Selling Your Alpaca in the
Selling your alpaca on
the Alpaca.com® Online Auction is an easy and exciting
way to find qualified buyers for your superior alpacas.
All animals consigned to the Auction must meet the highest
standards of quality set by both Seller and Alpaca.com®.
The alpaca must be physically sound and conformationally
correct, with excellent bite and straight legs. The fiber
should be outstanding in both texture and coverage. The
Auction is a showcase of some of the world's finest alpacas
and any animal accepted for consignment must carry on
that tradition of excellence.
In addition, Sellers are
expected to warranty their alpacas to meet industry standards
and work cooperatively with the Buyer following the sale
on such issues as registration, shipment, medical records,
etc. This is simply another way that Alpaca.com®
endeavors to insure the satisfaction of both parties and
our own continued goodwill in the greater alpaca community.
All alpacas listed in
the Auction have been consigned to Alpaca.com® by
the Seller, who has agreed to pay Alpaca.com® a commission
for managing the sale and has signed the necessary agreements
to support that arrangment.
In order for an alpaca
to be accepted into the Auction, the Seller and Alpaca.com®
must agree on the above conditions. If it is determined
that the proposed alpaca does not fit within the context
of the Auction, the Alpaca.com® consultant will discuss
other sales vehicles available to the Seller.
