New auctions every month. You have the opportunity to get up to -30% off
if you bid in our auctions of selected products. This is the excellent award
for those who buy early.
How auctions work
The products being sold in auction are offered with a discount with
respect to their standard prices. The discount is lowered in decrements of
1% per day until a bidder accepts the current price. Unless otherwise
stated, only one unit of each announced product is auctioned at a
time, so, the discounted price will be applied only to the first customer
who buys it. If nobody has sent a bid by the end of the month or when the
discount reaches the 0%, the auction finishes for that item and will not
be auctioned in the following months.
Price in auctions
The discount that the auction winner get on the Nth
day of the month is (31-N)%.
Example: Suppose we are auctioning one Double fretted
Clavichord kit in March: the bidding starts the first day of the month at
its catalogue price with a 30% discount (=31-1). In the following days, the
discount is successively reduced to -29%, -28%, -27%, etc. On March 6th,
when the price reaches -25% (=31-6), you decide to accept that price and
send the order form to book the clavichord kit and proceed to the payment.
Because you are the first bidder to do so, you win the auction and the
clavichord will be deleted of the list of auctioned products of this month.
A bid is valid when the order form
is received but it will only be effective if the
payment is arranged in the same day.
Otherwise the applied discount will correspond with the day when the payment
funds are cleared but only if, in the interval, we have not received another
paid bid and finished the auction.
Auctions are only alive while published in this page. If two or more
orders are received together from different customers so we hadn't had time
to remove the auction, we will apply the corresponding discount to the first
received and paid order and, if possible, subsequent discounts (in the
succession of -1%) to the following orders received and paid while the
auction was published.
The discounted prices are valid only for the
indicated products and period and cannot be accumulated with any
other discount, offer or promotion. Shipping cost will be invoiced at
the standard prices according to the destination zone. In order to save in
shipping and payment costs, other products and accessories can be purchased
at the same than the auction but will be invoiced at their standard prices
unless other offers can be applied to them.
