It is standard practice across all auctions worldwide and is less than others charge. All bidders must pay Buyer’s Premium with no exceptions. For example, if the final price for a lot is one thousand euros (€1,000.00), the Buyer’s Premium of 25% will be added for a total price of one thousand two hundred and fifty euros (1,250.00 €)

Reserve Prices

Therefore, if the reserve is not met, the item will not be sold. Any item that features a reserve price will indicate if the reserve has been met or not if possible.
