You don't like the increase call Dan himself! Call Dan morphy and complain. Nothing is going to happen complaining on this website!

I wonder if they are still going to post the disclosure to be able to see any maximum pre-bids left and/or also permit bids to be placed by the auctioneer, an employee of the auctioneer, or the seller or an agent on the seller's behalf. If so, then add that along with the 8% increase in buyers fee and you really are going to see a difference.

So when they sell a high end sign such as the Beacon Oil sign that went for I believe $50,000 and they are charging a 20% seller's fee and a 20% buyer's fee they would make $20,000? One one sign? Wow.

$5,000 less profit...feel better laugh
Sellers Premium @10% = $5,000
Buyers Premium @20% = $10,000

Not really is right! You've also got the second place bidder that quit 10% early because of the additional funds he would have to spend!

Just might have to sell on ebay & only accept Credit Cards, NO PayPal.
OR Sell on OG W/O the fees & ask 3X what anything is worth [to keep my customers HAPPY!].

I know Dan from purchasing and selling at HIS auctions, and there is no reason for any complaint from me. The high auction premiums have as I have said for years now slowed my purchase power down, but that is my decision. I have personally witness auctions with low premiums and no internet and they did very very well. As spoken here by many, either you re-adjust or just look to other venues.
But do not go after the guy who has treated us well for many years and happily picked up the phone to answer questions and offer help.

My two cents...
Dan is Good!
Capitalism Good!
Any auction fee increases above current levels...BAD!
Complaining relevant to or hobby. excepted and a pertinent topic.
OG topic with more the 2 pages ...
Good for everyone here who loves the hobby. That's why we are all on here on a Saturday night and not doing other less healthy or productive things. Cheers and see you all out there. Get to an event and Bring cash. No shipping or extra fees!

Ive personally known Dan Matthews for almost 15 years now.
I have watched several of you guys SLAM him every chance possible over the years and this is NO different!
The man took a job proposal or whatever to better HIS life!
If Morphy charges more then TAKE IT UP WITH HIM! I bet morphy would be glad to discuss this...He too is a great guy!
Ive been to auctions ALL OVER and seen premiums from 0-22% usually PLUS tax!
I SIMPLY adjust my bids accordingly! Just like ebay, I take the shipping charges into consideration when I bid!
Dan Matthews has bent over backwards for me on several occasions.
Sold items on short notice, held items until next show for FREE to avoid shipping fees,
let me pay the next day when I arrived at show, picked up items from other collectors to deliver to me, etc...etc...
Nobody likes change BUT IT MUST HAPPEN to progress in life smile
Funny how the same guys crying will be front and center at the auction kissing his butt or sitting home waiting for his call when their item sells....LOL
Here is dan morphy's auction info! If your truly sincere with voicing your concerns on his premiums, then take it up with him!
