SELLERS LISTING AND SELLING
Listing Description: By listing an item on the Site you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with WAY’s published policies. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale in your listing. Your listings may only include text descriptions, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with appropriate tags. You must not list an item more than once unless the item’s listing has naturally expired. If the "in stock" quantity is more than one, all items in that listing must be identical with the only exception being minor variations arising from items being hand-finished which must be included on the listing. Binding Sale: All sales are binding. The seller is responsible for shipping up to the point of delivery or otherwise completing the transaction with the buyer within 20 days unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as (a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of the seller's listing (such as payment method), or (b) the seller cannot authenticate the buyer's identity. The buyer is obligated to deliver appropriate payment for items purchased unless there is an exceptional circumstance. Fee Avoidance: The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers are responsible to charge shipping and handling fees to cover the costs for packaging and posting in the listing fee. You may not alter the item's price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding WAY’s Marketplace transaction fees, misrepresenting the item's location, or using another user's account without permission. Trade Information Upon completion of a sale: Sellers will have access to the Buyer's full physical address. As a Seller, you are strictly prohibited from using this personally identifiable information for any purpose other than completing the sale.
PROHIBITED, QUESTIONABLE AND INFRINGING ITEMS AND ACTIVITIES
You are solely responsible for your conduct and activities on and regarding WAY’s marketplace and any and all data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links (together, "Content") that you submit, post, and display on WAY’s Copyright Policy.
INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER USERS AND PRIVATE MESSAGING
Users are solely responsible for interactions with others. Users understand that WAY Marketplace does not in any way screen its users. All users agree to exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with others, particularly if meeting offline or in person. Messaging is your way to communicate privately with other WAY Marketplace members. It’s essentially email, but purely for WAY Marketplace members. Messages are primarily intended for communicating about transactions and orders that are underway. You must not use Messages to send unsolicited advertising or promotions, request samples, loans, donations or "spam”. You must not pass on email addresses or any other information to third parties. Spamming other boutiques in order to ask them to ‘follow’ your own boutiques will not be tolerated. Please use common sense when giving out personal information to others via messaging, for example, don’t send someone your credit card details. You must not use messages to knowingly harass, threaten, blackmail or abuse another member. If someone explicitly tells you not to contact them, you must not use Messages to contact them again, unless you are involved in an open transaction. You must not use Messages to interfere with a transaction. This means…You must not contact another member to buy or sell an item listed on WAY Marketplace outside of the WAY Marketplace site. This may also constitute fee avoidance. You must not communicate with a member involved in an active or completed transaction to warn the member away from a particular buyer, seller or item. As an anti-spam measure, sending too many messages too quickly may auto-disable your account. Contact WAY Team who will review account activity and enable your account if spam-free.
