I have been ok with Invaluables until today. If I bid at an auction house through Invaluables I knew I would pay an increased premium Then, Invaluables went to BID PARITY. This means it is the same premium you pay if you were on the auction floor. This was acceptable. NOW...invaluables. com is charging for accounts. So, they have now come full circle to the buyer paying the bid price, the auction premium AND a fee to have an account. Today, I was asked to select an account type. ALL choices included "pay for play"! I have bid on their site numerous times. NOW THEY WANT TO CHARGE TOO? A buyer pays the bid; pays the shipping, pays the tax, and now pays invaluable.com for the privilege of bidding on their site. As a result, your bid price can be doubled by the time invaluables.com is finished with you. I recommend every buyer and auctioneer boycott invaluable.com. It is simply too expensive to pay all the fees! I haven't seen liveauctioneers.com do this yet but they would be wise to stay clear of charging for accounts for buyers.
