Final Value Fee:

When your item sells, you pay 5% of the final transaction value. We call this a final value fee. We cap final value fees so you'll never pay more than £150 for a single item. If your item doesn't sell you usually don't pay a final value fee. However, if you offer or reference your contact information to another user or ask a buyer for their contact information, in the context of buying or selling outside of Hoofpick, we charge a final value fee for introducing you to the buyer. In this case, the final value fee is based on the higher of the fixed price, auction start price, reserve price or the price identified between the buyer and seller.

Transfer of funds will take place between you and the successful winner of the auction. We will invoice you separately to collect the Final Value Fee.

When an Auction ends, you will need to contact us to remove this listing from your account and make a new listing available for you to use (unless it's expired). You can do this by using the chat widget in the bottom right to get in touch.
