About Internet Auctions

       Harmers is proud to offer continual online auctions. This allows sellers to quickly list and auction items. While the format and media is similar to what customers are familiar with in the popular auction site Ebay, e-Harmers seeks a “true” auction backed by the Harmer integrity.


e-Harmer Difference

     One of the major differences between e-Harmers and EBay is the auction format. In Ebay the auction ends at a scheduled time. This results in a flurry of bids at the end of the auction where the timing of the bid is more significant than the amount of the bid.

      In an Ebay auction, the bidder willing to pay the highest amount does not necessarily win the lot.

      A Harmer auction will continue as long as bidding is active. An auction scheduled to close at 9pm will be automatically extended until bidding as ceased.

     This means our sellers maximize the price they receive for their item.

Harmer Integrity

      We insist upon the same quality and integrity in our online auctions that we do in our Live Auctions. Buyers have the assurances that the items they buy on line will be as described. Harmers does not allow everyone to sell in our online auctions.

- All individual sellers MUST be approved by Harmers and agree to Harmer���s Individual Sellers Guidelines, which include escrow payments.

-Any material offered by individual sellers MUST have a current certificate of authenticity by a recognized authority.

-Individuals wishing to sell items without certificates can list through a Harmer approved e-lister who will, for a fee, personally inspect, ship and manage your transaction.

e-Harmers Fees

      We aim for simplicity. We offer on-line auctions as a service to our customers both the buyers and the sellers. The services we provide are beyond that of normal auction sites. Our fee structure is fair and representative of our service; they are constructed to encourage the sale of philatelic material.
