Watch auctions have both an up and a down side. For the most part,
watches sold are genuine and come as they are described in the auction. In a
good scenario, buyers have all the information they need upfront. This
includes the shipping cost, return policy, insurance fees, etc. As with
everything else on the internet, there is also a down side to watch
auctions, which some people may come across at some point. Buyers may be
taken advantage of by buying merchandise that is not being advertised
One protective step to take as a buyer is to always check the sellerís feedback rating. As a buyer, you hope that the person you are buying from has a clear history of selling and no complaints. Another important factor to check is how long the seller has been around conducting business. This matched up with the feedback should indicate whether this is someone you would like to purchase a watch from or not.
Once you are ready to place a bid, be smart about it! This is the part you have full control of. Make sure you stick to your original price. Donít forget to include the cost of shipping and any other fees that may apply to the total of your watch. If you donít keep all these in mind, before you know itÖ The watch you thought you were getting a great deal on, will end up costing more than you ever imagined.
At the end of the day online watch auctions can sometimes can advantage of buyers, but knowing what to watch out for and educating yourself about the possibilities out there, can protect you from unforeseen issues and opens the door for great resources for finding cheap and unique watches that you wouldnít necessarily be able to find in any store located in your local mall.
