How do I complete the auction process once I have won an item?

MrBuyGuy has a comprehensive auction managment system once you have won an auction.  When you win an auction either by been the highest bidder on an auction or by using the instant buy option, MrBuyGuy will send you an email.This email will congragulate you on your win and ask you to click on a link.  This link will take you to the auction management area.  Alternatively you can also find this link by logging into your MrBuyGuy account clicking on My Account on the top header of the website, clicking on the buying tab on the left hand side and clicking on won auctions.  Then under the selected auction click on the choose link and press the manage option

There are several steps to complete when managing your won item.  The first is to confirm the address that you would like the item to be shipped to.  Your default address will be displayed initially however if you would like to you can choose other addresses that you have saved.  Once you have selected your address you can then choose the shipping method for your item.  Depending on the location of the seller and the sellers shipping options selected for the item, different shipping methods will be displayed. For example,  if your purchasing an item in the same country as the seller you may be given a list of different shipping options to select from.  Alternatively if the seller has offered free shipping you will not be charged for the shipping. 

If you are buying an item from a different country you will be prompted to contact the seller in order to receive a shipping cost based on your shipping location. Once the shipping cost has been confirmed you can then select the payment method you would like to use to pay for the item,  again it will depend on the sellers selected payment methods for what payment options will be available.  For example, if the seller selects Paypal as a payment method you will be able to automatically go to Paypal and pay for the item.  Once the item has been payed for, the seller will be notified that the item is ready for shipping.  Alternatively you can pay through direct deposit,  in this case you will be presented with the sellers bank account details and will be able to pay through internet banking or at the banks local branch. 

Once you have payed through this method you can let the seller know and they can look out for the payment at their end.  Once the seller has shipped the item they will send a confirmation to MrBuyGuy and you will receive an email with this confirmation as well as any track and trace details for the item.  When you recieve the item you can go back to the manage auction section and confirm you have recieved the item.  At this point you will also be prompted to place feedback on the item.  MrBuyGuy highly recommends that you place feedback for every auction you participate in because it helps make the auction community a safer environment.

How can I locate the items I want to buy?

 You can easily locate items on MrBuyGuy either by searching or browsing. Depending on what you are looking for, each process has its advantages.

a) Searching

I have paid for an item but have not received it. What should I do?

 If you have paid for an item but you have not received it, or if you have not heard from the seller since paying for the item,  your first course of action should be to contact the seller.  Bear in mind that on weekends and on public holidays sellers might not be working.  Give the seller sufficient time to get back to you. 

If you fail to hear back from the seller after a reasonable length of time, your next course of action is to use MrBuyGuy Buyer Protection.

To do this, select Dispute under the Choose option next to your won auction.  This will take you to the Dispute section where you can enter in the details of the dispute you would like to submit.  Once you have completed and submitted your information, the seller will be notified and a formal dispute wlll be placed  against them.  The seller will then be prompted to reply to the dispute. 

Tthe buyer and seller should work together to solve the problem. 

If the seller does not reply, MrBuyGuy will intervene and try to contact the seller for you.  In some cases, we will suspend the seller and pass details on to law enforcements to bring legal action against sellers who are committing fraud.
