The packaging may be in various states including: opened, distressed and/or missing. There may be units that lack essential components, accessories, and documentation. Best practices indicate higher yields through combining SALVAGE parts/components to create working units. Tested Not Working (Salvage) inventory can also be used for parts harvesting.

Real Time Bidding
- How do I place a bid?
First, login to your account then select the auction you want to bid on. If you do not have an account, take a moment and set one up. Enter your bid in the space next the green “BID NOW” button. Your bid must be equal to or greater than the “STARTING PRICE” or “CURRENT BID” to be valid.
** Please note, new users are required to confirm their email address, and enter/confirm a payment method prior to bidding. Please ensure you have sufficient time to complete these steps prior to the ending of the auction you are trying to bid on.
- How does the bidding system work?
When bidding, enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the auction. If there are no other bids on the auction when you bid, your bid will be raised to the auction’s reserve price. If the reserve price for an auction is higher than your maximum bid then the maximum bid price will be entered right away. If/as other bids are placed for this auction, your bid will automatically/incrementally increase to maintain you as the high bidder up to the maximum bid price you set.
If/when your maximum bid is exceeded, you will receive an email notification informing you so you can make a decision to continue bidding at the higher price point. In order to win an auction the reserve price must be met. If an auction completes and the reserve price has not been met, the highest bid will not win that auction.

- Why can’t I place a bid without adding a credit card to my account?
In order to maintain a secure marketplace and ensure the bidding process includes only verified bidders, Direct Liquidation requires all users to verify a payment method prior to bidding.

If you have a valid credit card but fail the credit card authorization, please contact our Customer Service Team (1-800-679-9451 or [email protected]) to assist you.

Please note, your order status will change to “PROCESSING” until payment is confirmed. Since Bank Wires cannot be immediately confirmed, it may take one (1) business day before this status is updated. Once payment has been confirmed, your order status will change to “PAID – NOT SHIPPED”.
Please note the maximum amount that can be charged to credit card is $10,000. Any order over this amount must be paid via bank wire only.
- How can I save an auction to view and bid on later?

When this button is pressed the auction will be bookmarked to a page called “Watch List” which can be accessed from the “My Account” menu. Items on your “Watch List” will only display while an auction is active. Once the auction completes, it will be removed from your “Watch List” page automatically by the system.

- I had the highest bid but I did not win the auction what happened?
When the reserve price for an auction is not met by auction close, no winner will be declared even though there may have been bids received.
- What is the auction count down timer?

Buy Now Price

The “BUY NOW” price allows you to bypass the bidding process and instantly purchase a listing.

Since selecting “BUY NOW” removes the inventory from active bidding, payment must be made within 48 hours of selecting “BUY NOW”. Not all auction listings contain a “BUY NOW” price.
- A listing had a “Buy Now” price but it disappeared. What happened?
The “BUY NOW” price will appear on auctions until the reserve price has been reached. Once a bid is entered that is higher than the reserve price, “BUY NOW” price will disappear from the listing and only auction bidding will be allowed until the auction ends.

If the order has been prepared and available for pick up or shipment, a 30% restocking fee may apply.
- Is your payment processing gateway secure?
Yes. Our entire website and checkout process features 256 bit SSL security which is the highest standard currently available. COMODO, the most trusted name in the industry, provides our SSL certificate. For further security, we also utilize Norton Secure to consistently monitor for malware, malicious links, and phishing attacks.
- Are my payment details stored securely in “My Wallet”?
Direct Liquidation does not store credit card information or payment details on its servers or databases. Your payment information is stored securely with the merchant bank used to process your payments. This ensures potential attackers will never obtain usable financial information from Direct Liquidation’s website databases.
For further security, we require that you re-enter the CVV security code located on the back of your credit card each time you check out using our system. This ensures if your account were to be compromised an attacker would not be able to purchase on Direct Liquidation using your credit card.

Please note, we require proof of payment be sent to Customer Service within two (2) business days after you have been invoiced in order to avoid default on the bidding contract and being subjected to late fee/penalties.
- How can I check the status of a payment?
Login and navigate to the “ORDERS” page under the “MY ACCOUNT” menu to track order progress/payment status. Credit card payments clear immediately; changing the status from “UNPAID” to “PAID” instantly.
