Buyer's Premium - Why we will never charge it


With a number of other auction houses increasing their buyer's premium, it is important for auction participants, both buyer and seller to be aware on how buyer's premium affects them. Buyer's premium is a charge some auction houses impose on top of your winning bid. Say you win a coin for $100 and the auction house charges 19.25% buyer's premium; you'll end up paying $119.25 for the coin. If they charge a seller's commission of 15% then the seller gets $100 - 15%; $85, or 71% of the purchase price. (read more)
