We currently schedule auctions to run from the 1st to the 8th of every month or during a scheduled Coral Farmers market event.
Auction Pricing Polcy - We are currently reevaluating our auction pricing policy. We have left Ebay auctions due to the following reasons: Ebays failure to support intellectual property rights; Ebays failure to enforce its own rules against specific sellers; Ebays failure to allow Reeffarmers to link to external web pages; and due to EBays very unpredictable high and low end bids. Suffice it to say, there are numerous sellers on Ebay who are utilizing images they do not own nor do they even possess the coral in the image. Nothing can be done to stop them. Buyers need to be aware that Ebay is not policing its best sellers properly. We will temporarily be utilizing the Corals Farmer Markets discussion forums to handle auction bid postings. The starting minimum bid price are an estimate for the going rate of corals in the spot market. This price will be raised and lowered depending on the previous auction bid history. For example - If a coral does not get a bid at the minimum bid price, that minimum price will be lowered for the next auction of this coral. The next auction will typically occur in two months and the minimum bids will be typically lowered by $25 if there was no bid on the previous auction. Reeffarmers reserves the right to distribute Auctioned Edition corals that did not recieve a bid to our private customer base. We also reserve the right to raise minimum bids for corals that frequently sell for amounts that are significantly higher then the auctioned corals minimum bid amount. The minimum bid price will be set 1 to 2 weeks before each auction and will not change until after each auction completes.
