What is Buyer's Premium?

Buyer's premium (BP) is a percentage that is added on top of the final bid price.  BP will be collected on every item sold on K-BID.  This percentage can be found in the terms for each auction, but is typically 13% for items that sell below $5,000 and 10% for items that sell above $5,000. Buyer's premium is capped at $1,000/item (real estate excluded). For example, a $100.00 winning bid will equal an invoice amount of $113 plus applicable sales taxes.
