Dear Customer,
We realize customers were regularly confused by the wording on our website (retail vs. compare price v. manufacturer’s price tag) so we have made a change to eliminate this problem.
On our item listings, you will no longer see a “retail” price. Now, we list our Buyz price from our Buyz.com retail store where customers can purchase items at a fixed price without bidding. The reason we list our Buyz price next to the bid amount is to demonstrate the drastic difference between being able to set your own price with a bid and paying a fixed price outright.

We can assure our customers that any compare pricing listed on our items is included to show the appeal of participating in an auction and choosing what you pay for an item. Retailers like Macy’s, Walmart and Target will also post an “original price” or “regular price” on sale items, too. It’s a tactic retailers use when they want to show that you are saving money.

If you or any one reading this is concerned about our pricing, standards or a problem with a current order, we hope you will contact us directly at improvements@bidz.com. All emails will be reviewed seriously and thoroughly.

Hi,
We haven't used Bidz for a while, as my sister purchased some rings that never arrived, and they would not refund her money. Pretty disappointing, as we were loyal customers.
We get all of our stuff appraised. It was a bit hit and miss, but we got the jewellery for a really good price, so the valuations always came out higher. Mum purchased a ring, and a couple of the little diamonds around the amethyst were actually not real diamands, like they were advertised. They were cubic zirc's. I think the key is to pay way less than their RRP (or whatever they call it, these days).
It used to be heaps cheaper than what it is now.
Kathy
