YOU WILL BE CHARGED THE AMOUNT OF YOUR BID TO SATISFY PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS TO THE SELLER. EBTH MAY, IN ITS ABSOLUTE AND SOLE DISCRETION, RESELL THE ITEMS, DISPOSE OF OR DONATE THE ITEMS TO A CHARITY OF EBTH'S CHOOSING. EBTH RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHARGE THE CREDIT CARD ON FILE FOR ANY MOVING OR DISPOSAL CHARGES AND WILL NOT REFUND PAYMENT FOR THE ITEMS.
Liquidated Damages — You acknowledge and agree that the remedies afforded to EBTH in the "Failure to Pay" and "Failure to Pickup" paragraphs of these EBTH Terms and Conditions (the "Liquidated Damages") constitute compensation and not a penalty. The parties acknowledge and agree that, due to the nature of EBTH's Services and online auction sales generally, the harm caused by your breach as contemplated in the aforementioned paragraphs would be impossible or very difficult to accurately estimate, and that the Liquidated Damages are a reasonable estimate of the anticipated or actual harm that might arise from your breach. Your payment of the Liquidated Damages is EBTH's exclusive remedy for the breaches contemplated in the "Failure to Pay" and "Failure to Pickup" paragraphs of these EBTH Terms and Conditions.
All items on the Site are sold "as is — where is".

Governing Law - You agree that: (i) the Service and these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed solely based in Ohio; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Ohio. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Ohio, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms and Conditions evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Hamilton County, Ohio for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Hamilton County, Ohio is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Arbitration – Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from EBTH. For any dispute with EBTH, you agree to first contact us at EBTH Inc., Attention: Legal, 4650 Wilmer Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45226 and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that EBTH has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, " Claims"), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Hamilton County, Ohio, unless you and EBTH agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees pursuant to and in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys' fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; provided, that if you are an individual, you may apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; and you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed as preventing EBTH from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights.
Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver – With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties' individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
