In case the winning bidder does not come through with the payment within the three days your funds will be delayed.
We do not pay you for an item until we have been paid, furthermore, if the winning bidder rejects the machine and refuses to pay Swanston Equipment is not held responsible, the item can then be relisted at no charge or your listing fee be reimbursed.
