Referrals
You may refer friends to BidTropolis using the referral form on the  BidTropolis website. BidTropolis offers free bids to any user who refers new users who purchase a Bid Pack. BidTropolis reserves the right to review each referral for possible fraud. You may not refer family members or persons located in Your household. Any abuse of the referral system may result in the deduction of fraudulent bids awarded and/or the termination of Your account in BidTropoliss’ sole discretion.
Account Termination
BidTropolis reserves the right to temporarily or permanently terminate Your account at BidTropolis sole discretion if it determines or suspects You have violated these Terms & Conditions, any laws, or the rights of our other users or other third parties. Examples of unauthorized usage include, but are not limited to, the use of unauthorized third-party bidding or bid tracking software, the creation of multiple accounts by the same individual or other fraudulent account activity or behavior. You agree that if BidTropolis, in good faith and in its sole discretion, determines that You have breached these Terms & Conditions, BidTropolis may withhold, cancel, or otherwise retain any and all of Your pending deliveries and/or refunds for bids.
Bid Purchases / Bidding / AutoBidding
Bids are purchased in advance in the form of "Bid Packs." BidTropolis reserves the right to offer different size Bid Packs at different times. Should you not honor a payment, You will be charged a returned payment fee. BidTropolis reserves the right to block access to a user's account until payment in full of the invoice amount, including any fees due to returned payment, etc., and to withhold any outstanding deliveries until payment in full is received.
From time to time, free bids may be offered. Free bids are only valid until the expiration date stated in the promotion, which is typically seven days. Once a bid is placed in an auction, it is deducted from the user's bid account and can no longer be refunded, irrespective of whether or not the bid is successful.
You can place bids in two ways: (1) manually by clicking an auction's "Bid" button and/or (2) by using the AutoBidding function. AutoBidding is an automated feature which lets You bid on an auction even when You are not online or logged in. AutoBidding automatically places bids according to Your instructions. You can read more about how the AutoBidding operates in the "How It Works” sections.
A maximum of 10 seconds will be added to the timer and one bid will be deducted from Your account with each bid placed. An auction ends when the timer on the BidTropolis server(s) hits zero. The winner of an auction is the last bidder the database recorded before the timer on the BidTropolis server(s) hit zero.
Bids are a limited license to participate in BidTropolis auctions and have no monetary value. You may not obtain any money in exchange for Bids; however, BidTropolis has a limited return policy with respect to purchased Bid Packs. For one year after purchasing a Bid Pack, You have the right to a full refund for the purchase price of the unused bids remaining in the Bid Pack. Voucher and Free Bids are not eligible for a refund. To the extent there are unused Bids in Your account, and there has been no activity for one year, You will be charged an inactivity fee of five (5) Bids per month for each inactive Bid Pack. All Bids expire after two years of inactivity. Once we delete Bids we will not reinstate them, except at our discretion.
When you place Bids, the first Bids used will be Bids from Bid Packs, starting with the Bids that are going to expire the soonest. After Bids from Bid Packs are exhausted, Free Bids will be used, starting with the Bids that are closest to expiring. After Free Bids are exhausted, Voucher Bids are used, starting with the Bids that are closest to expiring. At BidTropolis sole discretion, You may be given an opportunity to select which type of bids to use on an auction.
If You ever believe that Your account does not reflect Bids that You have acquired validly, You must notify us within one month of the date You claim to have acquired the Bids.
BidTropolis attempts to limit some auctions to users of comparable skill, as determined by BidTropolis, to enhance user experience and maintain a viable business model. In so doing, BidTropolis may limit which auctions are available to particular users based on any factors deemed appropriate by BidTropolis in its sole discretion, including experience of the user, historical success of the user, demographic factors, prior bidding and spending activity, and other factors. In particular, BidTropolis may limit certain auctions to less experienced or successful users in any manner BidTropolis deems appropriate to optimize the overall user experience of all BidTropolis users. You acknowledge that You may be, and You consent to being, excluded from auctions at BidTropolis discretion.
BidTropolis may allow users in multiple countries to participate in a single auction. BidTropolis offers these auctions through a group of affiliates located in each country in which BidTropolis operates. By participating in these auctions, You agree that you are participating in them solely through the BidTropolis affiliate located in Your country. Although users participating in auctions are participating in a single auction, the actual item offered and bid upon, and the price at which such item is offered and bid upon, may vary based on the country in which the user is located. Although BidTropolis strives to offer identical or similar items to all users participating in a single auction at an identical or similar price, manufacturers' practices, product availability, currency exchange rates, and other factors make this impractical in some circumstances. By participating in an auction, You agree that BidTropolis may offer a different but similar (as determined by BidTropolis in its sole discretion) item at a different but similar (as determined by BidTropolis in its sole discretion) price to users located in other countries participating in the same auction.
BidTropolis may, in its sole discretion, offer auctions that allow users to choose the product they want from a specified list of products after they win an auction or choose. Although BidTropolis strives to offer products in an auction that are of an identical or similar price, manufacturers' practices, product availability, currency exchange rates and other factors make this impractical in some circumstances. By participating in auctions, you agree that BidTropolis may, in its sole discretion, offer different products at different but similar (as determined by BidTropolis in its sole discretion) prices.
BidTropolis reserves the right to, from time to time, in its sole discretion, change the price of bids.
Odds of Winning Auctions
Every auction is unique and the results of all auctions offered on BidTropolis depend on the number of users participating in such auctions and the skill of the users participating in the auctions; precise odds of winning are therefore unavailable.
Acceptance of the Win / Payment
After an auction has ended, You must actively confirm and pay the total price for the won auction. Once You have clicked on the confirmation button the win is accepted. If an auction win has not been confirmed and paid within three (3) days of the auction end date, BidTropolis may withdraw the offer to conclude the order and permanently revoke the winner's right to pay for and receive delivery of an item. If BidTropolis does this, all bids placed in that auction will be deemed expired and will be non-refundable. After confirming the win and paying the total amount due, the winner will receive a confirmation e-mail. The item will not be sent to You until the total price has been paid to BidTropolis. An invoice containing the auction price and shipping costs will be sent to You by BidTropolis.
With respect to items sold by BidTropolis, we cannot confirm the price of an item until You order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by BidTropolis is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify You of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.
Special Promotions
Any special promotions run by BidTropolis shall only be valid if they are announced on BidTropolis or in its corresponding email newsletter. Certain promotions may only be valid for a limited time, with details announced on BidTropolis or in our newsletter. Once the advertised time limit of any promotion has been reached, or the relevant auction or auctions have ended, the promotion is also finished.
Returns / Cancellations
BidTropolis allows winners the right to cancel or return an order if the incorrect item was received or grossly misrepresented.  You will be entitled to a refund of the auction end price (including shipping costs if no items have been shipped).  Bids placed on the auction are not eligible for a refund but will be replenished to your account. These cancellation rights end seven days after the day the winner received the goods.
Delivery
Deliveries are made exclusively to the 50 states of the United States, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico Some restrictions or higher shipping costs may apply to deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Unless otherwise stated, delivery will be made directly from our our warehouse to the address provided by You. Delivery times vary; therefore, any time provided is only a guide. BidTropolis shall be entitled to involve third parties to satisfy its contractual obligations without being required to notify the buyer. Obvious damage to the item from transport or packaging damaged during transport must be reported to BidTropolis upon receipt.
BidTropolis reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse shipment to outlying islands and territories. If You are a resident of an outlying island or territory and BidTropolis determines Your purchases cannot be shipped, BidTropolis will refund the purchase price of the items, including bids placed on those items.
Withholding Payment / Retention of Title
You agree that the item delivered shall remain BidTropolis property until BidTropolis  receives payment in full, including shipping costs and bids used in the auction.

When you place Bids, the first Bids used will be Bids from Bid Packs, starting with the Bids that are going to expire the soonest. After Bids from Bid Packs are exhausted, Free Bids will be used, starting with the Bids that are closest to expiring. After Free Bids are exhausted, Voucher Bids are used, starting with the Bids that are closest to expiring. At BidTropolis sole discretion, You may be given an opportunity to select which type of bids to use on an auction.
If You ever believe that Your account does not reflect Bids that You have acquired validly, You must notify us within one month of the date You claim to have acquired the Bids.
BidTropolis attempts to limit some auctions to users of comparable skill, as determined by BidTropolis, to enhance user experience and maintain a viable business model. In so doing, BidTropolis may limit which auctions are available to particular users based on any factors deemed appropriate by BidTropolis in its sole discretion, including experience of the user, historical success of the user, demographic factors, prior bidding and spending activity, and other factors. In particular, BidTropolis may limit certain auctions to less experienced or successful users in any manner BidTropolis deems appropriate to optimize the overall user experience of all BidTropolis users. You acknowledge that You may be, and You consent to being, excluded from auctions at BidTropolis discretion.
BidTropolis may allow users in multiple countries to participate in a single auction. BidTropolis offers these auctions through a group of affiliates located in each country in which BidTropolis operates. By participating in these auctions, You agree that you are participating in them solely through the BidTropolis affiliate located in Your country. Although users participating in auctions are participating in a single auction, the actual item offered and bid upon, and the price at which such item is offered and bid upon, may vary based on the country in which the user is located. Although BidTropolis strives to offer identical or similar items to all users participating in a single auction at an identical or similar price, manufacturers' practices, product availability, currency exchange rates, and other factors make this impractical in some circumstances. By participating in an auction, You agree that BidTropolis may offer a different but similar (as determined by BidTropolis in its sole discretion) item at a different but similar (as determined by BidTropolis in its sole discretion) price to users located in other countries participating in the same auction.
BidTropolis may, in its sole discretion, offer auctions that allow users to choose the product they want from a specified list of products after they win an auction or choose. Although BidTropolis strives to offer products in an auction that are of an identical or similar price, manufacturers' practices, product availability, currency exchange rates and other factors make this impractical in some circumstances. By participating in auctions, you agree that BidTropolis may, in its sole discretion, offer different products at different but similar (as determined by BidTropolis in its sole discretion) prices.
BidTropolis reserves the right to, from time to time, in its sole discretion, change the price of bids.
Odds of Winning Auctions
Every auction is unique and the results of all auctions offered on BidTropolis depend on the number of users participating in such auctions and the skill of the users participating in the auctions; precise odds of winning are therefore unavailable.
Acceptance of the Win / Payment
After an auction has ended, You must actively confirm and pay the total price for the won auction. Once You have clicked on the confirmation button the win is accepted. If an auction win has not been confirmed and paid within three (3) days of the auction end date, BidTropolis may withdraw the offer to conclude the order and permanently revoke the winner's right to pay for and receive delivery of an item. If BidTropolis does this, all bids placed in that auction will be deemed expired and will be non-refundable. After confirming the win and paying the total amount due, the winner will receive a confirmation e-mail. The item will not be sent to You until the total price has been paid to BidTropolis. An invoice containing the auction price and shipping costs will be sent to You by BidTropolis.
With respect to items sold by BidTropolis, we cannot confirm the price of an item until You order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by BidTropolis is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify You of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.
Special Promotions
Any special promotions run by BidTropolis shall only be valid if they are announced on BidTropolis or in its corresponding email newsletter. Certain promotions may only be valid for a limited time, with details announced on BidTropolis or in our newsletter. Once the advertised time limit of any promotion has been reached, or the relevant auction or auctions have ended, the promotion is also finished.
Returns / Cancellations
BidTropolis allows winners the right to cancel or return an order if the incorrect item was received or grossly misrepresented.  You will be entitled to a refund of the auction end price (including shipping costs if no items have been shipped).  Bids placed on the auction are not eligible for a refund but will be replenished to your account. These cancellation rights end seven days after the day the winner received the goods.
Delivery
Deliveries are made exclusively to the 50 states of the United States, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico Some restrictions or higher shipping costs may apply to deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Unless otherwise stated, delivery will be made directly from our our warehouse to the address provided by You. Delivery times vary; therefore, any time provided is only a guide. BidTropolis shall be entitled to involve third parties to satisfy its contractual obligations without being required to notify the buyer. Obvious damage to the item from transport or packaging damaged during transport must be reported to BidTropolis upon receipt.
BidTropolis reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse shipment to outlying islands and territories. If You are a resident of an outlying island or territory and BidTropolis determines Your purchases cannot be shipped, BidTropolis will refund the purchase price of the items, including bids placed on those items.
Withholding Payment / Retention of Title
You agree that the item delivered shall remain BidTropolis property until BidTropolis  receives payment in full, including shipping costs and bids used in the auction.
