1% of Vehicle Sale Price

If a vehicle is "Won" and subsequently marked "Lost", the seller will pay a penalty fee to Otolane in the amount of $250. If a vehicle is not made available for pick-up by the buyer on the "Arriving By" date, Otolane reserves the right to assess a penalty fee of $250 or cancel the sale at its discretion. Unless approved by Otolane in its sole discretion, a listing may not have an "Arriving By" date of more than 30 days past the transaction date.

In order to purchase or sell a vehicle via the System, you must have completed the electronic funds transfer ("EFT") authorization form. If a vehicle is purchased (“Won”) via the System, you must select EFT or Next Gear Capital as a payment method. If you do not select a payment method by 2 PM (Eastern time) the following business day, the System will automatically process payment for the vehicle purchase and any related fees via EFT. If your purchased vehicle is not paid in full or picked-up from the seller within five (5) business days after being marked as “Arrived”, Otolane reserves the right to revoke your arbitration rights for the purchased vehicle and may impose monetary penalties (e.g., storage charges) up to $500 in Otolane's sole discretion.

In consideration of access to the System, you agree to pay Otolane all fees and charges assessed by Otolane. You agree that Otolane may deduct all fees and charges from any amounts that may be payable to you, including vehicle sale proceeds. Any invoice issued by Otolane is to be paid by pre-authorized credit card. All invoices are due upon receipt. After 30 days, you shall pay interest on all overdue amounts from the due date until such amounts are paid at a rate equal to 1.5% per month or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less.

All amounts set out in these terms and conditions are exclusive of taxes. You will pay or reimburse Otolane for all taxes, duties and levies, however designated or computed, that are based upon these terms and conditions or the provision or use of the System, including without limitation sales, use and value-added taxes, and other assessments now or hereafter imposed in connection with or resulting from these terms and conditions, excepting only taxes based on Otolane's net income.

Otolane may give you written notice of any change in the fees payable for the use of the System at any time. Any such change shall come into effect on the date specified in the notice.

Otolane will not be held responsible for any payment delays as a result of payment failures, bank holidays or any other reason beyond Otolane's control.

Otolane is not responsible for transferring vehicle ownership. Please mail all vehicle ownership documents to 8250 Lawson Road, Unit 103, Milton, Ontario L9T 5C6, Attention: Otolane.

Otolane shall charge a fee of up to $100 for any failed attempts to withdraw or deposit funds, including, without limitation, any payments that are returned for insufficient funds (NSF).
