Service and Transaction Success Fees
Upon the closing of a transaction, Sellers agree to pay the Company a success-based transaction fee for the marketing of their assets, integrated services and identification of qualified Buyers. The amount of this fee will vary based on the size and product type of the transaction and shall be communicated to and agreed by the Seller prior to listing the merchandise with the Company in the Schedule 1. In addition, the Company reserves the right to collect and retain a Buyer's premium from its customers in order to cover costs specific to any auction. A Seller's obligation to pay transaction fees incorporates by reference the Non-Circumvention clause contained herein.
Payment of Fees
Sellers acknowledge that despite the Company's best efforts, the may be situations where Buyers may fail to pay for an auction. The Company does not provide any representations or guarantees that Buyers will pay Sellers on their agreed price on a timely basis. The Company is under no liability to pay Seller for auctions where the Buyer fails to pay.
Users who use the Site to bid on and purchase Listed assets of any kind ("Buyer" or "Buyers") represent, warrant and agree that the act of bidding on any auction assets, is demonstrating Buyer's intention and financial capability to purchase these assets.
Upon the placing of a bid, the Buyer may not retract, amend or modify their bid without prior approval by the Company.
At the close of an auction in which Buyer has a winning bid, Buyer agrees to make immediate payment for the total amount of the transaction, including the stated Buyer's Premium, shipping costs and all duties and taxes if applicable, using payment methods provided by Company upon auction close but in no circumstance later than two (2) business days of the payment notification. If the Company does not receive payment within two (2) business days, Buyer will be considered in default of bidding contract and will be responsible for a damages fees of $250 or 30% of the final transaction price, whichever is greater. The Buyer will immediately be place in a suspended status until fees are paid.
The Buyer understands that it is the Company's policy to allow first-time buyers to have no more than one (1) outstanding transaction that require payment at one time. Once the Buyer's outstanding transactions have been paid, the Buyer is free to continue bidding until they win an additional auction. As soon as the Buyer completes their first transaction, they will be able to bid without restriction. A completed transaction is one that has been paid, received, and the merchandise has been accepted by the Buyer.
Asset Receipt and Inspection
After the close of an auction in which Buyer has the highest bid, Buyer is required to make arrangements to pay for the goods and to take delivery of shipment of the product from Seller. If a buyer refuses shipment of merchandise upon arrival at the Buyer's location, the Buyer is responsible for the associated shipping charges. Buyer must conduct an inspection of the goods within a reasonable time following receipt, normally within two (2) business days, or waive any claim for damages or non-conformity of the goods. Buyers who elect to arrange their own shipping of purchased goods waive their right to inspect the goods or to the Company's dispute resolution process regarding any alleged non-conformity of the goods. Except as otherwise stated in writing by the Company, all assets are sold "as is, where is."
When property is sold on a unit price basis, Seller reserves the right to vary the quantity delivered by a percentage explicitly disclosed in the listing. The Buyer agrees to accept any quantity within these limits.
The Buyer understands that sales Tax will be charged on all transaction.
Any Buyer that attempts to rescind a credit card transaction without the Company's express written consent (i.e., chargeback), may have their account immediately suspended and/or permanently deactivated. If a Buyer performs a chargeback after receiving the property, Company may file charges with the appropriate law enforcement agency, and reserves the right to pursue all remedies available to us to recover our damages. If a Buyer feels that their merchandise was misrepresented or that the Buyer is owed a refund, they must follow the dispute resolution process.
Upon the close of a sale, the Company's payment collection team will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact buyers in order to ensure timely payment. Payment is collected for all costs associated with the transaction including: Buyer's Premium and applicable shipping expenses. Preferred methods of payment include wire transfers and PayPal. PayPal shall be accepted up to the limit of US $5,000 per transaction. All payments should be made via approved payment methods.
Users agree not to negotiate, communicate, or transmit any information of any kind with any other Registered User (whether or not the User has placed a bid) in an attempt to complete the sale of assets and specified quantities listed in an auction through a means outside of the Company's online auction process (a "Circumventing Transaction"). This non-circumvention clause shall apply to Users and their principles, agents and representatives, including but not limited to employees, consultants, bankers, attorneys, accountants, assignees, heirs and transferees.
Buyers who feel that their auction was misrepresented (in terms of quality, quantity, or both) must submit an online dispute form to www.theselectsource.com. The form can be found by visiting www.theselectsource.com. Buyers are required to submit support to validate their claims (including manifests and photos) and failure to do so may result in a denied claim. Buyers must have a dispute on file in order for the Customer Support department to conduct any actions on their behalf. To help eliminate the need for disputes, buyers should accurately check the manifest, condition, shipping terms, and images of product they wish to purchase. Buyers who arrange their own shipping agree to waive their right to dispute the merchandise, and assume responsibility at the point of pick-up. Merchandise should be inspected prior to exiting the facility.
Refund / Return Policy
Refunds or returns of merchandise must be approved by the Company's Customer Support team, and must be preceded by an honored dispute. Any attempt to rescind a payment or return property prior to an authorization by the Company will result in a delay of claim resolution, and may adversely impact the Buyer's ability to transact on our website. When a return is authorized, the Company does a full inspection of all merchandise upon return and units must be the same as when shipped out to the customer - including serial number, included accessories, etc. to be eligible for a full refund. Title to property remains with the Buyer until the returned property is accepted by the Company or by the Seller.
