6. DEPOSITS, FEES, PAYMENT AND DELIVERIES
6.1 For its services, AutoAuctionMall.com charges a fee for vehicles sold and/or purchased (whether through an auction process, as a Buy it Now or in any other way) on the Site. This fee is $249 for vehicles purchased between $1 and $3,499 or a fee of $299 for vehicles purchased above $3,500 (the “Auto Auction Mall Fee”). Listings will have additional fees in connection with the vehicle purchase, such as a documentation fee of $75 (which covers title transfers, courier and other related charges) and an auction clearing house fee which varies based on the vehicle purchase price, auction type and location. Each listing will set out the associated fees and expenses for that vehicle in the fee calculator. For all listings, the fee calculator shows, along with the other fees, the estimated auction clearing house fee based on the then highest pre-bid. The auction clearing house fee shall change if the final purchase price is higher than the highest pre-bid. For buy now listings, if you wish to see the auction clearing house fee based on the buy now price, click the Buy Now button and all such fees will be set out in the pop-up. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the auction clearing house fee that will be charged to You on the purchase of the vehicle (and which is also shown in the fee calculator and the buy now fee breakdown on the Site) is based on the unsecured payment method. For some auction clearing houses this is “Fee B” or the “Schedule B” fee. You acknowledge and agree that You shall pay all of the fees and costs set out in this paragraph in connection with Your purchase of the vehicle.
6.2 In addition to the above, You agree to pay all other customary auction fees and charges for services rendered in connection with the purchase and sale of vehicles, including, without limitation, gate fees, buyer fees, sale fees, entry fees, loading fees, storage fees, and other such fees and charges. It is the sole responsibility of the Buyer to verify fees charged by AutoAuctionMall.com prior to incurring such charges. All fees and charges are subject to change without notice.
6.3 Deposit payments made towards placing a bid on a vehicle can be paid by credit card or by wire transfer. You acknowledge that AutoAuctionMall.com may require additional documentation from You in connection with its fraud prevention and security measures program before it approves any credit card deposit made by You. You acknowledge and agree that You shall provide AutoAuctionMall.com such additional documentation, including, without limitation, a copy of a government issued identification, a copy of the credit card used for the deposit and any other documentation reasonably required to ascertain Your identity as part of AutoAuctionMall.com’s fraud prevention and security measures program, all of which are for your protection. Prior to any credit card charge, You agree to sign an authorization letter for all charges.
6.4 Payment for vehicles purchased through the Site must be made within two (2) days following the date of purchase of the vehicle by wire transfer only to AutoAuctionMall’s bank account. Vehicles not paid for within the above-specified timeframe will be subject to a Late Fee of $100 (or more depending on the auction clearing house) per vehicle per day.
6.5 Should AutoAuctionMall.com acquire a vehicle(s) for You (and/or on Your behalf), whether by way of, without limitation, being the highest bidder at the auction for the vehicle(s), through a “buy it now” option, or any other way, and You default on Your acceptance of Your obligation to pay for the vehicle(s) in full, You unconditionally acknowledge and agree that Your deposit will be automatically forfeited to AutoAuctionMall.com to cover a portion of the losses that AutoAuctionMall.com will incur (including, without limitation, re-listing fees, late fees and storage fees charged by the auction clearing house, filing fees of $200 and any additional fees incurred by AutoAuctionMall.com) and such deposit shall become the sole and lawful property and possession of AutoAuctionMall.com. You further acknowledge and agree that You have considered the amount of the losses AutoAuctionMall.com may incur as a result of Your breach and have also considered Your deposit and that Your deposit is a reasonable estimation of a portion of the losses that AutoAuctionMall.com is likely to suffer as a result of a breach of Your obligation to pay for the vehicle(s) in full. You further agree that this paragraph operates as a liquidated damages provision and not as a penalty.
6.6 You acknowledge and agree that in addition to the paragraphs set out in this Section 6, should AutoAuctionMall.com acquire a vehicle(s) for You (and/or on Your behalf), whether by way of, without limitation, being the highest bidder at the auction of the vehicle, through a “buy it now” option, or any other way, and You do not pay for the vehicle(s) in full, AutoAuctionMall.com will, in addition to any other fees and losses it has incurred, charge You a service fee (“Service Fee”) to cover their representative’s time to find, negotiate and execute the purchase of the vehicle(s) you have chosen. This Service Fee will be equivalent to the deposit that You have made with AutoAuctionMall.com. Notwithstanding the foregoing, You agree that You will still be responsible for any and all other fees and expenses (including, without limitation, the Auto Auction Mall Fee and the fees set out in paragraph 8 below) that AutoAuctionMall.com incurs as a result of Your default to pay for the vehicle(s) that you have agreed to purchase.
6.7 If Your deposit is not sufficient to cover the fees set out in paragraphs 6.5 and 6.6 above, You acknowledge and agree to immediately pay AutoAuctionMall.com the remaining fees and expenses it has incurred as a result of Your default on Your acceptance of Your obligation to pay for the vehicle(s) in full that AutoAuctionMall.com acquired on Your behalf. You further acknowledge and agree that until such time as you have paid all outstanding amounts owed to AutoAuctionMall.com for and in connection with any vehicle(s) that You have purchased from AutoAuctionMall.com (including, without limitation, the purchase price of the vehicle(s), the fees and taxes in connection with the purchase of the vehicle(s) and any late payment and storage fees in connection with the vehicle(s)), AutoAuctionMall.com shall have the right to withhold sending you: (i) the original title and/or reassignment of title to such unpaid vehicle(s) and (ii) the original title and/or reassignment of title to any other vehicle(s) that you have purchased from AutoAuctionMall.com (“Other Vehicles”), even if such Other Vehicles have been paid in full and do not have an outstanding balance.
