How our auctions close and our Anti Sniping Policy

The ability to “snipe” will not be allowed in our auction. Each lot lists a closing time. If a bid is received within the last ten minutes before the scheduled closing of the lot, then bidding will be extended on that specific lot for an additional ten minutes. This means there is no reason to wait until the end of the sale to enter your bids. A late bid on an item only extends the closing of that particular lot, NOT the entire auction.


All sales are strictly for cash in U.S. dollars. Invoices must be paid in full before shipment. Invoices are due within 7 days of receipt. Personal checks, cashiers checks, money orders, wire transfers, PayPal and Visa/Mastercard are accepted. Personal checks must clear. If payment is not received with 7 days, Psychedelic Art Exchange reserves the right to sell the lots to the underbidder and you will be banned from all future Psychedelic Art Exchange sales.

Shipping and Insurance

Psychedelic Art Exchange does not profit from postage and insurance fees. However, we set the industry standard for secure, archival shipping and our clients overwhelmingly agree that this level of quality and assurance is well worth the small additional costs we incur. Shipments inside the United States are shipped fully insured and will be billed separately for our cost for materials and postage. All items are shipped in custom containers and all items are shipped flat. In addition, each item is also housed in it’s own archival, Mylar D holder suitable for long term storage. Foreign orders will also be invoiced separately for the actual shipping and insurance fees.
