Bidding and Buying
All bids on the Website are a firm commitment to purchase. If you are the purchaser/highest bidder for any item and your purchase/ bid is accepted by the seller ("Winning buyer"), you are obligated to complete the transaction with the seller.
An action to purchase or bids may be increased in price or volume later but may not be withdrawn. Purchases/Bids cannot be cancelled. By purchasing/bidding on an item you agree to be bound by the conditions of sale included in the item's description (or linked to from the description) so long as those conditions of sale are not in violation of the User Agreement or unlawful.
Primedeq strongly advises you not to test the Website with false bids/purchases, as it will put you at substantial personal legal risk. It is an offence to use a false name, other false personal information or a known invalid/ unauthorized credit/ debit/ cash card / payment wallets and such other infrastructure directly through Bank or financial institution infrastructure or indirectly through Payment Aggregator or through any facility in any manner to bid. Wilfully entering erroneous or fictitious bids may result in prosecution by Primedeq.
As a Winning buyer you must contact the seller within 72 hours of auction closing successfully.
Please be aware that even if you do not give Primedeq your real name, your Web browser transmits a unique address to us, which can be used by law enforcement officials to identify you. If you are a registered buyer on the Website we encourage you to post feedback on the seller after the auction is closed.
Priority in Bidding
In order to qualify and be identified as a successful bid, the following priority parameters will be followed:
Price: The higher price bids always supersedes the lower price bids;
Quantity: Between bids of the same price, the bid for the higher quantity shall supersede;
Time: Between bids of the same price and for the same quantity, the bid which was placed prior in point of time shall supersede. Primedeq's decision on the success or otherwise of a bid shall be final and binding. It reserves the right to reject or void bids, whether winning or not, that it deems not to have been made in good faith, or that are restricted or prohibited.
An auction will be considered as successfully closed if it receives at least one bid prior to the Auction End Date i.e. the date and time (as specified in that particular auction) beyond which bids shall not be accepted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a reserve auction will be considered as successfully closed if at least one bid above the Reserve Price is received prior to the Auction End Date.
Immediately after any auction is successfully closed an e-mail is sent to both the Winning bidder and the seller providing each of them the contact information of the other party (contact phone number if allowed by them when bidding/selling) to enable them to get in touch with each other to fulfill the transaction. Please note that the contact information that will be sent out will be the information that is provided by the Users in their Registration Data on Website.
The reverse auction process on the Website shall be as follows:
The Buyer posts an invitation to bid (IFB) through Website’s reverse auction process for purchase of any goods or services;
Each Seller reviews the Specifications and either submits or does not submit a bid (during the Reverse Auction process, each Seller may submit multiple bids);
If Seller submits a bid, Seller must proactively confirm compliance with all Specifications and be responsive to all bid Validation or due diligence requests; or if Seller chooses not to submit a Bid, Seller may submit a no Bid or not respond;
The Buyer reviews bids, performs Due Diligence, and decides to:
cancel the IFB, in which case all participating Sellers will be notified;
repost the IFB with modifications, in which case the Bid Process begins anew;
extend the auction period to allow for more Bids to be submitted; or
select a Bid, in which case the Buyer enters the Authorization Number into the Web Site, and each party receives the other party’s contact Information.
Those Sellers not selected may view the Selected Bid amount and, as permitted by the Buyer, the identity of the Selected Seller.
All Sellers submitting Bids on an IFB will compete in the Buy until the Buy process expires as specified in the IFB and as determined by the Web Site system clock.
Throughout the bidding process, Primedeq will rank the Bids based on Best Price; however, the Buyer maintains the right to use Offline Factors for award decisions.
Primedeq will provide Sellers with their Bid Status, consisting of: Selected or Not Selected; or Cancelled. If two or more equal Bids are submitted, they will be ranked according to time of submission, with the previously submitted equal bid leading as compared to any subsequently submitted equal Bid.
A Buyer is never obligated to complete the transaction, regardless of the status of the buy, and a Buyer may select any of the participating Sellers in order to obtain the most advantageous bid in accordance with their contracting authority and applicable rules and regulations; however, the Selected Seller may not retract or cancel its Selected bid except in the extraordinary event that the Buyer:
materially changes the description and/or quantity of the Commercial Items specified in the IFB,
has materially misrepresented the Commercial Items in the IFB; or
a system error has occurred on the Web Site creating an error in the bid(s) or IFB.
A Buyer cannot award specific IFB line items to multiple Sellers or otherwise designate more than one Selected Seller per Buy unless specified to the contrary in the IFB.
A Buyer cannot solicit or accept Partial bids in a Reverse Auction.
Non-compliance with Primedeq’s bid Process may subject You to negative ratings from the Website’s Subscribers and may lead to suspension or revocation of some or all of Your website access privileges.
