How come my credit card statement shows the money was taken from my account even though my payment was denied?
What has occurred in this instance is that the charge in question was not approved by our payment system. This means that Bidz.com did not accept the funds. These funds are currently pending and are normally released by your financial intuition within 72 hours. You may also contact our Customer Service for further assistance.
Yes, we accept money order payments. Funds are in US dollars and you should have the correct total for your order. To do so, login and go to the payment center as if you were making a credit card payment. Select the items that you are paying for, but do not commit the order. Remember to put your username on the money order, and enclose the listing numbers your payment is for. Make sure to notify us that payment is in route, and be advised that you still should monitor your account, and request extensions, as needed.
We only accept US personal checks with a physical address; we do not accept checks with P.O. Box addresses. Customers outside the US have to send an International Money Order in US funds. (Check payments are processed within 48 hours. If the check amount is over $1000.00, it will be held for up to 10 business days awaiting clearance.)
Yes, we accept wire transfers only if the purchase total exceeds $500.00.
If are you interested in submitting payment via wire transfer please contact our Customer Service for further assistance.
Yes, since the payment is received sooner than with the standard delivery method. Allow 48 hours from the date the payment is received for your order to be processed.
All payments are subject to an auctioneering fee of 3% of the payment or a minimum fee of $0.50. It cover the cost associated with sourcing products, running the marketplace and managing services such as payment collection and fulfillment.
