Business Response: **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** I'm sorry if there was any miscommunication on our services, as that is not our intention. Please reference your contracts that you signed on 8/2/13 & 8/24/13. The reason we have written contracts on all of our consignment sales is so there is never any confusion on what you will receive and what are policies are. In reference to our fee, our service fee is 50% of the sale up to $500 of the sale and 45% for anything after. You will see that in the service fee section of the contract that you signed. In regards to the $15 you are referencing, our fee is a minimum of $15. You will see this referenced on the contract as well. In regards to the explanation of our fees, we tell customers that the 50% fee is comprised of ************* fees of 17% and 33% of a labor/service fee. 17 + 33 = 50, so the 1/3 of the sale price you are referencing is just how we explain the 50% that is taken out. Per our contract, you the consignor are typically paid anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks after an item sells. This process depends on when an item is paid for by the buyer, when it is shipped, and when it received by the buyer. We ship items every day on a first come first serve basis and per our **** auction terms items are shipped within 4 to 8 days of payment being received. If you have any other questions, please let me know. Thank you. Final Consumer Response /* (450, 20, 2013/09/30) */ The consumer indicated ONLINE that the business responded to this complaint to his/her satisfaction. He/she also stated: I WILL TAKE THE 50.00, NOBODY EVEN NOTIFIED ME THAT THEY RESPONDED......... Final Business Response /* (4000, 9, 2013/09/30) */ Good morning. I just spoke to you over the phone for over an hour. You requested that our discussions continue thru the online complaint, which I am happy to do for you. I understand that there was some confusion on our service fee and how it is charged. I again apologize for that; that is not our intention. Our service fee is listing in several places; on our website, in the store in our tri-fold brochures, and in the store in a 10 foot wide by 5 foot high sign that hangs over the check-in counter. On the contract our service fee is located on the front, underlined and bolded to make sure it cannot be missed. Again, you signed this contract twice on two separate occasions. You have been paid for all the items that you sold with us. You have been paid based on the contract that you signed. You verified on the phone that you have now received all of your checks for the items that you sold with us. Over the phone you requested an additional $100 for the confusion over the terms of the contract. You stated that if you received an additional $100 that you would consider the situation resolved. I explained to you that after the ************* fees, we did not make $100 off of sale of your sewing machine. Because of that I cannot offer you what we did not make. I did offer you $50 over the phone, which you declined. I am sorry we could not come to a resolution.
