Winning the auction

If you are the highest bidder when the auction ends, you and the seller will receive an automatic e-mail. You must contact the seller within three business days. You are under contract to pay him or her the amount of your bid and any other expenses (if any that were mentioned in the item listing page). The seller is also under contract to send you the item upon payment receipt. Nigerian Market advices that Payment on Delivery system is involved between a distance bidder, buyer and seller.
