Limitation of Liability

You will not hold StratfordSeller.com responsible for other users' content, actions or inactions, items they list or their destruction of allegedly fake items. You acknowledge that we are not a traditional auctioneer. Instead, our site is a venue to allow anyone to offer, sell, and buy their original goods at anytime, from anywhere, in a variety of pricing formats and locations, such as fixed price formats and auction-style formats. We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through various programs, we have no control over and do not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of items advertised, the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings, the ability of sellers to sell items, the ability of buyers to pay for items, or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.

We do not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer. Trading Standards apply to the transfer of ownership between the buyer and the seller, unless the buyer and the seller agree otherwise.

Further, we cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our sites, services or tools, and operation of our sites, services or tools may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control.

We are not liable for any loss of money, goodwill or reputation, or any special, indirect or consequential damages arising, directly or indirectly, out of your use of or your inability to use our sites, services and tools.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Regardless of the previous paragraphs, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or to any third party is limited to the full cost of the item (including any applicable sales tax) and its original shipping costs.

 

Fees and Services

Joining StatfordSeller.com, listing items (unless you choose to pay for optional extras) and bidding on listed items is free.

Example: If an item sells for £125.00 the seller fee is caculated: (£25 x 5%) + (£75 x 3.5%) + (£25 x 2.5%) = (£1.25) + (£2.62) + (£0.62) = £4.49.

Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in British Pounds. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with our sites and services in a timely manner with a valid payment method.
