Unlike other auction sites, KVA Network is a specialized site that is tailored to doing business in the electrical industry. It is not a consumer item auction or sales platform aimed at the general public. You may find listings for hundreds or even thousands of niche industry-related products that would be difficult to find elsewhere. Any user can browse and search the site listings freely and all are welcome to offer and respond to classified ads and we encourage users to do exactly that! As a Member, you have the opportunity to sell your electrical surplus and high voltage electrical equipment through the facilities we provide here which are tailored to your line of business and with targeted exposure to other businesses in the electrical industry for your products.
The KVA Network registration process is simple and can be done quickly! You can select the Register tab or any of the Join Now links throughout the site and complete the New User Registration form. Once the mandatory fields have been completed and you have accepted the site’s terms and conditions, you will receive an e-mail confirmation. After your e-mail address has been confirmed, you will be redirected to the site to be verified as a buyer, seller, or both with a small charge to your PayPal account which is necessary to verify valid users. You can now begin using the site.

In comparison to a classified ad, auctions offer the Seller several features which will aid in the management of your listing. An auction will also provide detailed options for payment, purchasing, and of course a robust and customizable auction mechanism.

A Reserve Price is the lowest price at which you are willing to sell your item. All bids lower than the reserve price will automatically be rejected by our system and the prospective buyer will be notified that the reserve price has not been met. The buyer will then have the opportunity to make another bid.
The Buyout Price is the listing price for the item being sold. There is no bidding process for this type of listing and the auction will end when a buyer elects to pay the buyout price.
No, you do not have to have a bid increment. You can use the proportional bidding increment system implemented on our site or you can choose to use a custom fixed bid increment value.
The duration of your listings is customizable based on the options available. You can have your listings posted for a single day or for as long as 30 days.

The shipping terms can be established when you create your listing. If the shipping method is not clearly specified, you will need to reach an agreement with the buyer for the best shipping method and determine which of you will be responsible for the shipping cost.
