Internet bidding terms and conditions

1.  ADDITIONAL SERVICE.  Where possible bidders should submit a Postal Bid prior to the Postal Bid closing time, to ensure you have a bid on our books. Internet bidding is a service offered by Philatelics (Australia) Pty Ltd to allow all bidders, wherever they may be, to compete in an auction like environment in a fair and equitable manner. The Internet is prone to slow downs and outages and so both Philatelics (Australia) Pty Ltd and Interbid wish to warn users that it may not be possible to bid over the Internet. When bidding from home other interruptions such as a phone call or a computer crash at an inappropriate time may mean your bid can not be entered, so we highly recommend you enter a Postal Bid as well as using the Interbid facility.
