The Service includes a forum where users may post and browse listings for goods, including second-hand goods (“Products”). Such listings and Products are provided by users, and not by us. WE DO NOT SELL OR OTHERWISE MAKE AVAILABLE ANY PRODUCTS, WE DO NOT BUY OR OTHERWISE ACQUIRE ANY PRODUCTS, AND WE DO NOT FACILITATE THE SALE, PURCHASE OR TRANSFER OF ANY PRODUCTS.

TRANSACTIONS AND TRANSFERS ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK. PLEASE USE CAUTION AND COMMON SENSE WHEN BUYING, SELLING OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRING ANY PRODUCT, OR MAKING OR RECEIVING PAYMENT FOR ANY PRODUCT.
Neither the availability through the Service of any such listing, nor any promotional services that we may make available to the user who posted such listing, implies our endorsement of the listed Product or the provider of such Product, or any affiliation with such provider. We make no representations as to any Products or listings, or any providers of Products. Such information and the availability of any Product are subject to change at any time without notice. You must ascertain and obey all applicable laws regarding the marketing, promotion, sale, purchase, delivery, receipt, possession and use of any Product. We reserve the right to remove any Product listing for any reason.
You must ensure that you have the necessary authority and permissions to post any Product listing, and to enter into any transaction or make any transfer relating to a Product, including, if you are not of legal age to do so, by obtaining proper parental or guardian consent.
Service visitors may make available certain materials (each, a “Submission”) through or in connection with the Service, including listings for Products, and on profile pages or on the Service’s interactive services, such as message boards and other forums, and chatting, commenting and other messaging functionality. Company has no control over and is not responsible for any use or misuse (including any distribution) by any third party of Submissions. IF YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE ANY OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE OR OTHER INFORMATION PUBLICLY AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
We will charge a seller fee for all transactions unless a promotion expressly waives part of all of the fees. The fee will include credit card transaction fees. The fee will be deducted from the total price of the sale of the Product. The price of the Product may be reduced at the seller’s discretion. Once the buyer receives the Product, Markid will hold the buyer’s payment for two days after the delivery, and remit to the seller the fee, less (i) donations (if any) and (ii) Markid;s fee / commission
Markid will use a third-party delivery company to pick up Products pursuant to a transaction from seller and deliver to them the buyer. Prior to pick up and delivery, both seller and buyer will be given a 4-hour window for the third-party delivery company to pick up or deliver Products sold. If the Product is not ready for pick up, or if the buyer is not available for delivery, an additional fee of $20 will be applied to the unavailable party.
We are not responsible for any exchange of Products through meetups. For Products that are delivered by us, the buyer has 2 days to make a claim based on Products that do not match the description and or condition. If this happens, the seller will be responsible for taking the Product back. we will reverse the payment to the buyer. The seller will be responsible for paying the delivery fee to us.
The return process will be coordinated via the messaging feature in the App. For returns other than the instance referenced in the above paragraph, it is at the discretion of the seller, or in some cases Markid, to accept returns. No returns of any kind will be accepted after the 2 days have lapsed.
We will make every effort to resolve disputes between the buyer and the seller. To avoid disputes in meetups, we encourage the seller to take a snapshot of the signature of the buyer, and send it to us along with the name, address and phone number of the buyer. This information will expedite the payment process and reduce the risk of disputes. In the absence of this, we will be required to refund the money to the buyer for any qualifying dispute.
While Markid is a for profit organization, we will act as an intermediary to pass along any donation chosen by the seller via the Service. Donations can only be made to a registered 501(3)(c) organization. We will not be responsible for providing information related to tax deductible donations, nor will we collect any charitable donation receipts or other documentation related to tax deductible donations.
