How it works


StockIT connects buyers and sellers in the timber industry. Buyers can easily put a bid on specific stock lists from sawmills. All stock lists in one place, easy as that!

Bid and follow auctions online through Desktop, Mobile or tablets.

Sell stock lists through a bidding procedure. Target specific countries.


1. Auctions every week

Each week several new specifications will be presented at www.stockit.se

During the whole time buyers can visit the site to read detailed descriptions of the stock lists and view pictures of them. We will also send information to bidders concerning the latest stock lists and market information.


2. Free registration

To place a bid you must first register as a new member, which is free of charge and only takes a couple of seconds. Simply send us an email on hello@stockit.se and we will send you the details. We will then confirm your membership by sending you an email with official confirmation. Please also add relevant information about your company such as contact details etc. This is also highly appreciated by all the mills and a way for mills and customers to move their business closer to each other.


3. Place your bids

As a registered member you simply sign in and place bids for the stock lists on sale. To place a bid, put the price you are willing to pay and then click on the Bid-tab. Buying and placing bids via Stockit is free of charge.


Countdown

On the top of the page you find the auctions countdown. 10 min before auction is concluded, all new bids will add another 10 min to the countdown and therefore the auctions renews itself with another 10 minutes. If there are no more bids after the added 10 minutes, you are the winner! We advise you to click on .Update. in your browser if you'd like to see the highest bid right away and not risk losing the auction. Pleases bear in mind that there is a natural delay/lag on the Internet of minimum 4-5 seconds so we advise you not to place your bid in the very last seconds.


Minimum price level reached?

All stock lists/auctions have a reserve price (minimum price). The seller put this price level when up-loading the specification for auction. If the reserve price is not reached, then the seller has the right not to sell the object. But, the seller has up to max 6 hours to decide upon accepting the bidders price anyway, even if it has not reached the mills minimum accepted price level.

Please note that as the winning bidder you are always bound by your bid, even if the Minimum price level is not reached. (max 6 hours after concluded auction)


Minimum Bid Raise

The sawmill also put a lowest possible bid increase for each auction. It is always set in actual currency/m3. The minimum bid varies from auction to auction depending on size/value and is displayed on each auction. Practically this only means that the bidder might have to increase every bid with at least 20-50 cent / m3 or similar for each bid.


Auto bid function, how does it work? If there is an auction that you are interested in but you have no chance to follow it live simply place your highest acceptable price directly. The system will then do the bidding for you based on the minimum bid raise above until it reaches a win for you or your maximum accepted auto-bid. If your maximal auto-bid is reached you will have to continue to raise manually or put in another maximal auto-bid. They system will send you notifications on email to keep you updated.


4. You have the winning bid. What then?

If you have made the winning bid when the auction concludes you will receive a confirmation by e-mail. The seller will send the contract to you, sign that directly and send it back to the mill. The seller will then proceed with the delivery. Please contact seller as soon as possible to arrange and stay available for questions from the mill or the forwarder/shipper. Both seller and buyer have a responsibility to cooperate and make the transaction of both goods and payments as smooth and cost-efficient as possible.


5 Exports of the stock lists

The producer sell their stock list direct to the winning bidder or via a trading house. Large producers normally take care of their own exports, small producers normally use a trading house to act as seller who take care of exports, logistics, dox etc. Products are normally offered CIF or CFR etc i.e the freight and costs are included in the offers.

! Please read the terms carefully before bidding. Terms are stated in this text and above and below each specification in the auction for each auction.


6. Abuse
