Procedure for Sales TransactionsAs a condition to your use of the Services, you agree to abide by the following procedures and guidelines when engaging in the sale or purchase of any Item. We may change these procedures and guidelines in the future, and such changes will be effective immediately upon posting without notice to you. It is important to note that AptDeco’s involvement is limited to that of a platform provider facilitating the transactions between a Seller and Buyer, and as such, AptDeco is not, and shall not be deemed to be, the agent of either party for any purpose. The following describes and explains the procedure to be followed in connection with a typical purchase completed via the Service:
- Seller lists an Item for sale by submitting a Posting to the Service. The Posting should be accurate, complete, and convey in all material respects the nature, quality, and price of the Item, along with any other information reasonably required in order for a Buyer to make an informed purchasing decision with respect to such Item. AptDeco reserves the right to review any Posting and to accept or reject it in its sole discretion. Prior to rejecting a Posting, AptDeco may, but need not, provide the Seller with an opportunity to correct or edit the Posting. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any of the foregoing, Seller shall remain solely responsible for the Posting and its contents and for any liability arising therefrom.
- Buyer purchases the Item and specifies whether the Item will be picked up by Buyer or whether Buyer prefers to purchase the delivery services of an AptDeco Delivery Partner. To complete the purchase, Buyer accepts and authorizes AptDeco to charge Buyer’s payment method on file for the full amount of any associated Proceeds and Fees. If Buyer is picking up, Buyer identifies pick-up date/time windows which are convenient to Buyer (the “Windows,” and each, a “Window”).
- AptDeco emails Seller with Buyer’s intentions.
- Seller responds to AptDeco within 24 hours to select among the Windows selected by Buyer, or responds to AptDeco to confirm availability for pick up by a Delivery Partner, as applicable, depending on Buyer’s chosen delivery method. If Seller does not respond within 24 hours, the order is subject to cancellation by AptDeco. Should Seller find that none of the Windows selected by Buyer are convenient, Seller may propose an Window, which Buyer shall thereafter either accept, or reject and propose a new Window, and so on, until Buyer and Seller identify a mutually acceptable Window.
- AptDeco notifies Buyer to confirm the final scheduled Window for the purchased Item. For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer is primarily responsible for pick-up and/or delivery and is solely responsible for covering any related costs, and Seller’s sole responsibility in connection with delivery is to be available and present at the scheduled time and place to release the Item to Buyer or the Delivery Partner, as applicable. In the event Seller is not available during the agreed-upon Window, Seller shall be responsible for paying the Delivery Partner Fee paid by Buyer, and the order shall be subject to cancellation by AptDeco.
- Buyer receives Item. Buyer confirms the Item is delivered on the AptDeco website. If Buyer reports no problems with the Item or if Buyer does not confirm delivery after two (2) business days (the “Review Period”), , the transaction becomes final, AptDeco transfers the relevant Proceeds to the Seller’s account, and AptDeco retains any relevant Fees paid by Buyer.
