Fees and Services

Registering on www.gunpalace.com requires no membership fee’s and registration is free.  There are no fee’s associated with browsing or bidding on items.  We charge no fee’s for placing basic auction listings and allow you to re-list auction items that do not sell for free up to 3 times.

 Fee’s are only assessed for:

1. User Verification - Users who register with an email account from free email services such as Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc. may be charged a one time fee to verify the account.  These email providers generally do not verify the users identity, so to prevent the risk of fraud we must provide a basic identification verification.  (See Fee Schedule)

2. Seller Verification - In order to sell on the site a valid credit card must be associated to the account.  A one time verification fee may be charged to that credit card to facilitate an extended identity verification process.(See Fee Schedule)

3. Feedback Credit Verification - To obtain a one time Feedback Credit a fee will be charged to verify and review the secondary account you have identified from which the credit will be based.(See Fee Schedule)

4. Enhanced Listing Features offer a way to draw more attention to your specific listing and set it apart from others.(See Fee Schedule)
