Just email your list to us and we do the rest. There is no need for you to enter all your items on the auction or keep track of auction starts and closings. We handle everything for you and your items are re- listed automatically until sold. Do Not Send Your Items To Us - You will be instructed to ship direct to the buyer.


 Returns: It is the responsibility of the buyer to return the item to the seller in order to receive a refund. We can't refund money until the item is returned to the seller. When the item is received by the seller in the same condition it was sent, the buyer will receive a refund. If the item is returned without authorization the buyer is responsible for all additional costs (if any) related to the shipment. Shipping costs on items returned are not refundable since that money has already been paid to the shipping company.
 Note: Please be courteous to our customers and do not list your items with other auctions, classified ads or sell them in swap meets. If the item is sold in two listings some magician will have to be disappointed if you only have one to sell. If your item is found to be listed elsewhere it will be removed from the auction. Let us know if you want to sell your item elsewhere we will put it on hold or remove it.

You do not pay a commission on your asking price - your asking price is what you receive.
Keep this in mind when setting your asking price. Shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer unless otherwise stated by the seller in the listing.

Buyers pay a separate shipping charge for each item purchased. If you list an item you are accepting our terms and conditions.

 Auctions close each Wednesday, items sold, upon receipt of payment from the buyer will be shipped.
When received in acceptable condition by buyer we will send the seller their asking price.
If your item has not sold after a few weeks you can lower your price or remove the listing.

Auctions close each Wednesday at 10:00 PM Eastern Time.
Winning bidders will be notified by e-mail the day after the auction closes.

Since we have to list the item, update the site every time a bid is made, notify the bidder when he wins the item, collect the money for the seller, Notify the seller to ship with instructions, provide packing materials and ship for sellers, plus send the check to the seller, not to mention the bookkeeping and cost of a commercial site. That's a lot of work for a 10% commission. This system has worked well for over 20 years is fair to everyone. The seller receives his asking price, the buyer purchases at a discount and we make a profit on anything over your asking price - which also helps offset our cost to run the auction.
No one pays an advertising fee and there is no password or entrance fee.
 

 Our Seller Guarantee:
Your items will not be shipped until the money is collected from the winning bidder and it clears the bank. It is your responsibility to state the true condition of your items to be sold. If an item is received in poor or worn condition you may have it returned, unless the items condition was clearly stated in your listing. Be specific in your descriptions. If an item is received by a buyer in unsatisfactory condition the seller will be put in contact with the buyer to settle the matter. If a reasonable settlement is not reached in 10 days the item will be sent back to the seller. If you are clear and detailed in your description of the condition of your items you will avoid a return. We are not responsible for disputes between buyers and sellers after 30 days. Magicauction.com is not responsible for fees paid by buyers or sellers on cancelled transactions. Fees for sending payments are charged by Banks / PayPal and are deducted from the original amount before we receive the payment, therefore we do not have the fee to refund. Whenever possible on Pay Pal refunds we will send the refund within 60 days to insure that Pay Pal also refunds the fee. On wire transfers or money orders there is no way for us to refund the cost or fee charged. Sellers listing Knock offs of original illusions, trying to pass off a counterfeit copy as an original or selling any props that are not authorized by the originator or manufacturer are not permitted to be listed at Magicauction.com
 

 Returns: It is the responsibility of the buyer to return the item to the seller in order to receive a refund. We can't refund money until the item is returned to the seller and he receives it. When the item is received by the seller in the same condition it was sent, the buyer will receive a refund. If the item is returned without authorization the buyer is responsible for all additional costs (if any) related to the shipment. Shipping costs on items returned are not refundable since that money has already been paid to the shipping company.
 

 Seller Notice: Buyers making payments by credit card, wire transfer or similar payment options - all charges will be absorbed by the seller. There is usually a $20.00 bank charge to receive a wire transfer. Orders paid by Pay Pal or Credit Card will cost the seller approx. four percent plus a .30 fee for Pay Pal to process the transaction. Pay Pal E-Checks - flat fee.
