Buyer's Fee

Buyer's Fee

In an auction, a fee paid by the purchaser to the person or organization holding the auction on top of the top bid. For example, if one bids $1,000 for an antique bed, one may have to pay a 10% buyer's fee (or $100) if one wins the auction. A buyer's fee is one way an auctioneer makes money from the auction.
