If any Bidder/Buyer does not pay Songcatchers Inc. for any Item(s) within forty-eight (48) hours after the end of an Auction, Songcatchers Inc. has the right to offer the item(s) to the 2nd highest bidder for payment. If Auction does not have a 2nd highest bidder, the item may be relisted for sale online or added to another auction lot in the future. Failure to fulfill Buyer’s payment obligations will affect future bidding privileges.
