Some sellers agree to use an escrow service. For a fee, generally 5 percent of the cost of the item paid by the buyer, an escrow service accepts payment from the buyer via check, money order or credit card. The service releases the money to the seller only after the buyer receives and approves the merchandise. It helps protect buyers from ending up empty-handed after paying their money. Using an escrow service can delay the deal. As with any business transaction, investigate the escrow service's reputation before signing on to the service.
eCRATER is one of the smallest online auction sites, but the seller verification policies make it very appealing, especially if you’re just getting started. The site charges no monthly subscription fees or a seller verification fee. In addition, you don't pay a final value fee on items you've sold, unless the item was sold through the main marketplace. Even then, the fee is just 2.9 percent of the sale, a significantly lower percentage than sites like eBay. With fewer upfront fees, it's easy to get started auctioning off items. However, eCRATER has some significant limitations for full-time sellers. For starters, the site only has about 65,000 users, so the total number of eyeballs you get on items is not going to compete with larger auction sites. Secondly, you can't sell and ship anywhere outside the U.S. And finally, eCRATER doesn't support HTML or other coding, and this limits your ability to customize your store to fit your brand, limiting your growth as a seller.
If there’s a “catch” to government car auctions, it’s that there’s competition in the bidding. If the car you want is popular and in great condition, you can expect other people, including used-car dealers, to be just as interested in it as you are. Competition and heavy bidding will drive auction prices up — sometimes beyond the real value of the vehicle. Don’t get caught up in the frenzy and overpay. Set a spending limit on each car you’re interested in.
I, too, unfortunately did not research before starting business with these frauds. All their products appear fake and I doubt it's a real auction at all - I saw what appeared to be glitches in software. I had to have my credit card cancelled and have multiple transactions in dispute with my bank; I am going to try to dispute the shipping charges as well, as that's how I think they keep making money. Google playstore is working on removing their mobile app, as they also found some anomalies in addition to my report (which doesn't work well anyway - another red flag). Have reported them to the FTC. Will be reporting to other federal agencies, UPS, the Postmaster General, and the State of California, as that is where there merchandise is sent from, and to anybody else who will listen.
Technological advances have contributed to the rise and evolution of this part of the eCommerce marketplace. eBay, for example, has been quick to jump on the growing demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI), embedding AI technology, to help sellers become more competitive. eBay’s AI solutions involve identifying gaps in product inventories, alerting sellers when they need to stock up on a particular product. eBay’s evolving features have proven to be of benefit to sellers, creating some legitimate success stories. However, despite eBay being at the forefront of the increasingly competitive online auction market, online sellers should always consider alternative solutions.

Many auctions have a preview period of about two days preceding the auction in which you can look over and inspect the vehicles. However, in most cases, you will not be able to drive the vehicles although you can start them and check them over as much as you like. And there are no warranties or guarantees, which is no different than most other used-car sales.

Depending on the agency, the government may use revenue from auctioned items to support crime-prevention programs, pay restitution to crime victims or purchase new equipment the department needs. "By providing agencies with the ability to dispose of excess assets, GSA benefits taxpayers by eliminating the need to maintain and store the unneeded property while also raising more than $300 million in revenue in just the last two years," a GSA spokesperson said.
