Future Auctions/Sales On Basics

Recommended Posts

Hi, in September 2020, Admin decided to allow sales on Pigeon Basics FREE of charge.

However ALL Sales on Basics MUST be authorised by a member of the Administration Team prior to any sales appearing on the Basics platform. It is simply courtesy to seek prior authorisation by a member of the Administration Team. 


However any Donations towards the running costs of Pigeon Basics would be very much appreciated. 



We feel as an Admin Team that it is time to review how such sales are held, in particular Auction Sales, where BIDS are required.


Also taking into account Basics members comments and opinions regarding Auction Sales on Basics, we have introduced the following Rule; for  Auction Sales  being held on the Basics Platform;


Sales by auction on Pigeon Basics the following rule;


All sales by Auction on Pigeon Basics, whether it be run by an individual member, a club/federation or other organisation representative. That all such sales by auction abide by the following rule;

All sales by auction must be authorised by a member of Pigeon Basics Administration Team prior to any sales being posted up on Pigeon Basics

Sales by Auction on Pigeon Basics must end on Pigeon Basics, Sales by Auction operating under various methods of bidding, such as Online bids, phone bids, and any other form of bidding, must end the sale by auction by only accepting bids on line on the Pigeon Basics Platform for the final 30 minutes of the sale by auction. ( plus any 5 minute rule)

This rule must be made clear at the beginning of any sales by auction on Pigeon Basics, and must be adhered to by all sales by auction organisers.


The integrity of Pigeon Basics must be foremost at all times and all such sales by auction, must be as transparent as possible.


Once permission has been granted sales by auction can be posted on the relevant Site Board, Dates must be notified in advance, individual/s running the Auction must take full responsibility for the running and conduct of the Auction.

This will include the dealing with money and the buyers/bidders etc

Any disputes must be resolved by the person/persons running the sale.

No Auction must last longer than 10 days.

Only one sale will be permitted to run at any given time on the Basics Platform. 


Pigeon Basics will not take responsibility for such Auction Sales, but Admin and Moderators will have the Authority to intervene if it is deemed necessary.

These rules will start as from 1st May 2021 but will be continuously under review by the Admin team.

Thank You
