Auction: You will receive an email with the results within 24h after the closure of the sale and be paid within 35 days. Binding purchase: instant payment after the checking of the wines.
iDealwine will give you a valuation of your wines based on previous results at auction. If you require faster payment you can request a binding purchase. For binding purchases, the price offered is the lowest estimate minus the sales commission.
The iDealwine price estimate is regularly updated and is an average calculated from most recent auction. It consists of the hammer price and the buyer's premium.
The reserve price is the starting auction price for a lot, i.e. the price below which a lot cannot be sold. This reserve price is automatically set as the low estimate provided. The vendor can set a reserve below the lower estimate, or opt not to set any reserve. In the latter case, the auction starting price will be fixed at €1 to encourage competition between bidders, which is very popular with wine enthusiasts.
At auction, you are charged seller’s commission once your wines have been sold and before payment is settled. It includes the cost of expertise, insurance and wine storage prior to sale. It also considers iDealwine’s advertisement of your wine to its global customer base (55 countries).
At every stage of the sale (from receipt to dispatch) the bottles are stored in a secure facility at an appropriate temperature. iDealwine holds an insurance policy covering wine stored on behalf of a third party.
Each auction sale lasts approximately ten days. During this period, your wine will be given prominent exposure and high visibility on our website.
You can follow your wines throughout the sale. You can use your account to track bids on each of your lots in real time.
