Rigorous inspection system that allows members to purchase products without virtually seeing them
Taking seriously the fact that members purchase products without virtually seeing them, we carefully check defects in our products under a rigorous inspection system in accordance with strict standards. All product condition data can be checked in a preliminary preview website exclusively for members.
Appropriate follow-up measures to successful bids
Disputes about products purchased in the auction have rarely occurred, with the average of less than one percent of successful bids in each auction. Even if a dispute occurs, Aucnet will be responsible for negotiation between buyers and sellers until the dispute is solved. In such a case, there is no need for members to communicate directly.

“In the beginning, I feel uncomfortable for participating in the auction without inspecting products, but now I really like it! I can purchase products without hassle of leaving my work behind and going to the market. What I like most is the time when I bid for a product and try to read a seller’s intention while sitting in front of my computer. I feel it very interesting and unique.”
“It is really good! The bag that I listed was sold at a very high price! It is so convenient that the auction is held every week... It is also easy to list products that I purchased, all I have to do is to register product data in the website and send them. Market price data site is also very nice. I can see their data and photos, and refer to them when I purchase products. Their data is updated every week so that they will not deviate from the actual market movement.”
