Buyer fees & taxes
Registering with IronPlanet and participating in auctions are free.
For each item won in an IronPlanet Auction, the Buyer must pay a transaction fee. The amount of this fee is based on the final selling price and is detailed on the Payment tab of the listing page for each item.
Default and Late Payment Fees
If the winning bidder fails to complete the transaction for any reason, they must pay a Default Fee based on final selling price of the item less Buyer's transaction fee. In addition, Buyer will be charged a Late Payment Fee on all items purchased that have not been paid within five (5) business days after conclusion of a Purchase Contract. The Default Fees and Late Payment Fees are described in the chart below.
|Final Selling Price||Default Fee||Late Payment Fee
(per business day per item)
|€2,000 or less||€500||€10|
|€2,001 to €10,000||25%||€25|
|€10,001 to €20,000||25%||€50|
|€25,001 to €50,000||25%||€100|

If a bidder defaults on multiple items in the same auction the auction closing prices of the defaulted items will be added together to determine the applicable default payment.
