Last Minute

Be careful not to wait for the last minute/second to make a bid. To view an auction in real time you must continuously refresh the auction page in order to keep up with the auction clock. When bidding in the last minutes/seconds of an auction the clock is running as you refresh the page, and your bid may not be accepted and processed before the auction actually closes. We are not responsible for potential bids that do not connect with the system in time.


Payments and Fees

  • When you place a bid online at NS Give you are entering into a legally binding contract to purchase what you bid on.
  • Bids cannot be withdrawn or canceled.
  • If you are the highest bid at 9 PM on February 21 the NS Give Auction System will automatically declare you the winning bid.
  • If you are the winning bidder, you will be notified between that evening and requested to finalize your transaction electronically. You will be given 24 hours to do so and may at that time decide whether you wish to pay via PayPal, the credit card you placed on file, or via ACH.
  • ACH payment via the bank will have no transaction costs. If you pay by credit card or through PayPal, a 3% credit card transaction fee will be added to the winning bid amount.
  • If you do not select your payment method within 24 hours, we will charge the credit card you placed on file when registering.
  • You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes as well as for any and all hardware, software, internet service, and other costs you may incur to bid, buy, procure a listing from us, or access our servers. Note that charities on Kauai are subject to the general excise tax (GET) of 4.5%.


Tax Deduction

  • The North Shore Give (via the Kauai North Shore Community Foundation) is a registered 501(3)c charitable organization.
  • NS Give will provide all buyers with details of the items they won and confirm the amount paid for each item.
  • Fair Market Value is not determined by NS Give but by each party. Buyers and donors should consult their own tax advisors to determine the appropriate tax deduction they should claim.
