Buyer Tips

Guide to Auction

Through our Droom Auction pricing format, Droom Auction allows buying and selling of automobiles using a bidding process wherein vehicle is sold to highest bidder. By providing this trading mechanism, we allow buyers to buy vehicles at unique prices. Registered buyers can participate in the auction and can make unlimited bids. Droom Auction specifies the minimum bid value and also the minimum bid increment value. Listing gets deactivated when auction is over, or the highest bidder pays the 2% - 3% token amount. The highest bidder is obligated to buy the vehicle, and can meet the seller to close the deal.
