13. Selling

As a registered member, you may list item/s for sale on the Website. You must be legally able to sell the item(s) you list for sale on our Website. You must ensure that the listed items do not infringe upon the intellectual property, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy rights of third parties. Listings may only include text descriptions, graphics and pictures that describe your item for sale. All listed items must be listed in an appropriate category on the Website. All listed items must be kept in stock for successful fulfillment of sales.

The listing description of the item must not be misleading and must describe actual condition of the product. If the item description does not match the actual condition of the item, you agree to refund any amounts that you may have received from the buyer. You agree not to list a single product in multiple quantities across various categories on the site. Philamart reserves the right to delete such multiple listings of the same product listed by you in various categories.

Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be ended, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account. If a listing is in the wrong category, we may move it to a more appropriate one (the listing fee may be different) or the listing may be ended.

If you receive at least one bid at or above your stated minimum price, you are legally obligated to complete the transaction sale contract with the Winning buyer upon the item's sale online. You must contact the Winning buyer within 72 hours of item selling successfully and supply the item as per the shipping and delivery details mentioned in item description to the Winning buyer in a merchantable condition upon receiving the payment from the Winning buyer and in case of buyer making payments using DirecPay Facility, upon receiving of payment intimation from Philamart, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as:

1. The Winning buyer fails to meet the terms of your listing (such as payment method), or

2. You cannot authenticate the Winning Buyer's identity provided you have not received any payment from the Winning Buyer. Without limiting any other remedies, Philamart may suspend or terminate your account if you are found to have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the use of the Website. As sellers on the Website we encourage you to post feedback on the buyer after the auction is closed.

 

14. Auction Close

An auction will be considered as successfully closed if it receives at least one bid prior to the Auction End Date i.e. the date and time (as specified in that particular auction) beyond which bids shall not be accepted.

Immediately after any auction is successfully closed an e-mail is sent to both the Winning bidder and the seller providing each of them the contact information of the other party to enable them to get in touch with each other to fulfill the transaction. Please note that the contact information that will be sent out will be the information that is provided by the Users in their Registration Data on Website.

 

15. Feedback

We encourage Registered buyers and sellers on the Website to provide feedback to each other after the transaction has closed, this helps all Users to know what it is like to deal with the said buyer/seller. After you conduct a transaction, if applicable, we encourage you to leave feedback for the buyer or seller that you dealt with. Please remember that you cannot retract the feedback once you have left it. Your feedback will be displayed along with your user ID. Philamart will not be responsible for the feedback that you post on the Website and you should be careful about making comments that are not factual in nature and should not post defamatory or illegal or offensive/obscene contents.

You may not take any actions that may undermine the integrity of the feedback system. If you continue to receive negative feedback ratings, Philamart reserves the right to suspend your membership, and you will be unable to list, buy or bid on the Website.

 

Export - You acknowledge that your feedback consists of comments left by other Users and a composite feedback number compiled by Philamart, and that the composite number without the comments does not convey your full user profile. As feedback ratings are not designed for any purpose other than for facilitating trading between the Users, you agree that you shall not market or export your Website feedback rating in any venue other than on the Website.

Import - We do not provide the technical ability to allow you to import feedback from other websites to Philamart because a composite number, without the corresponding feedback does not reflect your true online reputation within our community.
