We have been a major auction house of solely movie posters since 1990 (when we hosted yearly million dollar movie poster auctions), but there is a HUGE difference between our online auctions and those of other major auction houses who have opened websites. THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT OUR ONLINE AUCTIONS HAVE NO BUYERS PREMIUM WHATSOEVER! Most other auctions add a 20% or 25% added charge to everything you buy (some even have an insane $19 minimum, even on a $1 purchase, so they NEVER auction anything for under $20!), and this massive added charge turns many good buys into terrible ones. Some auctions may also charge hidden fees such as "photography fees" or "handling fees", or fees to process your credit card. But in our auctions, what you bid is what you pay plus the actual cost (or less) of getting your purchases to you!

Some people might say, "But Bruce, we remember that you did have buyers premiums when you organized auctions for Christie's from 1990 to 1997 (and for Howard Lowery from 1998 to 2000)" and that is correct (and also 17 to 27 year old info!). But in 1990 the buyers premium was 10% (half or less of what it is now) and at that time I had no "clout" to get rid of them, because Christie's would not do an auction without them. But I hated them then just as much as I do now, because they are solely there to deceive both consignors and bidders into thinking the auction houses do not take nearly as much commission as they do.

But I swore that the day I could run my own auctions the very first thing I would do is leave those absurd buyers premiums behind, and as soon as I moved my business to eBay in 2000 (and again to my own site in 2008) that is exactly what I did, and I have never charged a buyers premium ever since (and never will). So is not only a "Fake Free Zone" (thanks to our unique "Lifetime Guarantee" on what we auction) but it is also a "Buyers Premium Free Zone"!
