By listing an item for sale on the Site, you authorize CoinStampsClassifieds to Seller fees charged when the seller acknowledges an order (by entering a shipping date) are final and non-refundable.

4. CoinStampsClassifieds’s ROLE
CoinStampsClassifieds provides a venue where third-party sellers can advertise items for sale to third party buyers. CoinStampsClassifieds allows the buyer to initiate a sale transaction with a seller, collection of payment, shipping of merchandise, and any further negotiations related to the sale are the responsibility of the respective buyers and sellers.

CoinStampsClassifieds has no financial interest in the sale, other than the seller fee which is collected based on the sale amount. As a Seller, you may list any item on the Site unless it is a prohibited item as defined in the policies and guidelines contained in the Frequently Asked Questions section. Only items which you are legally entitled to sell may be listed on CoinStampsClassifieds. This would generally be defined as items that you own, or items which you may legally offer as a representative for another party. Under no circumstances may you offer for sale items which are stolen, illegally obtained, counterfeit or fraudulant. It is up to the seller to accurately describe the item for sale.

If the buyer is unhappy with items received from the seller, or if items are never received, it is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to resolve any resulting dispute. CoinStampsClassifieds offers a method for buyers to provide feedback about problems and disputes, but is not directly involved in this process.

If it is determined between the buyer and seller that a refund or partial refund is due the buyer, the arrangements for the transfer of funds must be made between the buyer and seller. CoinStampsClassifieds does provide a mechanism for making refunds once a sale has been acknowledged, however any refund must be agreed upon between the buyer and seller, and initiated by the seller.

CoinStampsClassifieds reserves the right to deny seller status to any person or company that fails to honor this agreement, or that we can reasonably assume will not conduct transactions in an honest and respectable way. This would include existing registered sellers for whom we have received user complaints, and prospective sellers who we have reason to believe will use the CoinStampsClassifieds service improperly.

Each registered seller must maintain a valid E-mail address to be used for notification of sales, disputes, or other communications. If the seller’s E-mail address changes, it is his responsibility to update his CoinStampsClassifieds User Registration information accordingly. Sellers should check their E-mail frequently (at least once every 2 or 3 days) to facilitate the timely delivery of sale and dispute notifications.

If you have a sale pending, and you have not responded to your notification E-mail, we may try to contact you by phone if you have provided a phone number. Phone notification is not guaranteed, but may be done at our option if the sale amount warrants.

No notifications will be sent regarding changes to this Seller Agreement, or other policies and procedures. It is up to each individual seller to check the Frequently Asked Questions section on the CoinStampsClassifieds site to stay abreast of the latest changes.

The seller is responsible for collecting payment for any won item. CoinStampsClassifieds has provided a system to request a paypal payment from a buyer, but it is the sole responsibility of the seller to collect payment via this method or any other.

When a seller lists items for sale, he is obligated to sell the goods at the listed price. Upon receipt of payment from CoinStampsClassifieds, the seller must ship the items in a timely manner, using appropriate packaging materials. IMPORTANT: Items you list for sale at CoinStampsClassifieds should not be available for sale elsewhere. This includes eBay auctions, other websites, or a retail store.

All items should include a fair and accurate description as to their condition and grade. Item descriptions must abide by the CoinStampsClassifieds Content Policy. Any defects should be noted, unless an image of the item is provided which obviously shows the defect. Grading of philatelic and numismatic items is a subjective art, so the seller should be prepared to offer a refund or settle any dispute that arises if the buyer’s appraisal of the item is not the same as the seller’s.

After the sale is complete, the seller agrees to the further responsibility of monitoring his E-mail in a timely manner to check for any notifications which may be sent in the event of the buyer registering a complaint.

The seller agrees that it is the Seller’s and the Buyer’s responsibility to determine whether sales apply to the transactions and to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. CoinStampsClassifieds is not obligated to determine if any taxes are due, and is not responsible to collect, report, or remit any sales or use taxes arising from any transaction. Accordingly, CoinStampsClassifieds does not add sales or use tax to any transaction initiated on our site.

CoinStampsClassifieds is primarily a venue for private individuals to buy and sell stamps. In such cases, the seller would not normally be authorized to collect sales or tax.

In cases where a CoinStampsClassifieds seller is a business that is obligated to collect sales tax, the seller agrees that he will responsibly report such sales to his local tax authority, and remit the proper taxes due as a cost of doing business.

Information you provide to CoinStampsClassifieds as a part of the registration process will only be used for purposes necessary for the listing, sale, and transfer of funds on CoinStampsClassifieds. We will not sell, or otherwise make available, any information you provide to any third party for advertising or other purposes (except as noted in the section ILLEGAL ACTIVITY).

Your user ID, and the information provided for sale listings, is readily viewable by any visitor to the CoinStampsClassifieds site. Your E-mail address is only made available to buyers and sellers for contact purposes during or after a sale transaction.

It is your responsibility to protect your password from unauthorized use, and to change it if you feel its privacy has been compromised.

The CoinStampsClassifieds site and services may be used only for lawful purposes and in a lawful manner. You agree to comply with all applicable laws, statutes, and regulations. You may not register under a false name or impersonate any participant or use another participant’s password(s). Such fraudulent conduct is a violation of federal and state laws.

Fraudulent conduct may be reported to law enforcement. CoinStampsClassifieds has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any activity and content associated with this site, and may investigate any reported violation of its policies or complaints and take any action that it deems appropriate. This includes the right to report any activity that we suspect violates any law or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties.

The CoinStampsClassifieds site and services are arranged, sponsored, or managed by CoinStampsClassifieds in the Province of Ontario, Canada. The laws of the Province and Government of Canada govern this agreement and all of its terms and conditions.

CoinStampsClassifieds reserves the right to deny seller status to any person or company that fails to honor this agreement, or that we can reasonably assume will not conduct transactions in an honest and respectable way. This would include existing registered sellers for whom we have received user complaints, and prospective sellers who we have reason to believe will use the CoinStampsClassifieds service improperly.

If CoinStampsClassifieds terminates the seller registration of a seller, any and all funds due to the seller will immediately be transferred to the seller’s PayPal account, if possible. If there is a problem contacting the seller, or if the seller’s PayPal account is not valid, the rules defined under ‘TRANSFER OF FUNDS” will apply. Any items a seller has listed on CoinStampsClassifieds when his seller status is terminated will be immediately deleted from the listings.

The seller may terminate his seller status at any time, and without notice, by simply unchecking the ‘Register as Seller’ checkbox on the User Registration Information page. All items listed for sale by the seller will immediately be removed from our listings. Any sales which have previously been initiated, and are not yet complete, will be completed by CoinStampsClassifieds, and must be honored by the seller.
